Two poster illustrations from May

Back in April and May I was working on these illustrations for posters for very different functions. One was another Surrey Christians in Science event, for which I chose the image of the hand of God from Michaelangelo’s Sistine Chapel dissolving into strands of DNA. The other was the map for the venue of Game Camp 5, a regular gaming UNconference based in London! For this my inspiration was the board of HeroQuest and schlocky dungeon paraphernalia like my own “Watcher in the Deep” on security!

While I was doing the “Hand of God” image I was thinkingĀ about illustration and the communication angle to it. All artists are communicators, but illustration has a certain expectation that it should have conveying a message at its core. I like projects that get me mining my knowledge for inspiration as well as using my eyes and imagination.

The Creation or Evolution – Do We Have To Choose? image uses the following stock images: Texture 003 by pacifist on flickr, Inkwater 5 andĀ Inkwater 14 by AzureFalls on DeviantArt.

Note: The Keyworth Dungeon Map is 1.31MB so that the detail can be seen.

[Poster illustration from GameCamp 5 removed because the GameCamp 6 map, which you can see in the Gallery, is much nicer. ~24/4/2014]
