Description

⭐️ ⭐️

'Shoreditch Church and The City from Hoxton Station' was my entry into the 2012 Serco Prize for Illustration competition, run jointly by the Association of Illustrators and the London Transport Museum. It was one of 50 shortlisted entries that were exhibited at the Museum between 13th November and 10th December 2012.

The competition's theme was 'Secret London' and entrants were encouraged to submit an artwork that shows a hidden or little known aspect to the city, whilst also relating to London's transport network in some way. My take on this theme is the view to be seen from train windows when travelling along viaducts, when passengers are able to see into private dwellings, roof gardens and balconies and thus briefly become voyeurs. Other 'secret' elements to my image include the small businesses located in the brick arches beneath the viaduct.

The view is taken from the platforms of Hoxton Overground Station where trains travel high above the streets and rooftops along an extended viaduct through Shoreditch and where the skyscrapers of the City of London, including the Broadgate Tower, the Gherkin, NatWest Tower and Heron Tower, dominate the skyline to the south.

The image was developed from a carefully composed pencil drawing, itself derived from a photograph taken on location, and was coloured digitally using a Wacom Bamboo tablet.

This print is fabulous and extremely detailed! It was the perfect present for my partner who loves skyscraper architecture. The shop owner was extremely helpful in ensuring it arrived on my desired date. My partner loved the present and spent hours figuring out which tower was which. Thank you so much Mike Hall!

Thank you for such a great print of Alexandra Palace, it was just as I hoped it would be. Great packaging too. We're looking forward to getting it framed and up on display in our new home in Leeds. I lovely reminder of once living in Muswell Hill and spending summer days at Ally Pally!

I just received my map of Angel (London N1), and it's beautiful! I can't wait to hang it on my wall to remind me of the amazing first trip I had to my newly adopted 2nd home. The detail is great, and it even includes drawings of the two churches on the street where I stayed. Thanks, Mike!
