Illustration Friday - metropolitan

Another weird Illustration Friday topic - this time metropolitan.

Merriam-Webster online Dictionary gives the definition as:
1 : the primate of an ecclesiastical province
2 : one who lives in a metropolis or displays metropolitan manners or customs.

Not really something that sparks the imagination IMo. Anyway my thoughts on this topic went something like - cities - ant or termite cities - ants in the city. Not very excititing really.
Ants are pretty amazing and as well as living in vasy city colonies the also manage to infest high rise buildings so they are metropolitan in more ways than one.

The whole ant-metropolis thing is exactly what I've had running through my head too, but I haven't been able to come up with a satisfying image yet. Good work on yours, though!

Your ants look like they are waiting in line for the Ice Cream truck. Wait for me ! I want a Dove bar with original chocolate and make it a double !
Fancy ants in the truck drivers pants...
