How to build a rocket in the middle of your living room!!

Anoth­er great com­mis­sion from Art Dir­ect­or, James Young, for Life­style Magazine

It’s a great magazine cre­ated spe­cific­ally for the phys­ic­ally chal­lenged. I am com­mis­sioned to add some light hearted humour to the sub­ject mat­ter ‘Adult Edu­ca­tion’.

What a great theme, Adult Edu­ca­tion cov­ers so many fields. When cre­at­ing an illus­tra­tion I aim to avoid­ing the obvi­ous, but at the same time, mak­ing sure the main idea is eas­ily under­stood. Quite a chal­lenge, but very a very import­ant les­son for any bud­ding illus­trat­or out there. Hence the fun and crazy idea of using Adult Edu­ca­tion Classes to cre­ate a rock­et in the middle of the liv­ing room?? And why not??

I like detail, but in so doing, I do rather cre­ate a lot of work for myself. Ah well who needs sleep any­way?

Let me know your thoughts. Should there be less detail? Should the col­ours be flat? Or do you prefer with shad­ing?

It’s always great to hear from you, so com­ments and thoughts are very wel­come and very use­ful.

    Like the col­ours as they are, and the detail which draws your eye to look for more.

    I love them all! Very col­our­ful fun and intric­ate!
    FYI- On the mobile, the title cov­ers 13 of the thumb­nail when u enlarge the pics. Plus- I couldn’t ‘slide’ from one pic to the next.
