This is one of my favorite types of drawings. The concept is to put a lot of simple things together in the drawing to create what appears to be a complex overall piece. The important part is creating an appealing, balanced composition from the elements.
In this one I was doing a cartoon of someone that has traveled a lot. I received a list of many of the places she had been and then picked several to draw. I added some elements of nature since I was told she loves that part of traveling. The result is below – a unique custom-made gift chronicling some of the many places she has been.
