The Shard, London
Limited edition architectural illustration of the iconic Shard in London.
Hand-drawn by architect Robert Kann using Faber-Castell Indian ink pens, over a period of over 15 hours, the illustration is then shaded and digitally coloured. The artwork is printed on 300gsm textured parchment to give an additional element of quality and a truly unique appearance.
To produce the 'coloured' series, a layer of hand-drawn lines is overlayed on a block colour to enhance the contrast with the building illustration.

MEET THE ARTIST ROBERT KANN
My name is Robert Kann, but please call me Bob. I am a fully qualified architect, and an enthusiastic illustrator. I live and work in the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath; the city I've called home for the past 7 years, and the source of inspiration for a lot of my work.
I started Pitch26 in September 2013 in order to pursue a life of personal and creative freedom; I take immense pleasure in meeting interesting and varied people, and it is an honour that some of you buy into my style, and allow my creations to grace your walls and mantelpieces.
