With the London Olympics starting tomorrow, let’s take a look at that fair city. Lucinda Rogers is an illustrator who’s been documenting the East End of London for a number of years. She creates each drawing on site in a single session, often working on tinted paper and using color sparingly, focusing instead on bold strokes that capture the dynamic energy of an area in transition.
