Here is a commission I did recently. My friend wanted me to draw the area where he lived in Aukland as a present to his wife, so he sent me heaps of reference photos and google street views to work from.
The first sketch didn’t take much time and it had a lot of personality which I didn’t want to lose, so what I did was measure the dimensions and positions and transfer them to the A4 sheet using advanced mathematics techniques.
I was really happy with the drawing in the end, mainly because it should be hard to give life to apartment blocks, factories and traffic, but the screwy perspective and funny proportions do the trick!
It’s a little bogan slogan, but whatever, Trevor.
