Illustration: Old TV

Old TV

I had a day out at the planetarium and science museum the other day. They had a cute little display full of old home appliances. There were various things including fridges, radios, coffee pots and this old TV (right).

I took some photos with my phone and dropped this one into Inkscape. It’s a nice subject for a bit of illustration. It has very simple shapes so I didn’t even try to trace it. I used the shape tools with low opacity and tweaked them. For a more stylized look I deliberately chose not to use a stroke and most fills are solid colour. There are some gradients to emulate lighting but you could easily do without.

This could be part of a larger illustration or used by itself for a logo or icon. Try it out.
