Collector Car Market

Classic Car

I received a request from Matt asking if I was interested in producing an image for the Insider column of Radius magazine about the collector car market. It was a refreshing change - a whole different array of shapes and textures. The story itself was about the best strategies to employ in order to build a diverse and rewarding collection of vintage cars. As there was nothing too editorially specific to illustrate it felt like something more collage-like or abstract could work well. Here is the completed image, published spread, and below the submitted pencil sketch which was submitted for approval before artwork was commenced.

Wine and Spirits Distribution

Wine and Spirit Distribution

Art Director Todd from Market Watch got in touch wanting an image that represented wine distribution from the wholesaler to the retailer/consumer in the era of e-commerce. Indications of a network hub, transportation and storage were requested elements.

I'm a big fan of negative shapes and I quickly saw how one could work well in this instance. Once I had that working as the point of focus it was then a case of working out a design to incorporate the various items and deciding on a colour palette.

Construction Site Scavengers 2

In addition to the cover below Security Management also wanted a full page image to accompany the article.

Continuing the mapie theme by merging them with the rear view of a thief in cuffs. It was felt that the result was too reminiscent of an angel so instead surrounded the captured criminal with the birds.

I was more than happy with the resultant spread by Tyler whose imaginative typography really made the image work to its best advantage.

Construction Site Scavengers

Construction Site Scavengers

I was asked by Tyler at Security Management magazine to create a cover illustration based on the theme of construction site thieves and the security required these days to stop them. Copper in particular is most sought after.

Birds are always visually appealing and magpies are known for their thieving characteristics so felt an ideal choice for this piece - stealing pieces of copper tubing. I enclosed the construction site within a dome to convey the security aspect.

Security Management uses black or a very dark background with a dominant colour. Here a coppery orange/brown was thought most suitable.
