Back in 2007 I did an illustration for a shopping centre called 'Ocean Terminal' in Edinburgh. They where promoting the student savings scheme that operated in the centre and wanted posters, leaflets and various other bits and bobs to highlight this. As you can see they went for the 'Monster Savings!' route and I was happy to get the chance to draw 'King Kong' looming over the Edinburgh skyline and grabbing a student who needed reminding to save while shopping.
Sometimes when you work on a job you can produce something which will mostly be overlooked by everyone but you'll be particularly happy with, in the case it was the Edinburgh skyline. I cheated slightly and reduced the gap between the castle and the top of the High Street that actually exists so that we could fit more into the picture but overall I liked the little view I produced. Of course as soon as you draw a huge gorilla and girl your eye kind of gets drawn away from the skyline :)

Ad agencies almost NEVER fall for the old ' How about King Kong and a hot chick?' angle! Nice work.ReplyDelete
Yeah, shame the skyline gets lost amongst the bigger impact parts - it's a nice illustration just by itself. Kong rules.ReplyDelete
