On January 2nd, the state of Georgia became 230 years old! Today, a look back to April of 2010 when I created the city skyline drawing of Atlanta, Georgia.

I utilize many tools when designing the layout of a new city skyline drawing. I look for everything ranging from maps, photos, online reviews of destination hot spots,and historical references. All of it comes together to create a “collapsed” skyline that hopefully captures everything one might need to trigger thoughts of that particular city.

Looking at midtown Atlanta from the north east area near Ansley Park proved to have a sweeping view of all the major skyscrapers I wanted to include. The above similar view is courtesy of Google Earth. After much plotting and planning… the baseline city skyline drawing of Atlanta, Georgia was born.

This skyline has since been used in many wedding invitations, moving announcements, and other various projects… including as a tattoo! 😍

You can download this skyline today to use in your DIY projects. I’d love to see photos of what you create with it.
