duvet design part 03

with the recent duvet design project i had been dealing with pattern until i was given a brief. the commission was now to be based on a sketch i had previous shown the client of some houses. the brief was to combine this with a forest of some kind . this felt like well trodden territory both for me and a lot of illustration now. in order to try to get a fresh perspective some first hand drawing in epping forest was needed. the top and fourth drawings are the only ones that really informed me, told me something useful, more than just a drawing of a tree

duvet design part 01

ive been working on a duvet design for collective editions over the christmas break. at first there was no brief so i took the chance to explore pattern. structured with repeat elements but with no ambition to redraw, work them up, imperfections left as the the rules to the pattern evolves through the drawing

Harpers magazine

final illustration

worked up version


new illustration for Harpers Magazine for a short story written by Myla Goldberg. In trying to get a lot of elements into the image, it became very disjointed in the early stages.
