My latest commission was illustrating an article about taking your car abroad. This is an article for 'Motability Lifestyle', the motoring magazine for the disabled.
Driving on foreign roads is tough enough for the able bodied.Yet another reason to be very thankful.
The client asked for full colour artwork, which is great, I like working in colour. But then I thought I'd take a look at a black and white version of the illustrations. I don't know about you but I think they look pretty darn good. Moody, atmospheric if you like. Just like the good old black and white movies back in the day and sometimes used today with great effect. 'The Artist' a great example.
I really would appreciate your thoughts on this. Which do you prefer? Black and White? or Colour?
I know we all like colour commissions but which do you prefer in this editorial, colour or black and white?
