The San Francisco art work is finished and features Alcatraz, Golden Gate bridge and more. It is a smaller sized print and looks great when mixed and matched with the other prints in the series. You can find the print here in our online shop.
When illustrating the San Francisco print I looked at streetscapes, how the city is planned and small details and features. Then I took a step back and started to eliminate and clean up the design and what was left was the essentials. I think it’s really interesting to think about what particular corner stones that makes a particular city recognisable? Is it the Golden gate bridge, tram or Alcatraz, that makes us identify the city as an illustration?
The second place to be illustrated in the Tiny World series of illustrations is San Francisco art work. I’ve been working so many late evenings to get this little collection finished. It’s really fun to look at the small details of places and draw them and finally arranging them into place. Here’s a little detail shot from the print.
There’s on little publishing house that over and over again publishes the most awesome titles. Gestalten verlag is by far one of my favourite. Therefore today was a little extra special as they posted my Dublin illustration. A good Tuesday. This Tuesday wasn’t just a Tuesday.
