I was asked to draw an accompanying image for an article on green houses – the type that saves on electricity/heating/hot water bills etc – which are being pushed forward in contemporary architecture.
The brief was to exaggerate the idea of a green house, so in the image there’s a house in a tree with excess wind turbines and solar panels, the kids can pluck apples from the ‘wall’ of the house etc.
I never imagined any of my illo’s to appear in the Real Estate section of any newspaper, but that’s life! A smaller colour version appeared on the front page of the 30th June 2010’s New York edition. WOO HOO!
Took me 2hours 30mins from start to finish including scanning and photoshopping.
