Illustrator and designer Anthony Burrill created this life-size painting of a plane for the offices of design studio Priestman Goode. The two, who have collaborated before, say they have a mutual interest in simple design and technology, both of them producing work which is pared down and pure in its aesthetic, so Burrill seemed a natural choice when Priestman decided to brighten up his studio wall.
“Priestman Goode design aeroplane interiors, amongst lots of other things, so it was a good subject for their office,” says Burrill.
“I worked with scale drawings of the building to develop the design, he continues. “When it came to putting the drawing onto the wall we drew a huge grid (with the aid of a very tall scaffolding tower) and plotted out the drawing by hand using the grid as reference. Then it was all hand painted. It took ages!”
The entire process was filmed and edited down to a minute, you can watch it here:
