David McLeod creates textural CGI illustration working with a vibrant colour palet exploration of texture and form. A few words by David on designing his piece ‘Together’: ‘I set out to create something that felt spontaneous and positive with the piece, combining forms of different characteristics with one another in ways that create a kind of visual dialogue between neighboring elements. I was also very interested in the process of translating a digital design into a physical piece of embroidery. Working in flat colour posed a nice challenge as my work usually relies on rendering with texture and shading. I wanted to see how the dimensionality and implied movement in this piece could be communicated in as minimalistic a way as possible.’
