Here we go,
week 1: the paper market (stationery, greeting cards, etc)
The assignment was to create a holiday card based on the theme gingerbread houses.
I really enjoyed working on this piece and felt very comfortable completing it in clay.
week 2: baby apparel market
The assignment was to create a collection based on a pirate theme, suitable for baby
I loved this one too….my joy is definitely creating images for kids and the young-at-heart. The icons were rendered in copic marker, watercolor, & pastel pencil and arranged and composed in PS.
week 3: the scrapbook market
The assignment was to create a set of icons with the theme "vintage correspondence"
As you can see, I deviated from the theme (the mini on this one was to draw vintage ink bottles and I just couldn't get fired up about it…and was totally pressed for time as my son was home form the Marines for the week)….anyhow, as it was Easter, I went for a "vintage Easter" feel….copics & microns, then composed in PS
week 4: editorial illustration
Assignment was to illustrate a map of our home town.
So a total labor-of-love with this one. I went with clay relief, and had a blast putting it together, aimed for a folk art feel with the colors and icon as both represent my town. 17+ hours of sculpting and composing left little time for photography. I would like to reshoot this one at some point. Here are some details.
week 5: party paper market (paper plates, etc. suitable for holidays, birthdays, celebrations)
Assignment was to create a plate, napkin, and cup set influenced by Bavarian folk art.
Intended for a child's birthday, painted with acrylics and composed in PS. Enjoyed working on this piece….fun colors and subject matter. Lilla chose this piece along with a classmates' to illustrate pleasing color palette…it was nice to get an acknowledgment in the last week of the course!
