Erin is a missionary who works at McMaster University. She hired me to create a banner for her newsletters both digital and paper. She wanted a minimalist representation of one of the more recognizable buildings on campus, University Hall. It was challenging for me to capture the essence of the building and yet keep it minimalist. Eventually I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t necessary to have all the elements present or even depicted according to how they would appear in a photograph but that I should create the illustration according to what was most visually pleasing. Once I allowed myself some artistic license the drawing came together smoothly.
