Busy City โ€“ On Your Bike x Nolias Gallery

Update April 2016 โ€“ Good news, Busy City โ€“ On Your Bike is now available on society6! ยป Busy City โ€“ย On Your Bike on Society6


Recently, I have been asked to exhibit a few pieces of work at Nolias Gallery in Central London. And thought it a perfect time to take the ‘Busy City’ series to the next level.
Before automobiles and engines, one of the main modes of transport was the bicycle. With the exhibition theme of ‘On Your Bike’, a special edition of ‘Busy City’ was created as a tribute to generations past, who relied on bicycles as a vital tool in connecting trade, goods and people to allow cities to be built and prosper.

‘Busy City โ€“ On Your Bike’ is the largest from the series to date, and, as all ‘Busy City’ illustrations are, are all hand drawn. The full version can be seen in person at Nolias Gallery, 60 Suffolk Street, London, until 28th October. (Nearest tube: Southwark)

Prints will be available at a later date. In the meantime, the ‘Busy City’ series is available in art prints, laptop skins and even travel mugs now! Get them at my society6 shop ยป society6.com/scarlettfu

Busy City โ€“ Behind The Scenes

I’ve had many lovely folk approach me when creating Busy City in my sketchbook whilst travelling on the bus, tube, train, or sitting in cafรฉs…you name it. And the two most common questions that I get are:

“How long do these take you to do?”

“Where do you get the inspiration from?”

To be honest, I get my inspiration from anywhere and everywhere. Buildings around us are full of little details which take influence from some other place, and so on.

With the help of my trusty camera, I’ve recorded a timelapse. The illustration, in real time, took just over an hour to complete. 

The Busy City series is available on Society6, as framed prints, cushions and much more.
