The cut of a community’s jib
Other people look at their phones, their paperwork or their books.
I draw on commutes and on journeys to and from meetings.
What I see depends on when I travel. There are serial rush hours in East London: labourers and cleaners, City workers, kitchen, hospital, office and retail staff, students – and creative and tech people.
A set of illustrations developed from my sketchbook drawings, Catwalk Dogwalk Whistle is about the fashion parade of colour, pattern and style on the creative commute. But more than that, it’s about a community and what the cut of its jib says about the nature of its work.
The hand-stitched books went out to clients, collaborators and industry friends at Christmas 2017.
