Banana, Sliced

Banana Skin

Coffee Cup & Beans

Daffodil in a Jar

Here are some recent illustrations created for a Metro Newspaper advertising campaign, to promote their new scented printing services. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get my hands on the illustrations actually being used in print so I'm not entirely sure how it all turned out, which is always a shame.

I've included both banana illustrations, although the banana skin wasn't used in the end as it was perceived to have litter connotations, which I tend to agree with. I think it's useful to record the progression of a brief, perhaps next time I will think a little more on the possible associations of the images I choose to work from!
