zoot magazine

new illustration for zoot magazine. i was given a lot of freedom to create this image which is a response to a 'london diary'  written by ruby king .The piece mainly focus is about aspects of dalston. the point the author makes about  the term 'urban cool' being used in the media, really  meaning that their is still money to be made out of property, was my main focus. the estate agent characters placing sold placards in anything are pictorially based on painting of colonists claiming new land.
other aspects of dalston inform the picture, such as the fact it used to be a woodland with deer.
im not sure how much of this communicates straight away but i think it becomes clear with the text and doesnt need to be a direct communication  type of illustration
