This week we have been given the task to create our own composition interpretation of an renaissance painting into a more contemporary manner piece, using inspiration from music/fast food/ clothes/ labels/ imagination. The pieces above were previous paintings I used and digitally manipulated to hold a modern meaning.
The boy made crowns from her leafs
And the tree was happy
Today I have completed a basic drawing of the main character from the book The Giving Tree. I will complete more drawings and produce more digital outcomes, and possibly also do some water colour drawings of this character. I also need to create characters of this boy in other stages in his life
My Illustration of The Boy from the children’s’ book The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree, animation
I will use this children’s story as inspiration for my illustrations this week
Jon Klassen is an illustrator I am particularly interested in due to the simplicity in his final outcomes. Subtle dots and textures create a sense of a floor and pattern to this piece. It is easy to understand considering there is very little detail to the subjects.
This coming week I will Illustrating a book of my choice. I enjoy drawing animals in particular, so I plan to concentrate on animal books when choosing a book to illustrate . And the medias I wish to use are collage, painting, and digital process.
Eric Carle is renowned for his ‘Hungry Caterpillar’ book Illustration, he has also illustrated many other books using the same mixture of medias. These include acrylic painting, collage of tissue paper and various other papers.
This is my final Chilli Festival poster, I begun by creating pencil and linear pen drawing, and afterwards applied colour and texture and tone to another piece of paper in the shape of the previous peppers I had drawn.
I then scanned in my drawings and digitally progressed so the colour and linear drawings became a single image. I researched food festival posters to get an idea as to what composition I was going to use. I found the poster below of a food and wine festival, and found the colours, text and composition appealing, therefore I used this poster as my main inspiration.
