I'm currently working on a series of illustrations for Starscape - a new venture soon to be launched by Chris Smillie. It's intended to be a storypaper in the good ol' fashioned sense - a mix of prose and pictures, with the text hopefully reading more like thrilling adventure/horror/sci-fi comics. I've been contacted by a couple of writers to provide illustrations for their contributions, and this is the second one I've done so far. It's a work in progress - the finished pic will have columns of black smoke rising from the buildings and a scene involving several figures in the foreground, but I thought I'd post the backdrop at this point so I can document the process behind what is for me a complicated piece. I find it hard to get excited about drawing buildings and vehicles - I'm much more a head and shoulders man! I tried to come with ways of making it more exciting. First of all, a google image search on Brutalist architecture brought up the main building (which is actually - appropriately enough - an FBI headquarters), then to further spice things up for myself I deliberately tried to experiment with my inking technique. I'm quite pleased with the result so far... stay tuned for the finished piece.
