Project Description

Share your sketch or finished illustration!

Create an illustration based on the example article, or apply Emiliano’s process to a project of your own. Whether you’re choosing between sketches or polishing your final piece, we’d love to see your progress! 

As you work, consider the questions Emiliano posed in class:

  • Who do you want to become as a designer? How will this piece help you get there?
  • If you had to sum up the message of your illustration in a single sentence, what would it be? 
  • Once you’re finished, add or subtract one element from your piece. What’s the impact?
  • Share an option you decided not to go with. Why didn't it work for you?

Wherever you are in your process, share your questions, insights, and ideas in the project space. We can't wait to see inside your creative process!
