Not all my illustrations end up on holiday (see my previous post).
Often they never manage to travel beyond a PowerPoint presentation in a closed room, but occasionally it’s nice to see them ‘in the wild’ helping out with some publicity.
Recently some of my illustrations travelled with Boris Johnson to New York. Eventually they ended up on a few websites…
City AM, “Goodbye Jammersmith, hello to Wombling free? Mayor Boris Johnson outlines radical plans to solve capital’s congestion headaches” 10/2/15
City Metric, “London’s mayor wants to start putting major roads into tunnels” 9/2/15
Maybe they even managed to get printed somewhere, who knows. In this case they were amended slightly by my direct client. Not immediately apparent and quite subtle; but I can tell. A bit like teenagers getting their ears pierced or tinting their hair colour I suppose. Flippancy aside, I think these proposals are great idea given the rising land prices in London. Not for the easing of congestion and building more roads but for more housing and parkland. Hopefully, they provoke some serious discussion.
