Copenhagen

I started this drawing  of Copenhagen a while ago and am finally starting to piece it all together. Here’s the first two panels, both separately and laid out.

The remaining two sections are still being drawn and I may need to edit these bits somewhat when I look at the final thing altogether but I’m fairly pleased with how it looks so far:


Edinburgh Sketch

I’m trying out a few slightly different ways of drawing, both in pencil and in pen.

Here’s a few stages of a sketch of Edinburgh; ultimately this will be a panoramic drawing and this section will be the left hand side of the piece:

Architectural Drawings: China

Architectural drawings of landmarks and significant buildings in China.

 

This was a commission undertaken for a cruise company so I would be very grateful if these weren’t copied or reproduced etc etc.

 

All illustrations were hand drawn using a Rotring Rapidograph on paper.


Architectural Illustrations: France

Architectural drawings of landmarks and significant buildings in France.

 

This was a commission undertaken for a cruise company so I would be very grateful if these weren’t copied or reproduced etc etc.

 

All illustrations were hand drawn using a Rotring Rapidograph (.25 if anyone is interested) on paper.

I’m going to be posting a few of these over the next few weeks as they’re interesting to look back on.
