Cycling Around London Town
I enjoy cycling, as well as living in the greatest city in the world, London. I created this personal piece of work mostly out of enjoyment, and a little portfolio piece of work, combing this 2 things I enjoy, cycling and London town.
I have increasingly introduced typography into my work. combining hand drawn scripted type with my illustration style. I created London iconic land marks such as the London eye, Big Ben and the Sir Norman Foster sky scraper, the Gherkin and incorporated them with cycling illustrated elements. The bike chain, is the link device I thought of to bring the elements together.
I use google images to reference imagery I am going to use in a illustrated project. I like to chose 3 -4 different looking objects and decide upon the best one to use, its mostly chosen on a aesthetic level, and how the other elements and images work together. I use a combination of drawing the elements and tracing them in illustrator to convert them into vector artworks, the next step is combining all the illustrated elements and organising them into a cohesive illustration.
