London Transport Museum Poster

“This year, the theme is the River Thames and entries should feature the river as a central feature of London and London life. It is the task of entrants to create an illustration that draws attention to the benefits of the river.”

I wished to create a busy illustration full of energy and different elements. The river Thames being the strong focus on the illustration, through positioning and a use of carefully collaged light paper, which stands out on the brown background. I wished to communicate the energy and variety around the river from buildings to transport, through mark making and colours. On the left hand side of the image the Houses of Parliament stands strong using sharp linier marks and black pen. On the other side of the river a different energy is shown using circular marks and a red pen.
