An illustration of St. Agnes from my A2 project Visit Cornwall. This was part of a series of illustrations for infographics to be placed in public locations, sharing Cornwall’s industrial heritage with tourists.
The original line art was all done by hand. This was then digitised before the colouring process took place.
I had different (but complementary) colour palettes for each location, with St. Agnes having orangey-soil colour to reflect the industry, and what remains of it.
This was actually the start of my ‘breaking away’ stage – I didn’t want to be condemned to a life of digital-only design, without ever doing anything by hand. It’s what helped inspire me to spend an extra year on an art foundation, which let me try Fine Art, 3D, and Life Drawing.
