About This Class

6e3f8cd4

In this class I’m going to take you through the process when converting some of my TDAC illustrated recipes into a what are called small ‘groups’ ready for my art licensing portfolio. I’ll show you my considerations and thought process for this transition. They will include my personal insights for a placement graphic or print, various patterns and co-ordinates within a small co-hesive group or collection. I’ll consider :palette, scales, and contrasts working harmoniously within the group.

I will use existing food imagary to explain and outline the basic principles for gathering ideas or concepts. And pulling them into a unified theme for the group, so you can still apply  the methodolgy to whatever subject matter or icons. What follows is my  personal approach for making these recipes into art that would be sent to a potentail client.

Other artists and designers would most likely approach it in their own manner. What I say is NOT perscriptive, its just a general guide of points to be mindful of, rather then stirctly adhered to. I have attended art licensing trade shows with my work and the information I present here is based on feedback I recieved about how clients view work of this nature based on their needs.

There are many art licensing markets out there that require food as a subject matter, from Winter Hoilday to General birthday. For more information about art licensing and a run down of the subject matter that is most sought after, please refer to Ronnie Walter’s Skillshare class below.

PLEASE NOTE although I will be showing examples of repeat patterns, this is not a class about how to create technical repeats. Please see my PS pattern class

Nor is this class about how to illustrate food. See my other food classes below
