Illustration for Tennis Article

In my editorial class we each had to chose an article to illustrate (without full knowledge of what the article was about) for our first project. I thought it would be fun to chose one about tennis titled "Risque Business." So here's the final...definitely risque and a lot of fun to illustrate I might add.

Rethink Process: Part 3-the final illustration

Final illustration for grad show. Incase you guys didn't see the other parts of my process (where I explained what this illustration is all about), I had to illustrate a stat about my illustration class for a grad book Sheridan is putting out. My stat was that 93% of our graduating class likes drawing in 2D and 7% of us like drawing in 3D....but, I'm kind of enjoying both!

Illustrator time!

Rethink Process

So we have this grad project to illustrate a stat about our class. My stat was that 93% of us like drawing in 2D and 7% like drawing in 3D. I chose to do the 2D part in collage and pen and the 3D part using photoshop and illustrator. I thought a violin would be a good metaphor to use and the bow next to it to signify the percentages.

So here are a three new pieces from a character assignment for school. We had to illustrate a number of characters from a list so here's my avitar, nonna (italian grandmother), and hipster. The last is a a girl on the metro wasn't for any school assignment but I wanted to try using blue face tones....don't ask me why, I just woke up today wanting to play with colour :)

(From the top down) the first was from a small black and white photo of a man smoking. There was something about his look that was really intriguing so I thought I'd use it as inspiration for a piece. The second is a sketch of my mom. One great thing about holidays at my parent's place is that there are always people around to doodle. I also had some fun with the baboon image, i just had to draw him when I saw's the super intense eyes....a little creepy. The last image is more narrative depicting the tortoise and the hare in Aesop's fable. I like how the sketch turned out so a final piece is in the making.

And a belated happy holidays to everyone following!
