Drawings: Great Hair

One more in my continuing series:

The illustration this time was of a hair salon interior designed by a colleague of mine. The task here was to represent the exact materials, furniture and finishes that had already been specified. Using markers, colored pencils, pastels and collage on white paper I wanted to emphasize the fun and playful nature of this imagined space.

Outlining or formatting the picture with objects in the picture itself helps bring an image to life and draw the viewer in. In this case I used the collaged suspended screen panels and the ceiling grid to outline the top of the image.

To help you prepare for your next modern house project I have created a one page list entitled “10 things to Consider When Building Your Modern House.” Just reply to this email with “10 Things” and I will forward to you!

Have a great weekend!
