Gene Sculatti

I’m 69 years old. I have been drawing fictitious cityscapes (using pen, crayon, watercolor) since I was 10, inspired mostly by the California I see around me. These scenes are from "Majestic West," a 28-foot-long, 18-inch-wide scroll begun in 2011 and completed in 2015 as an addendum to "Majestic Blvd.," a 60-foot-long cityscape started in 2006.
