A double post! Two new designs I enjoyed working on here. I like challenging myself with recreating the fur on different animals, as correct shading is imperative in making the animals look convincing both in the fur they distinctly have but also as a vehicle to show their form and shape
I am in love with these graphic logos used as document covers for Insurance Maps for different cities in America.
The intricacy and crispness of these stunning designs are seldom seen in any form of graphic design nowadays.
My work always in some way harks back to the traditional and I may use these as a basis for a future greeting card or piece of packaging design
I took a short break out from my current Christmas-themed work to turnover an illustration which was essentially a two day project. Above shows me explaining the intricacies of this piece to Sheamus ;)
I am interested in producing more line illustrations created with pen, coloured in flat tones. I have a lot of areas I want to refine, including both the definition and colour palettes, but this was a nice tester to see how things look initially.

This is my final design for the Next Stop, Christmas! card. I have added a snowy road to the car so it isn't floating in the air. The snow on the christmas tree gives a much more wintery festive feel so this was a nice touch to add.
Here the car still looks plain and the tree just looks like a random tree.
The white background is more contemporary, however as a vintage card I feel the card should be more inviting and old fashioned with a warm Christmassy feel.
