If you want to see just how much Shanghai has grown as city, check out this fun and creative video by artists and illustrators Claire and Max. The video brilliantly shows the city's growth by drawing the skyscrapers, roadways and infrastructure into each landscape scene. 

This technique is very effective because they start each scene by eliminating the buildings that are there now and then the duo draws them in as they currently are in present day. It's a fantastic way to really get a feel of the city's enormous growth. 

The two artists have a bunch of these city illustration pieces called "Claire and Max's Archi'llusion series." The video will definitely make you appreciate just how much work and effort has gone into making Shanghai what it is today!
