Illustration Work: Karnhuset (part 3)


Here's another of the illustrations I did recently for Swedish agency, Karnhuset. This one is a view of their offices in Stockholm. As you can imagine, this one took a long time to draw, with all the architectural details and such. And I actually drew it twice - once as a small colour rough, and once as a big final image which was to be blown up and displayed poster-sized.

Normally, I'd be wary of trying to draw a scene like this without first visiting the location and shooting some reference photos, but obviously that wasn't possible this time. Thankfully though, they provided me with some excellent photos to work from.

Still, it would have been nice to visit Stockholm...

Warren: thanks again for dropping by. The Grasshopper, is sadly idling at the moment while I finish up some other work...but I'll be back to it in the new year.

Dominic: thanks again, Dominic!

Wow, thats awesome. I don't think I have the patience to draw such a detailed architectural piece like that.

So evocative, it makes me want to travel to Europe!
