Glasgow, where I currently live, has an abundance of beautiful iconic buildings. I am working on a series of vector designs based on Glasgow landmarks. This is a project I have desired to undertake for some time.

The People’s Palace is set in historic Glasgow Green. It is home to a collection of objects, photographs, prints and film which give a unique view into how Glaswegians lived, worked and played in years gone by to the present day.

The Winter Gardens are set to the side of the People's Palace where you can wander among the exotic palms and plants or enjoy a coffee or lunch at the café. Outside, you can admire the restored Doulton Fountain and relax in the beautiful surroundings of Glasgow Green, Glasgow's oldest public outdoor space.

This work is by far my most ambitious so far, but it was an Adobe Illustrator school in and of itself. Unlike my drawing of the Finnieston crane, the details of this structure are largely curved, not merely straight lines running from A to B. Great practise for using the Pen Tool, with some use of the Curved Pen Tool.
