I was asked to design a whole series of illustrations to capture the essence and history of each of the locations that the guides cover. Researching all the locations in depth resulted in every drawing being crammed full of large amounts of detail and hidden elements. This kept the reader engauged and searching for more within each drawing.
I produced each of the designs by accumulating the research and concept sketches then layering them using a combination of photoshop and a light box. Once the illustrations were finalised I re-drew the whole piece using a selection of biros and different weight pens to then be scanned for placement in the publications.
