The Library by robertemerald

Wonderful places libraries. The internet will never replace them. This was done with ordinary coloured pencils (same as those you buy at a supermarket or newsagent), though the outside (through the window) was done with black and coloured ink. The symmetry of the librarians is deliberately contrasted with the library’s rectangles, the muted colour of the library (why I used pencils) with the scary outdoors.

Designed for sale as a greeting card, though I’ll put it on a T-Shirt if requested.

Thankyou redbubble.

Fully trained and working Graphic Designer and Animator, though I love art for art’s sake. Also I love to surf, or the beach at least. You’ll see that in my style and subject choice. I also love to read books, especially history and science fiction. I live near the coast in Perth, Western Australia. I have a redbubble site just for my photography, which I think you search for under robphillips.

    Love the colors. I agree with you that the internet will never replace libraries.

    this is fabulous. I can really relate to this as my daughter in law works in a library.

  • Thankyou Scallyart, not often one really gets a good idea for pencils, it seemed to turn out ok, so I appreciate the compliment. Thankyou for adding me to your favourites and watchlist.
