Book cover: To Kill A Mocking Bird

As I was coming up with some initial ideas, I originally focused a lot on birds however after a group crit I decided to focus more on one of the first ideas I came up with; the two faces and the noose... As I began thinking the idea of birds was slightly overused, and the … Continue reading Book cover: To Kill A Mocking Bird

Editorial Illustration and Art Directing: “Did Humans kill off the Hobbits?”

As the article was focused on the struggle of H. Floresiensis against the taller, and eventually victorious H. Sapiens, I decided to direct my chosen idea towards this more. Although it is potentially unclear in the final images, I have given the 2 cavemen black eyes, with the intention of a hidden narrative of they … Continue reading Editorial Illustration and Art Directing: “Did Humans kill off the Hobbits?”

Editorial Illustration and Art Direction: “Did Humans Kill off the Hobbits?”

I found the task of Illustrating this article rather challenging, and perhaps not in a good way. I feel this was mainly due to the informal and confusing nature of the article, coupled with its somewhat tedious length. It took a fair few reads in order to actually find its USP.

The tone of the article suggested to me that the image should in some way show how "economics" is putting pressure on the Earth and if something isn't done then it could … Continue reading Editorial Illustration:”Just so much, and no more”

Editorial Illustration: Brief from N Stevenson

Before deciding on the final colour scheme I ran some tests with a variation on the main body red. As I used a dark grey underneath the image, the body had to be opaque; this created a slightly pinker colour that although contrasts well against the darker reds of the feathers, didn't have the effect … Continue reading Editorial Illustration: Brief from N Stevenson

Editorial Illustration and Art Directing

In my capacity as art director I chose this article for my partner, Dan. I chose this as I know that he like to draw from life and although there is an option for this I think it will challenge him to create something possibly a little bit different to his normal repetoir. I am hoping … Continue reading Editorial Illustration and Art Directing
