This one of a series of illustrations created for St John Ambulance to help with fire safety awareness. The idea is to identify all of the potential hazards within each scene. It's created using vector illustration with Adobe Illustrator, which proves handy should the client want to make amendments because you can just select an object and move it - possible with layers in a pixel-based illustration package such as Photoshop, but potentially cumbersome with the amount of layers required. All of the series have been created as one-point perspective illustrations which was an enjoyable departure from the looser cartooning I'm doing day-to-day. I needed a suitable reference for the two hoodlums with the fire extinguisher, so got my boys to pose - much to their delight- although they were concerned if they'd get into trouble!
