I created this bespoke artwork commemorating 5,000 articles at aBlogtoWatch. Everyone involved clearly has a passion for what they do, and for me to be able to help celebrate that with a passion of my own was incredibly exciting. The piece itself is inspired by the entire team behind the site, working much like a finely finished movement in keeping things running smoothly and the articles flowing. From there, it seemed fitting for the artwork to be an elegant and refined movement in my photorealistic graphite style, bespoke to aBlogtoWatch with ‘engravings’ suited to the occasion and hidden ‘Easter eggs’ such as a camera and a computer screen hidden as weights on the balance wheel.
