A personal editorial project on an article about future cities entitled "City with a Brain" that I completed a couple of weeks ago. I was inspired by an old children's book that had little people travelling round the various pipes and systems in the human body in little boats. I concentrated on the "no waste" idea of these future cities and used the kidneys as a way to represent the processing of the cities' waste I've been trying to push my colours a lot more recently and I am pretty pleased with how the colours in the spot Illustration turned out particularly.
It's been a while since I last posted on this blog and this has mainly been because I have been posting more regular updates on my new tumblr blog http://mr-green-tea.tumblr.com. However, do not fear! This blog is here to stay as I will be posting more in depth posts about projects that I am working on and every once in a while will make posts like this in which I collate all the sketches that I have been uploading to my tumblr. So without further a do, here is a little peak into what I have been doodling in my sketchbook these past few weeks.
I recently redesigned my Profile image for all of my internet portfolios and social media platforms. I wanted to have an image that represented me as well as what I did and of course, I couldn't resist throwing a bike in there too. I have gone for a simple graphic style and used one of my favourite shades of Orange for the background. My friend Lucie http://muggyebes.tumblr.com pointed out that it looks like I have Michael Jackson's gloves on and although I see her point I'm rather too pleased with this image to be bothered really.
Inspired by Owen Davey's Photoshop working methods I am now constructing a lot of my drawing as separate pieces which I scan in and then merge together.
