“What makes me smile when I look at this drawing are the angry people behind the driving wheels shouting at each other, I can almost hear the cars honking. Also, the trio of students in the middle of the crossing, two girls laughing and a boy holding some books and a box with a frantic face, I really like how they turned out. On the other hand, drawing all those cars in different positions was a bit challenging in the beginning.
As for the creative process behind each drawing, the first step was always a very rough sketch of the buildings in order to nail down proportions and perspective. I did this on paper. Once I was satisfied with that, I scanned it and went on digitally on my computer.
The second step was the people. I drew around 150 characters for each illustration and there is no two identical ones, every one has been drawn from scratch. I didn’t make sketches for people, I just improvised, drawing straight forward one after the other.
The third step was adding colours, I used custom brushes that digitally imitate watercolours.”
