OUR CREATIVE PROCESS

Unlike more traditional methods, our work is a combination of drawing, painting and illustration. We use both hand-drawn and computer-aided techniques to create our desired effect.  

 

HOW THE GEOGRAPHY IS PLANNED


  • All of our pieces start the same way - by studying the atlas! We use printed atlases, maps, sattelite imagery and other sources to plan the area that we want to portray. This process is the first phase of  creating a base drawing which will be used as the foundation for the composition. 

 

WE LIKE LAYERS! 


  • Each one of our pieces is made by combining several layers of drawings, paintings and illustrations. Some pieces use as few as (3) layers, but most have anywhere between (5) and (7) separate components.  We love this layered effect because it gives us a wide range of flexibility on how the final piece will look. 

 

WHAT THE COLORS MEAN


  • For most of our work, the color choices are based upon a personal experience in the location portrayed. For example, the pink tones in our Washington DC piece were inspired by the Cherry Blossom Festival and the yellow orange and blue tones in the Chicago piece were inspired by the neon lights of the billboards against the night sky. Inspiration comes in various forms and we try to channel our inspiration from real-life  experiences into our work as much as possible.

Description from Merchant:

Each one of our pieces is created by developing a series of hand-drawn layers, with its own intended purpose for the whole. Each layer is a sketch, painting or drawing that is made independently, using various artistic mediums in a way that makes it compliment the other layers. These layers are then digitally combined to make a single final piece. The final piece is then produced as a high-quality print on paper or canvas.
