Chrysanthemum Floral Detailed drawing
Chrysanthemum Floral Detailed drawing, looking through my work portfolio, its noticeable I have many architectural and map drawings and few organic forms, such as floral drawings. My vector work had always had a natural organic form to it, and it was natural to work in that way. Since developing the hand drawn maps and architecture, I am missing that organic natural forms, and its a conscious decision to try and bring the organic form back into my work which would bring a balance to the hand draw maps and architecture drawings.
I guess drawing has always been natural to me, and its only now that I am drawing again, after a long period as working as a vector artist. I enjoy drawing more then working purely as a vector artist. I guess it allows me to experiment much more with different techniques, and I find it pleasurable to draw in my spare time and sketch, while at home or out and about which was something I did not do enough of as a vector artist, to quickly sketch an idea or thought, or a location capturing a scene of everyday life.
I have discovered working with different mediums, such as screen printing, paints and inks, have bought a interesting and different level of richness to my illustration work, which I was not able to achieve while I was working as a vector artist, something which I try and work at on a daily bases.
