GigRower commissioned me to illustrate their 2015 Gigrower Calendar. I had to include the entire season’s gig rowing regattas and races and then pick a few from each month to illustrate. The tricky part of this project was working out the overall design, making sure all the events fitted in and could still be readable. Visit www.GigRower.co.uk to buy. I really enjoyed drawing the iconic landmarks of each place and this has inspired me to draw more buildings and monuments.
