Toddler Training

Editorial Illustration class project #2.
In short: to create an 8 x 10'' illustration for an article that you are interested in - one that moves you.

So I chose to do another health + children related article on how children should be doing (fun) exercises as early on in life as possible to not only promote healthy habits that will combat obesity, but also to promote correct bone and muscle development.
The article can be found here:

Originally I started painting my illustration using acrylics, but due to some time constraints I was running into I re-started and completed the piece using primarily waterproof coloured inks.

Here's the sketch:
And the final piece:



Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper
8 x 10 inches
Rapidograph line work + Koh-i-Noor coloured inks + a little of gouache and watercolours for touch-ups

Happy Monday!!

Subtleties of Light

I was back in the (traditional) darkroom developing and printing B&W photos last week. It was for a photography assignment for one of my classes. In short, we were to focus on how light touches its subjects.
Here are some photos I took and printed:)

Soak up That Sun!

So, now for some illustrations, (nearly) fresh from my Editorial Illustration summer class.

For this assignment we were to create a black and white illustration that would accompany an OP-Ed article from the New York Times. I found this article: "The Sun is the Best Optometrist" to be quite interesting, so that's the one I worked on.

Here's the process:
