We are fascinated by these intricate, intense and delicate pen and ink drawings, mixing up people, landmarks and transport in a new and dizzying fashion. Laura Jordan’s cityscapes were brought to our attention by @zefrog, who liked them so much he bought one.
A graduate of the London College of Communication, Jordan’s work captures “social, political and architectural movement”. New work, ‘Run Riot Run‘ is a commentary on the student protests, the Royal Wedding and the London riots all in one. Can you spot a Beefeater nicking off with a telly and Boris biking away? Is that a black cab being flung over the gates of Buckingham Palace? Just what is Bride Kate doing on that balcony? While the chaos is captured on CCTV, engineers beneath the surface continue to improve the tube, serenely unaware of what’s kicking off above.
You may need to look at these illustrations larger – in which case visit Laura’s Flickrstream.
