these are my illustrations for this project for week 2. There will be 4 more due next week for final presentation of this direction, so I’ll post them when I am done…but in the meantime have a little looksy at the current issue.
illustration work for 60’s mod/pop art inspired swimwear. We were given creative license with these illustrations (YAY!) so I was able to morph my figures a bit and stylize them more than usual. I think it really adds to the overall effect of the drawing and creates a certain mood. These are my worked out figures on sandwich paper, and my inspiration. The swimsuits will have bold color blocking and merimekko inspired floral applique. I’m illustrating on the chartreuse Canson paper that is shown with all of my marker tests. It’s due Wed along with an additional 11×14 illustration and 2 croquis…2 one-piece, 2 bikinis.
color test on Canson
figures inspire/modified from audrey kawasaki paintings.
