Amongst other things, I’ve recently been working on a sketch for a Vertical drawing of London which has been an enormous challenge.

 

As always, the problem with drawing London is deciding what to include – there’s so many intriguing landmarks and fascinating areas that it’s impossible to decide which sections to focus on. With this piece, the layout added some constraints – although the drawing takes a few liberties in terms of how it shows the layout of the city, I did want there to be some geographical accuracy to the drawing. I always think these kinds of pieces are better if they have some sort of relationship with reality as it makes viewing the piece much easier if the composition makes some sort of sense.

 

I had a request for a print of the sketched draft of this drawing so I did an initial print run of 5 copies which can be purchased here
