In the land of squeezy bottles
Ha! I've been having a lot of fun. My latest illustration assignment for the London Art College was to design some buildings from squeezy bottles, and then expand this idea to create a city that might exist under the kitchen sink. I loved this whole concept, and as I never clean out the cupboard under the sink (inefficiency can be an excellent thing), I had abundant material to work with.
The church is the Home Brand Rinse Aid bottle - I never appreciated before what a lovely, classic bottle that is! The critters under the sink appeared while I was doodling and seemed to be having a splendid time, so I let them party. I also did this rather terrifying military installation in the desert based on a Sprite bottle and our recent Route 66 drive through the badlands of Arizona.
