For all my illustrations, I like to document the whole process, from initial sketches, notes, experiments and doodlings to the final piece. This was initially born out of a fascination as to how many of my favorite artists created their work and for a process that can be very time consuming, it’s a relief to see where you have come from.
Below are a few shots of a work in progress, my own take on the Keystone Design Union’s logo. Most of my work is half planned half evolving at the time and this piece still has a fair way to go.
A brief rationale: Scottish Thistle, Irish Clover, and British and American Roses reflecting the entwined historical roots of the Masonry organisation – and it’s part in the inspiration/creation of the KDU.
