The London Olympics Begins ... with Steph Loves to Draw!

Steph Prior is the designer and illustrator behind 'Steph Loves to Draw'. I have been saving her stunning line drawings to share with you today to celebrate the start of the London Olympics 2012.

I think Steph's illustrations beautifully capture the historic landmarks and well known features of London. "I really wanted to highlight what makes London so special, not just for tourists but also for residents, commuters and regular visitors." I love how Steph has combined images that range from Big Ben, the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace to pigeons, fish and chips and bicycles.

Steph lives and works in London, however she says London still manages to surprise her. "Amongst the rich culture, heritage and fascinating history this city has hundreds of new things to offer everyday."

Steph hand draws every detail with great care and passion using a black fine liner pen, adding subtle highlights of blue and red to selected areas. "I find myself influenced by everyday life, nature and culture and love to work in bright colours and detail." 

Have a close look, how many of these places you have visited?
