EMI recently commissioned the brilliant Danny Allison to create this bold illustration for their latest CD cover.
This themed CD for the World Cup in South Africa will be distributed internationally for use in broadcasts worldwide. Danny was briefed to create a cover with an African theme but also to make it feel contemporary and original, I’m sure you’ll agree it’s a roaring success!
Artist Dryden Goodwin has created an incredible drawing project for Art on the Underground. Commissioned by Travel for London, the project saw Goodwin sketching 60 London Underground staff working on the Jubilee line. While he sketched, a camera recorded the development of each portrait, as well as his conversations with the sitters who talk about their jobs and their lives. “I like this sense of evoking both a physical and emotional mapping of the Jubilee Line. The portraits were drawn in a variety of locations such as train operator’s cabs, signal towers, management offices, station control rooms, ticket offices and at gates,” he says.
Posters in London tube stations encourage travellers to check out Dryden Goodwin’s project Linear, an in-depth sketching study of life on the Jubilee line.
New media company Nice Spots helped by creating the interface for Linear.
Visitors to the website can watch videos of the sketches being created, and listen to the sitters discussing their lives with the artist.
It’s like digital impressionism as artist Dryden Goodwin sketches 60 Jubilee line employees for Linear.
