Alva Skog
On Top of the World


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
Inspired by a solo trip to NY, I made this personal project, On top of the World. Through the towering skyscrapers, let the giant characters pick you up and guide you with a welcoming hand. No hustle and bustle here, these characters happily take up space with a building sense of excitement as they hop, skip and jump without restriction.

How was the illustration used:
The intention of the project was to explore the combination of digital illustration and photography and to show my illustration work in a different way. I shared it on my website, instagram and Jelly london newsletter.

How did you make this work:
Digital illustration on photographs I took with my Iphone.
