Commuter Birds / Tube Tree
It's been so long since I posted last... I don't know where the days have gone...? You know how sometimes you get fixated on an idea then as you work on the picture you realise it isn't living up to what you originally had in your minds eye... well this post is it. I've always loved the graphical simplicity of the London tube map and the way Harry Beck's original design approach has developed into an iconic image. The whole tree/tube notion has been floating around in my head for weeks now and I decided to do something with it. This doesn't do the idea justice but to honest I think it's a dead end path for the present and I need to get onto more productive projects. Plus I sometimes find working in adobe illustrator a bit sterile. This post felt a bit like doing a maths problem. Ho hum, you live and learn with every picture don't you.
