Project Description

Create a three-piece ode to your hometown!

Choose a thing, place, and person that remind you of home, then illustrate each piece before clustering them together into a complete ode to your hometown. Share sketches, process stills, mistakes, and triumphs along the way — let's see it all. Remember to iterate as you go. Don't just stick with your first idea and move forward, really push yourself to see how far you can take each element and how far you can take your final piece.
