The Sydney poster is off and running! Above, you will see my first completed attraction. This is actually the entrance to an amusement park in Sydney called Luna Park. It is something that I did not go to while in Australia a few years back, but it seems to be a very iconic structure. The top of the entrance actually says “Luna Park”, but I figured it needed a change for my illustration.
For whatever reason, I decided to start with a very detailed building. I guess I felt like I needed to jump into this illustration head first. When I did the Chicago poster, I started with the ferris wheel. I am finding that I really enjoy this kind of illustration. While I told myself that I did not necessarily want to be known for making just “city” illustrations, they seem to fit my style comfortably. Part of me feels like I need to continue to sharpen my skills as I design and create more “experimental” landscapes. The Chicago poster and this poster will certainly be very referential with a twist. The trick will be making something that is not as familiar as a city become an illustration that really sets me apart.
