The Hive Worcester- it's the bees knees!

Recently, I was asked to create some promotional illustrations for Worcester's fantastic new library and history centre, 'The Hive'- Europe's first joint University and Public Library, which is set to open on the 2nd of July 2012.

Initially, I created a range of cartoon bee illustrations tying in with the various sections of the centre, such as the library, the archaeology section, and the children's area. Ultimately however, the Council decided to progress with just the one image for the children's area, which I revisited to sharpen up the linework and colours!

Here is the final design:

If you happen to be around Worcester or the surrounding area over the next couple of weeks, look out for The Hive Bee on posters around town! Here's an example:

Good news, everyone! My bee design has been on display today in Redditch Shopping Centre, in the form of large cardboard cutouts! Check them out below:


Also, I have a new clearer photo of the phonebox poster (above), as well as a look at one of the other poster designs currently on display around Worcester:



Let me know in the comments if you've seen any of them out and about!
