Word on the Street

Illustration

If you have read Time Out London more than once, you will be familiar with the weekly funny section "Word on the Street". A collection of bizarre sentences overheard in and around London.

Word on the Street section within the Time Out magazine.

Sketching the funny

Needless to say, I found some of them hilarious and my mind raced at what they could look like if the sentences were illustrated. So I went ahead and drew a few.

Sketch for Word on the Street phrase, there's fucking halloumi everywhere.
Final illustration for the phrase "I'm like medusa, people take one look at me and turn gay".
Final illustration for the phrase "You look like a Twix".

there's more to come!

More than an illustration

I have a few more up my sketchbook that I will be illustrating very soon and intend on taking them further than an illustration. Watch this space.
