Withering City 1/3

This is a mini project I made about two and a half years ago... It contains 3 illustrations (each with at least one variation of the original) showing different areas of Liverpool. The reason behind the project was to highlight the less known, slowly deteriorating parts of the city whilst the city centre was rapidly being modified and  built up as part of the 2008 Capital of Culture scheme.

It was great seeing plans for new spectacular buildings, but the reality soon hit you in the face when, just around the corner or across the street, you were greeted by a crumbling house, a peeling row of doors or an angry looking reel of barbed wire strung across a decaying wall.
