I’ve gone for another quick-fire challenge, this time it’s an illustration for a book called ‘101 things you need to try’. The aim of the book is to have a range of diverse illustrations of some interesting hobbies or things you generally enjoy doing that other people may not have tried.
One of my favourite hobbies, that many others may not have tried, is sailing. For this illustration I wanted to convey a sense of what sailing feels like from a first-person perspective.
Not gonna lie, I overshot the completion time a bit here, the illustration ended up being trickier than I originally conceived. The breaking waves were a last-minute addition, but I feel they really bring this piece to life.
