finally the long awaited CITYSCAPES series. these five pictures are a definite milestone for me as they officially introduce another STYLE to my portfolio. i’ve found that i quite like the raw, spontaneous feel of the original pencil drawings and therefore decided to cut the ink and get them straight into photoshop. i’ve started to work like this much earlier already (with my POLITICAL CARTOONS from 2003) but for some reason only now, about four years later, it all of a sudden makes sense for my actual illustration work as well. the new style allows me to loosen up the sometimes too perfect, almost ‘anal’ ligne claire artwork (a lot of people repeatedly ask me whether it’s been done on a computer) and it subtly moves me away from the semi-annoying graphic novel connotations i’m often getting.
anyway, i feel very excited about these. hope you guys like them as well :)
