Our first task for Illustration was to create drawings relative to 26 words for example: Ratio, Scale, Align.
we were asked first to create 10 sketches of the first 10 words, I chose the colour scheme of clack white and turquoise.
I was unable to create virtual Versions of my illustrations as I did not have access to a laptop or computer, instead I created a series of 24 paintings in the same colour scheme as my previous quick sketches.
I am happy with my outcome and through to my process of creating them I decided to incorporate a colour scheme into my work in the future as I think it ties the work together and gives it a nicer overall look. The project also changed my perception of what illustration was.
to investigate illustration as a career and a course I did some research into illustrators
we also had to create a number of cutout, paper versions of our illustrations. I continued my colour scheme and used scraps of old, recycled paper to reduce my waste in my work.
I also watched the offset archive video talks in Dublin in 2019 , I chose illustrator ‘Victo Ngai’.
