In this issues column David Whitley reassess his attitude towards
safety on the road, brought about by an encounter with a snake while
hiking through the Namadgi National Park in Canberra. The giant
snake is coiled around David and robbing him of his valuables.
The lesson here is when travelling you should have in place 
insurance, security checks and take precautions on the road.

Charging My Electric Car

Freddy Boo illustration Electric car charging

Electric cars for city driving is good for the environment and the 
health of the city. London is encouraging drivers to switch to this 
friendly mode of transport and is increasing the number of charging 
points around the capital. I created this simple, lighthearted 
illustration showing a small city car on charge.

The Merry River

The Serco Prize for Illustration 2011 The Merry River

My image has been selected for the Serco, London Transport 
Museum and Association of Illustrators The River Thames 
Competition. An exhibition of the top 50 entries will be shown 
at the London Transport Museum and winners announced at the 
private view evening in May.

The illustration is based from my observations and sketches made 

on my many walks along the river. The central focus is the iconic 
London Transport logo which forms the River Thames. On and 
surrounding the river I've portrayed aspects of London's varied life 
to create an energetic and humorous poster. The image is far the most 
detailed I've created. I stayed true to my initial sketch, but I was adding 
new elements and rearranging them an hour before the entry deadline.
I did have lots fun creating this illustration.
