What is a line?... My self written brief and action plan...

Brief Title: Skyline through line


Produce a body of work that visually investigates line drawn skylines from various places.


Look and experiment with a range of media. Look at skylines from cities and less built up areas.

Target audience

Architect enthusiasts and travellers

Tone of voice

Informative and formal


Tracing photographs with flat lines, and experimenting with textured media appropriate to content. Experiment with linking line drawings together to show the difference in scale in different cities and places and make it visually engaging.

Mandatory requirements

Blogging, notebooks, sketchbooks, design sheets and photography.


A set of line drawings exploring size, scale, formation and content of skylines.

Studio deadline
