I enjoy creating images that contain a lot of detail. In terms of subject matter, cameras are a current favorite, with a plethora of little buttons, switches, levers and dials. As cameras in the digital age become increasingly sleek, streamlined and monochrome in design, here is a visual celebration of vintage models from days gone by, created using graphite.
Christine Berrie gained a First Class BA (Hons) from Glasgow School of Art before heading to the Royal College of Art in London, where she graduated with an MA in Illustration in 2002. Christine's work has been featured in several exhibitions, including a solo show at the Pentagram Gallery in London, where she exhibited over 40 drawings. Other exhibited works include 60 drawings and a large-scale mural for Designersblock:Illustrate, as well as regular contributions to the prestigious RCA Secret Show in London. Currently, everyday scenarios and objects are Christine's favored subject matter, and she has long had an interest in creating colorful, detailed imagery with a hand-rendered approach. The results display Christine's aim to invest even the most mundane objects with personality. Christine's drawings have appeared in several publications, including Design Week, Communication Arts, Creative Review and Varoom. Her work can also be seen in Hand to Eye and The Picture Book, both published by Laurence King. Clients include Microsoft, Merrell, the New York Times, New Scientist, Wallpaper, Time Out, the Guardian, Dwell, Nature and Esquire.
