The Jim Field 'The Tourist' poster captures the predictable habits of travellers. The London-based illustrator was inspired to create these drawings after a trip to Australia. Field found himself fascinated by the ways of tourists as he puts it on his website, "going about their 'touristy' ways, they started to look uniform to me -- dressed in their chinos, silly hats and armed with digital cameras."

So, Field began photographing tourists and then transformed his captures into this poster drawing. This interesting perspective, took the camera away from the tourist and exhibited them as the focus.

To him, the tourists began to appear to have uniform in their predictable habits. This poster depicts the travellers in their unnatural yet natural habitat.
