When you are new to a city, what you notice is often not the iconic images of the city. This is what I noticed when we moved here from Boston. I walked by it every day to the bus stop on the way home after work. It is Dollar Bank in Pittsburgh. To me it is a fun and funny building, and I always loved the lions. It is the first ink drawing I made after moving here from Boston. Now you have to go to the Heinz History Center to see the lobster sign for Klein’s Restaurant. Eventually I did some space planning work for Dollar Bank and got to know some of the folks there. Now and then one of the executives would ask for a painted version of the drawing which I did more or less like this.

I realize you cannot see both inclines from here but oh well…artist’s license!
