Aftermath of a Fire

I was biking downtown and stopped to sketch what remained of four businesses destroyed by fire:

A morning fire destroyed part of a retail and apartment complex on the 2100 block of Chicago Avenue South, in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis.

A fire fighter told me the city will tear down the building as soon as possible.... sad.


  1. Ken, this is sad, but I love your drawing, esp. the hoses snaking around in the foreground. I'm trying to remember what was at that location!

  2. I dig the journalism here. 19th century newspaper feel. Terrific drawing.
