Afternoon in Kyoto

Afternoon in Kyoto

 

I left the inking like this for now. Maybe in the future I can colour it. It’s a fun combination of sketching, detailed drawing and cartoon illustration. I love the complexity of the scene with all the telephone and electricity lines. I drew this from a photograph I took myself. It was taken from a bridge of what is probably quite an ordinary street in Kyoto. The perspective was a fun drawing work-out!

Toasted update!

Here’s an update to show that while I’ve been hiding under a rock I have managed to be coaxed into producing some illustrations based on the going toast characters in this blog.

Have a look at the final video which I made for Blue Crow Media.

I have to be straight with you, there is no nudity, but I hope you find it to your taste.

Here are the illustrations that were featured in the video.

Today’s illustration is inspired by Jony Ive’s lovely gradients and some reflection on being spawned in the 1980s.

Here are some iphone ios 7 wallpapers based on this. Go on, funk up your screen even more 🙂
