3 illustrations completed of the eventual set of 5 for the Genius Loci brief set at uni. My chosen place was Brighton Pier, where I focused upon the arcade and coin machines.
The set is supposed to be an abstract take on the way people are suckered in to 'small time' gambling and how they're throwing their money way into these machines without any decent return. Players are deceived into thinking they could win the big prize, if they just put one more coin in.
I wanted to show this repetitive nature within the compositions and capture the essence of cogs in the machines twisting and turning, consuming all your money.
