Home movie: Day 8 draws together city work

16.12.2010 Dunhill : Day 8 : Chris Dent

London – To launch its online platform Day 8, menswear brand Dunhill has created a film highlighting the London-based illustrator Chris Dent as he works on a commission for the brand.

In the video Dent captures the four Homes of Alfred Dunhill – in London, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo – in one piece of work. The result is a cityscape drawing that reflects all the Homes including Bourdon House, Prince’s Building and Twin Villas. ‘It’s not just an architectural rendering,’ Dent says in the film. ‘When you look closely, it is handmade and the lines are very raw.’
