Two Illustrations based on the city of Manchester, I wanted to capture the liveliness of the outer parts of the city, from the busy city centre to the alley ways of the suburbs.
Manchester has a real sense of pride about it. I haven't yet met a Mancunion that hasn't given the impression of loving Manchester.
The second image is based on Manchester too, and also based on a poem called, 'The Ragpickers Wine'. After reading the poem I felt that I needed to relate this to the buzzing atmosphere that bellows through the alley ways.
