My friend Jill is going to England as part of a student exchange program and will be studying art and traveling around London for a month this summer. She's asked me to create a book that she can take with her that is "London themed." Now normally I like making things that look a bit weathered and aged but I couldn't really find any embellishments that went that direction. Most of the stickers and papers I found were more modern and edgy. I wanted the whole book to feel cohesive so...this was a bit of a challenge for me! Here are a few pictures of the cover...more pics to come soon!
On the left is the full cover. The main feature is the St. George's cross and then lots of sketches and doodles of the word London and 2010. There are also a couple of other things hidden in there like Jill's name and I hid my own name in there too. You'll probably also see a paint brush and the British flag and above the 'red London' there is a crown. And if you look REALLY close you can see my double decker bus that turned out to look like a skateboard...lol whoops!
