The second piece in a three-part series, re-imagining London with a selection of the city's most iconic monuments and buildings.

Whenever I've delved into the ideas of re-imagining London and its architecture, I have always been attracted to the idea of drawing the Royal Albert Hall, but it felt like too much of an obvious choice, especially alongside some of the others I had planned at the time.

But during my research of the Royal Albert Hall, the Albert Mansions that surround it felt like a better fit, as they toe similar architectural lines as the Royal Albert Hall and the idea of drawing them alongside another icon got me excited! 

I decided that the icon that would accompany the Albert Mansions was the Tower of London. Taking the literal term 'Tower' from it's name and have it towering over the Albert Mansions. Despite its gruesome history, it has a certain charm to it, from the Beefeaters that call it home or the fact that it houses some of the Crown Jewels. It still holds the spirit of old London and is a visual reminder to tourists and visitors of the city, just how far London has come in terms of construction and architecture.
