Sounds of the City - an illustrated interpretation of urban sound

My entry into "The Prize for Illustration 2017" in association with the AOI and London Transport Museum. The theme was Sounds of the City, so my interpretation was inspired by the sounds of both night and day in the big city. 

Children's Book concepts

I was asked to create a couple of images for a children's book so they could be sent to a publisher. Here are the two images. I decided to do 2 very different scenes from the portion of text I was sent. Night and day. Inside and outside.
