Not exclusively created for Illustration Friday this recent work seemed appropriate to this weeks theme. People and technology are entangled, how far are we willing to go. A swipe payment system integrated into ones arm certainly has a certain yuk factor!
Starting life as a pen and ink drawing in my sketch book I lifted it into Corel Painter and worked up this full colour rendering. Painter 11 has a more responsive feel and I’m looking forward to exploring more of the tools.
My project for my MA has become about exploring the issues of technology and biology. Everyday scene’s with ever more encroaching technology. Surely living in London with all it’s creepy camera’s and surveillance machinery has had an effect.
It works as a topic for illustrations!
