If you really want to understand the thought process of artists, have a group of them separately draw a similar theme and then compare what they come up with. This is just what three talented illustrators did in Dublin resulting in a fascinating series of time-lapse videos capturing their individual artistic processes.
The illustrations, by Steve McCarthy, Fuchsia Macaree, and Steve Simpson, capture important landmarks known by every Dubliner as seen from a common vantage point – the rooftops of the historic city. Illustrated in vastly different styles, the artists captured the Dublin Port; from the Portview House, Old Dublin; from the Guinness Storehouse, and the Grand Canal Dock; from the Marker Hotel.
