Perspective is everywhere and using my knowledge of two point perspective I created this row of buildings and added simple tone using a dip pen and ink.

George Hardie is a graphic designer and illustrator who frequently uses perspective in his work which is emphasized by the the flat colours he applies, this gives him very accurately drawn images.
Using my knowledge of perspective I did a study of two bottles and applied flat colour in a similar way to George Hardie.

Charles Dana Gibson was an illustrator and after hearing about him in a lecture I decided to get his book out of the library. Gibson's drawings are full of character and emotion because of how he has used line to create tone and form.
When sketching out figures I decided to use pen so that I could quickly add tone with the lines I was creating.

Antoni Tapies is a Spanish painter who developed a very recognizable style soon after he begun painting. Tapies uses a variety of materials in his paintings ranging from soil to rope which gives them a rich and interesting texture.
To create my cubes inspired by Antoni Tapies I have used soil and string which gives them rich and unusual textures.
