Pictures as below:
Once were building!
Some ruins standing
This was a main city road, lots of the buildings have fences up which cut down much of the roadways throughput. I think we have kept the makers of roadcones very very wealthy!

This is huge, props to anyone who can do art on this scale!
There were some burnt out buildings, heaps of art spaces that I didnt manged to get a good photo of but above sort of covers much of it.
Painting wise I managed to do a couple more inks on canvas:
Nanowrimo wise I have been keeping up with my word count but not pulling ahead like I had hoped. The story has been great to get back into but the fight to write book II that others have described is real!
