British GQ Magazine David Hockney Los Angels Map Drawing
British GQ Magazine David Hockney Los Angels Map Drawing. I was approached by the editor for GQ magazine to illustrate a map of Los Angeles iconic sites. In addition to the well know site of LA, the visual references within the illustration of David Hockney sites – eg the Museum of Modern Art, LA Louver Gallery and The Hotel Rousevelt.
LA has many well recognized stylized ‘LA’ typographic signage for example like the Beverly Hills hotel, Rousevelt, Hollywood the Hollywood Sign, were also drawn as part of the illustration brief.
I was given a list of other points of interests to include into the LA map which also included, Venice Beach, Lawry’s ‘Prime Rib’ a nice big piece of Prime Rib was drawn for fun to represent this.
The map was loosely drawn, as a representation of LA, which the client preferred.
