Here are some of the development sketches for the utility boxes! On the top there are some bird studies and the bottom there are a few different layouts of the bug illustration. I ended up combining elements from all three of the bug drawings to create the final image.
I designed a couple of utility box wraps for the City of Calgary. I had originally looked to the younger residents of Calgary for inspiration for the design through a community outreach aspect of the project. Kids really love to draw bugs so I came up with the idea to draw some of the local insect population! I thought that was it but to my surprise they actually wanted me to design two utility boxes! Quickly I came up with another design that complimented the bugs, focusing on the birds of the city. Lots of fun working on these! Can’t wait to see them finished.
I other news I’m getting married in two weeks so updates might be a little scarce until I get back from my honeymoon, but things should pick back up again since I’ll be able to shift my focus from wedding planning back to illustrating!
