At the momen. I really like the idea of tourists flying around whil taking pictures. But I also like the idea of flying cars, a high speed train and the form of the satellite houses...
everybody knows the castle in the center, but what's also typical for nuremberg are the half-timber houses. They are abundant in architectural details and everyone looks different.
And then I looked up some interesting compositions on the web. Maybe they'll help me find a nice composition.
I´m working on my composition...And I think I´ll draw the flying tourists. ;)

I´ve chosen some colors from pictures of my pinterest collection.
I´ve added some UFO-shapes to represent the nuremberg castle and an ufo to make it look more futuristic. But I left the many little houses in the back like they look in reality to refer to the original look of the city.
In the end it wasn´t easy to find a good place for the typography. I wanted to leave some space free at the sky, so I placed the "Nuremberg 2040" on the sidewalk.
