On the Cover

Final project for the summer Editorial Illustration class:

Create an illustration that would serve as cover art for a magazine.

I chose this article to illustrate: "Visible Man: Ethics in a world without secrets" by Peter Singer

At first I had these 2 ideas:

I personally really liked this one. I would have gone detail crazy!!

But then all the sudden I had a new idea:

I thought..."well, this seems like something I wouldn't do because I hate difficult I should make myself try it"

And here is how it turned out in the end:

But I'm really a New Yorker type of reader and I thought my illustration would look better on their magazine like so:

Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper
10.31 x 13.17 inches
Rapidograph line work + watercolour/gouache paints

And so the summer semester ends! Now for 3 weeks of break:)

Somewhere Only We Know

Summer Illustration Course - Assignment 3

For this project we to go crazy and illustrate something that was inspired by a speech, literary passage poem, or song.
I illustrated my interpretation of the song: "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane, specifically this passage:

“I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?”
