Launch

This little boy ended up on my final postcards and some of my business cards. He was originally done as part of my proposed design for our London show invites - to "launch" all our new careers as illustrators. I really like these long composition versions and that's how they were printed up for the degree show (at about 200% of their original size). Here's them in context of the invite (front and back) and some closeups:



Last but not least some development sketches:

The boy with the plane raised in his hand reminds me of the film Empire of the Sun. Recommend if you haven't seen it. Lots of stunning visuals - esp the shots of all the abandoned stuff near the end of the film, weird juxtapositions, and weird stuff too!

Best wishes from damp Liverpool
