This is a personal piece, it is a re-design and re-draw of my ‘Dirty Paws’ concertina book, taking various elements from it that worked well and putting them into one circular image. I still want to revisit the concertina sequence as a whole at a later stage. Phosphor art are doing a mailing to clients of my work in the coming weeks so I may use this image for that once I have added colour.
This drawing is part of a poster I am doing around the theme ‘Urban in Nature - Nature in Urban’. Once I have added the other elements it will focus on the competition between man and nature, in particular the cultivation of land in Africa by farmers, and its effect on the Gelada baboons. The baboons are being driven further up the mountain to colder climates due to farming of the land. This is a re-draw of a design I posted a while back, as I felt the previous design needed developing.
This is a drawing I have just completed that will form part of the front cover for a book jacket, more on this coming soon!
