Project Description

Creating an art print you can sell from your doodles.

ASSIGNMENT

Create a doodle on a piece of paper and adapt it into an art print. Your goal is to let your pen run wild on the paper in the doodle process and find something beautiful. Then you will refine the lines you love and illustrate them into fine art by coloring in shapes and drawing over lines. You will be surprised at the quality of work that comes out of just a simple doodle.

DELIVERABLE

Upload your final art print. A finished piece includes:

  • Your original doodle
  • Your final art print
