I was genuinely excited to find these wonderful illustrations in my in-box this weekend. Neil Warburton is a designer and artist who has found creative outlets in illustration, photography, sculpture, and painting. This striking series of buildings and balloons grapples with ideas of love. Neil via email:
The series came to fruition after a troubled time I went through a few years back with a relationship, producing the work really helped me by creating something positive from an otherwise negative situation. I had been fascinated by the use of narrative within illustration for a long time and had wanted to use it in some work. The balloons represent love and have drifted into other works I have done since. Combining these with some epic repetitive architecture seemed to give the pieces real depth and a sense of time and space.
