Invisible Cities - Thumbnails 90-104

Invisible Cities - Thumbnails - Adobe Photoshop CC

90 - 104 - Anastasia

A series of thumbnails based on abstracts from Calvino's Invisible Cities, these thumbnails depict the city of Despina. A city pitched between the desert and the sea where the eye is decieved into thinking that a paradise awaits on either side.

The first 8 thumbnails were simple 1-5 minute works whereas the last 8 works took longer. These thumbnails depict warm colours to help evoke the supposed paradise the seemingly awaits each party as the look across the horizion. I was particularly interested in showing the crates full of valuable items, they gave the possbility of using bright and nice colours.
