Last spring I meant to start producing new works of art each week with my Friday Art Days. That was the plan . . . until I was hired overnight for a demanding job teaching at an international school in Toronto. I moved there the next day and discovered that I had no more time for myself. Summer came and went and I’ve spent a long time producing a secret cartoon series that I haven’t released yet. Now that Fall is upon us I am shifting gears back towards producing new artwork and I’m proud to share with you my newest piece.
Inspired by Toronto and Canada’s most recognisable architectural landmark, I decided that my next One Line Drawing should be of the famous CN Tower that has dominated the downtown skyline and waterfront for decades.
Funnily enough, the iconic tower was actually the easiest part of the entire drawing to complete. With its sleek and simple needle-point design, it was a breeze to manage. However, the modern repetitions of the square windows were daunting. The windows and buildings became their own jungle of fun to weave and maze around, trying to find my direction across, up and around the entire page.
It is interesting to note how complex the details look at a glance – but most of my time was spent thinking of how to simplify everything to make it manageable while still being impressive. Overall I am quite proud of this drawing and hope everyone else likes it too. If you do like it, share it.
Remember, another new and original piece of artwork will be released this Friday.
