Magnet Men In the City...

I have started experimenting with the idea of the magnet men infiltrating every day life, and transforming things from our world to look like them- (their sketchy, black, brown and white style).

I have drawn things from around Manchester in the style of the magnet men in connection with this idea.

Some examples:

Magnet Men Continued...

I have decided on a Photoshop collage approach for this project as I think it is one of my stronger ways of working and I need to have the work done quickly so don't want to have to start again if a new technique goes wrong.

Before moving onto Photoshop I have made a series of images (sketches and collage) in my sketchbook which I will then use to create 3 final images on Photoshop.

Magnet Men...

I am struggling to think of an idea for my next project, so, after being advised to in a tutorial, I have looked through my general doodles and sketches and have decided to try and develop a project around some little men that I had doodled a while ago, and which popped up a few times.

These characters remind me of the half blue, half red magnets used in science classes at school, so I have dubbed them 'Magnet Men'.
