Illustration for Cottage Life Magazine
Edward McGowan is an Edinburgh based illustrator with a keen eye for bright colors and rough textures.
This particular illustration, created for Cottage Life Magazine, features a white house surrounded by tall cone shaped clusters of trees and various patches of green. The composition draws one’s eye to the tiny house and skinny path, which connects the earth to the sea. The textures within this piece are coarse, and the illustration itself is reminiscent of those found in my old Social Studies books from elementary school.
