I love this rainy taxi rank, there’s a subtle nod to Miroslav Sasek and earlier Charley Harper there too. Lovely work.

    Thank you for sharing!
    I have been drawing vectors for some time now and I have been doing them without the outlines. However, I feel that my drawings lack a certain depth to it. I love how he adds textures to give more layers to the illustration and the use of lines at the right points. Really something neat for me to incorporate in my future drawings.

      Great to share things I find inspiring and hear that others do too, makes it all the more worthwhile. Thanks for the comment Rusty, good luck developing your ideas.
