Captains of Industry

I grew up around a heavily industrialised stretch of the North-East coastline that in the mid-century was home to a booming range of industry including, oil refineries, power plants, chemical plants, and our pride and joy: the British Steel mill.

I've decided to use those themes in my illustration as the harsh aesthetic of the mills, plants and refineries is easily simplifified geometrically and is a nice historic nod to what once was. Seeing as I'm going for the vintage Americana feel, I'll also be looking at US parrallels to our UK industry.

Sketching Elements

I sketched common elements in different designs and illustrations I found and tried to cram them all on one page like a crib sheet!
