I ❤ Tel Aviv

September 9, 2013

I did promise that I’d be sketching in ink again. I really love this technique. Firstly, I can produce a small illustration in a few hours. More importantly, there’s a ‘cartoon’ graphic quality to the image, partly because of the black ink outline, but also because of the block shading in paint. This quality adds a touch of fun to the sketches, representing the fun I have creating them.

I chose Tel Aviv as my subject this time, working from photos taken myself but also compositions found online. (Unfortunately it’s too hot here at the moment to sit outside in-situ and draw.)

The following is a series of 6 drawings, representing different aspects and cultures, architecture and nature in this diverse city.
