Antique Clock



An illustration of an antique English clock. I illustrated this little gizmo for the last project of the graphic-techniques course at uni. We were basically supposed to draw a complicated pryl (swedish word for gadget or thing) using Adobe Illustrator's pen tool and gradients only. I probably should have picked something a little less complicated, but I've just always had a thing for antique gizmos :)
Took about 24 hours of work (yeah I know it's far from being done too) at the cost of my sanity haha!

A little happy update, I actually found a Concept Art course (15 points) that I'm applying to next semester at Gotland University. Wish me luck!
Studying at Jönköping this year helped me realize that I'm actually good at Graphic Design, but it also isn't what I want to be doing for the rest of my life. I want to produce things that stir into people's imaginations, putting them inside my work's atmosphere. Not sell them sunscreen or print magazines.

I actually found a lot of models that are similar. Maybe it was a trend or something back in the day!

You can find some of them on google, but here are some for you :)

The large one with flowers is called Leroy of Paris, so I guess it's french :P The other one with the waves (that I based my illustration off of) is English and called English Coalbrookdale. Sadly I couldn't find out what these types of designs are called, but the casings are mainly made of porcelain.
