Mattias Adolfsson animates buildings in amazing ways with the stroke of a pen, first drafted in pencil, followed by splashes of mellow color that slowly bring them to life. He sells prints (and some originals) of his work on Etsy , features examples on Behance , and has recently released a book compiling images of choice examples, from stomping architectural monstrosities to improbably tall and thin structures as well as buildings that fly, float, spin in the air or even soar through space. The subjects, as you can see, range but tend to focus on built environments with a Steampunk-like nostalgia for vintage styles and historic decor, splicing bits and pieces with Dutch, German, Gothic, Renaissance, Roman and Greek roots (and with enviably reckless abandon).
