Week 4: April 23rd 10:00am – 1:00pm (PST)
Instructor: Richard Anderson
Lecture/Demonstration: Illustration & Design. Richard will demonstrate his process of combining these two disciplines to create
more dynamic Illustrations.
Assignment: Create 5 book cover compositions that incorporate strong graphic design elements.
I had a particularily hard time grasping the methods we were shown in Richard's tutorial, My mind fought the use of previously created content and photos. As you will see though, the difference in quality is astounding between what my first few attempts and the final image I created are. There are so many photos of so many different places and things in the last piece it boggles my mind to see where I ended up. The colours and blending between all those photos is what lends a hand to creating that imaginative spark that latches on to a specific segment of that image. then the painting begins, taking colours, embellishing shapes and creating an image that had absolutely NOTHING to do with its individual pieces that made it come to life.
