Slussen again

slussen_stomatol_11

I went drawing at Slussen here in Stockholm today. I like drawing there, it´s always a busy place, full of people and traffic. It´s an inspiring mixture of old beautiful buildings and worn down ugly structures for the traffic and subway. Just the way I like it.

The Stomatol sign is Stockholm´s oldest ‘animated’ advertising sign, consisting of approximately 1350 light bulbs in different colours. It was first installed in 1909, and it´s still up there. Quite impressive, huh? It´s a landmark here in Stockholm, and it can´t be all that unknown to the world, since there is even an English Wikipedia page about it. : )

I was drawing a lot at Slussen last autumn, then it got too cold. It´s good to be back. See more of my Slussen drawings here.
