There really isn’t a great deal I can add to these amazing drawings, so I’ll let them speak for themselves. The artist is Tim Doyle; and they’re part of a show he’s got going in San Francisco. You can read all about it (and see higher resolution images) at his website.

These are part of a larger series, with images of fake places from everything from Seinfeld and Arrested Development to Sesame Street. You can get prints of any of them starting at a mere $40 from the gallery’s store. If you’re in the Bay Area and you want to go see them for yourselves, they’ll be up until February 23rd at Spoke Art in San Francisco.
