Typed up notes from 2/10/12 for Illustration project
45 credits – 450 hours
100% portfolio outcome
(Some images appear small, but if you open them in new tabs you can see them at full size)
Good simplicity, strong bold colours, definitely worth looking into.
Reminds me of the Psychogeographical maps I did last year
Work feels kind of preachy rather than an impartial Reportage, but still interesting nevertheless.
I also thought that reportage was more about quick, rough drawings, but obviously it can also be quite stylised/polished too. I suppose it’s just another way of looking at the project.
Little notes and snippets of conversation give this a lot of character as do some of the half-finished drawings
Pixelated digital work has its own charm. Also interesting to have lots of work where you can pin-point the location of on the website.
Did an exhibition based on seeing a guy trip up.Images, animations etc. of him just tripping up again and again (I think there was a dog too?)
Expressive and quick, which is the kind of style I’m leaning towards with this project I think.
Could use watercolours in quick drawings?
I should get an ink pen. The quality of line here is great!
Need to try different line colours
