Sketch 10: City of the light

A friend told me that to him, Melbourne is a city of the light. Though it does not bring a feeling of ‘vanity’ like Paris – the capital of the light, it is indeed a play of the light of a rich mixed culture. Based on his thought, I made a sketch of the light around Melbourne CBD that my friends and I found interesting in order to draft a picture of the city we are living in. It could be the dim light on a stairway to university, it could be the light from bright red lanterns hung up high in Chinatown, it could be the light from giant LED displays in Federation Square or vivid color outside the Royal Exhibition during the White Night event.
