The city goes smash

November 19th, 2009 · post by Edd · Make a comment

I’ve always found renaissance artwork fascinating; or at least their determination to personify everything from Ovid to the New Testament. This is a poster I’m working on personifying ‘retribution’. I’m not at all happy with the colour yet; I think I’ll probably have to add a fourth colour and start playing around with different overlays to get the effect that I’m after. It’s a little clichéd but I don’t really care. I mean a giant-anarcho smashing up the City of London, fleeing bankers, cameo appearances from Bakunin and Goldman and ravens leaving the Tower of London ticks alot of my personal hopes and dreams of what might happen in 2010.

Here’s some details of Emma Goldman and Mikheil Bakunin, and some of the circle illustrations:

Oh, and on a completely separate tangent I’ve been trying to play around more with type. This is a sketch of some of the stuff I’ve been playing around with.
