i came across these illustrations, i really love the image on the left as it is busy, vibrant and it reminds me of the wheres wally books i used to have, however the image on the right is a bit childlike and it brings down the other image which is quite sad because on its own the left image is very strong, but i am defiantly inspired by the bright colours.

photograph edited using sharpie pens
so this is the very beginning of my new project all about america, i have chosen new york as my main focus above is an image of some motor bikes i too when i was on a trip. I printed the photograph off and realised that the ink was running out (hence the green lines) i then started to draw the outline of the bikes and coloured them in before realising it i had created a really strong image

ok so for the past 4 weeks i have been struggling to put this McDonald's project together, so much so that i have been procrastinating and going on walks to draw trees, i mean what is that all about! so i felt as though i needed a new direction as i was sorting out my mac i came across my new york photographs and then it suddenly clicked! I am GOING to do a project all about my experience at new york. i will be creating a zine/artist book using first hand research i.e. my photos and i will be experimenting with different ideas, using different methods and cut and stick.
