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?
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.
“Gestalten specializes in developing content for aficionados of cutting-edge visual culture worldwide. For us, visual culture is the output resulting from the interrelationship of design, art, architecture, photography, and other visual disciplines with each other as well as other areas such as popular culture and music. In drawing from a variety of influences and combining them in ways not yet seen before, this work is pushing contemporary creative expression to new frontiers.”
The Sydney illustration has a timeless classic feel. It is inspired by the harbor glamor and time spent catching the Sydney Ferries enjoying the beautiful glittering water with the contrasting skyline.
The illustration features classic city landmarks from the Sydney Opera House to New Year fireworks, city skyline, The Rocks heritage area, Museum of Contemporary Art, Hyde Park and the obligatory fruit bats and sharks of the harbour.
The Sydney illustration was one of the first I made and it is also one of the most complicated to screen print technically as the field of opaque harbour blue is quite large.
The illustration is available as an art print, tea towel and cushion cover in our online store or at our stockists.
