Drawing in Docklands

I worked on an exciting commission in October with IRS, the specialist office interiors company. They were fitting out new offices in Docklands for an international tech company and wanted bespoke drawings to decorate the walls. One of the images was blown up to fill an entire wall and others formed a gallery in the main boardroom.

A compilation image was used as a large mural.

The brief asked for black and white line drawings with touches of blue, reflecting the client's corporate colours. They needed to reflect the heritage of the area, focussing on cranes, boats and canals. I made most of the drawings on location, in and around the South Quay area. It's a really interesting spot so was a very enjoyable job. The sort of drawing that I love to do!

If you would like to know more about commissioning bespoke illustrations for yourself or your company, please get in touch!
