From a distance the metropolis announces itself an ominous gear propelled by an endless sea of faceless denizens. As we are drawn into the chaos the city begin to reveal their true identity. From street level the buildings still take the shape of a giant gear, only now we can see it is all sorts of unique and crazy individuals, not anonymous crowds, that fuel the machine. The sidewalks are filled with strange faces, giant robots, monsters and super-humans all interacting with each other as they try to get through the day. The roads are jam packed with cars and trucks moving around like the vascular highways of the city bringing life to it's limns. Watching over the weird activities stands the towering architecture with a multitude of windowed eyeballs and giant entrances for mouths. In the center of all the routines hides an enormous eye, a metaphysical manifestation of the human unconscious, around which all of all routines can spin. Welcome to the monstrous metropolis known as “The City of Gears”! T-shirts, Graphic Novels, Affordable Posters, Limited Edition Fine Art Prints and Original Comic Art for sale by artist Mike Parsons.
