A rethink into my ideas

I know i had a clear initial idea into how i was going to produce the illustration style and what i was going to include in the mural, however that has now changed after i found an image i really liked and spoke about the brief with my boyfriend.

Firstly this is the image that changed all my thinking 

I found this image by typing in London Illustrations into Google, this piece of art is produce by famous illustrator Petra Stefankova, who specialises in flat 2D vectors. 

Another example of Petra Stefankova work

I feel it would fit in with Jon Burgerman's style ( who i was originally going to be influenced by), because it's quirky and vibrant. These aspects then fit in with YO! sushi as a whole because of the target audience it is aimed at. I will do a similar style to Petra Stefankova and Jon Burgerman mixed together, but make it my own. 

This could easily work for the YO! sushi company, as it combines both London and Toyko together in this illustration. I feel a little under pressure know that i have seen this, to make my own a lot better.
This illustration has also made me feel confident in making my mural vector based now, because after analysing how this illustration is put together most of it is just simple shapes.
I will play around with vector styles as i have never done anything with vectors in it, i'm taking a risk but hopefully it will work.

The next part of my idea change was after talking about my ideas to my boyfriend and he suggested that it might work well if i kept the YO! sushi conveyor belt running through the mural as the River Thames, but then include people eating sushi at the major landmarks around London. As if they had collected there plates of the conveyor belt.

I loved this idea and decided to play around with how i could use this to my advantage.
I didn't want the same image at all the different landmarks, i wanted to relate the action of the person with the sushi, to the landmark.
