flawed?


For Illustration Friday: flawed?

Years ago I was lucky enough to travel to Angkor Wat in Cambodia. This sketch is one I made of a very famous temple called Ta Prohm. You might recall it was used in the filming of Tomb Raider in 2001. Some consider it flawed because of the huge trees growing out of the ruins. To me it's beautiful because of the way it merges with the jungle around it. Unfortunately my scanner couldn't take in all of the sketch so there are sections missing. But this gives you an idea. Click on the image to see a larger version.

  6. Gorgeous and fab illustration. One of my favourite kid's books ever is of a tree growing through the middle of a little boy's house. For the life of me I can't remember the name of it, something like Toby's Tree, but the melding of building and tree I thought completely fabulous.
