Intro

In this masterclass, London-based David Popov will take you through the process he used when creating his ‘Round the World’ series of graphic artworks. 

“I initiated this project because I wanted to have something that only I would have to remember my travels by,” explains David, “not just the photos that everyone has of Paris such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Moulin Rouge.” Instead, he produced more abstract pieces based upon the patterns and textures of the city’s architecture.

Here David will be focusing on how he went about creating his composition in Illustrator using colour and pattern swatches. He will also discuss the influences and experiences that informed the patterns and colours of the artwork’s final design.
