St James park line art

As a fan of Newcastle United I wanted to make a piece of artwork simple, striking and (I think stylish)  😉 Drawn accurately to scale and at the correct compass orientation, this artwork shows St James’ Park from above (without the usual grey clouds). Simplified line art similar to architectural an architectural plan of the stadium.I would love to be a regular attendee to this amazing stadium but money and time seem to conspire against this.

Artwork was created as vector line art by myself using Adobe Illustrator so can be scalable to print in detail at any size.

Hope you like my St James Park Vector line art. I may create some more artworks of some of the more famous or interestingly designed stadiums from around the world. If I do I will make them available to purchase from my website monowaveart.co.uk

Typographic Map of Newcastle Upon Tyne by Alex Patterson

I created this typographic map of my home city, Newcastle Upon Tyne as a personal project to go in my studio. I’ve lived in Newcastle area all my life yet never really took notice of the actual street names.
Weirdly it was quite enjoyable creating this map, but I’m not keen on creating any similar pieces (doesn’t mean that I won’t though).

Newcastle Upon Tyne Pantone Art

Angel of the North Pantone art by Alex Patterson
Angel of the North Pantone art by Alex Patterson

Art by myself, depicting some landmarks in and around my home city of Newcastle Upon Tyne. All painstakingly created from Pantone style colour swatches. Each image is constructed as a 40×40 square grid comprising of 1600 individual swatches. Each swatch is the average colour of the particular region of the image. Looking closely and all you will see is a series of coloured square Pantone swatches; Take a few steps back and the stunning landmarks are revealed.

The Angel of the North divides the local residents. Some love it as an icon of the nort east, while others see it as an unsightly blot on the landscape. Personally I like it.

Tyne Bridge Pantone art by Alex Patterson

The bridges over the Tyne are iconic, stunning, pictoresque and well worth a visit. The above image is the view from the Gateshead side of the High Level bridge. You can make out the beautiful shape of the Tyne bridge as well as its bright red neighbour, the Swing Bridge.

It’s a shame that permission cannot be gained to continue the stands around the whole stadium to create a 100,000 seated mega stadium.

Other Pantone artworks I’ve created so far: Comic, Spiderman, Starwars pantatooine.
