Pulau Seribu memory

This is an old one I rediscovered—a montage (non-digital) of cut-up bits of watercolour paintings—made when I was still living in Jakarta.

It was part of a set of illustrations for a World Wildlife Fund book, but was never actually used in the end.  

Illustrations for Road & Track

Sweet illustration job for Road & Track magazine—with big thanks to Cassidy Zobl.

This issue is themed ‘handmade’, and the idea was to create illustrations which depicted the two cars as if captured in a sketchbook. Everything was indeed handmade but some extra splashes and marks, and that fold down the middle of the page in the first one, were added digitally.

Lounge view

This is the view from my sofa, lovingly rendered in ink and pencil at about 50 x 70 cm.

My floor isn’t normally this untidy, I should make this clear. I was thinking more about the composition. The man on the screen is someone else I photographed talking about war one morning.
