Project Description

ASSIGNMENT

Your project for this course is to illustrate a commercial ”trend collage”, a curated collection of products surrounding a theme, a trend, a color or just your favorite picks, just as they do in glossy magazines, by using the techniques and effects you have learned in class.

I have designed the class project and the exercises in this course so that the illustrations you create can be used for other purposes outside of this class - for example to include in an illustration portfolio or use for art prints, stationery and other products.


DELIVERABLES

Create a project in the project section of this class and a completed project should include the following:

  • A short introduction, we’d love to get to know you :-)

  • The final trend collage of you colored illustrations

Your can also include images of the products you want to include in your collage and the individual illustrations you create from them (optional).
