A Summary of Illustration Application Module

During the Illustration Application module I have produced 6 illustrations for varying medias and using varying mediums. I tried to keep in mind both the tone and themes of the articles in question to create both an interesting and, where applicable, contemporary illustration that highlighted a key section of the articles text.

Book Cover: The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4

The final cover for this book hasn't changed much from the previous design however I have changed the drawing of Adrian to give it more "action" and to tie into the plot a bit more; with him dealing with the notion of love.

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.
