I was a late sign up, so I'm rather late to submitting my work.
Here is a brief overview of my project so far.
I have no experience with Illustrator and I'm also not really someone that sketches regularly, more like doodles. I'm very interested in the process of coming up with ideas, so I have tried to approach this project with that in mind.
Also, I sketched everything on A3, but our at home scanner is only for A4. (Oops!) so quite a bit got cut off, but this gives you an idea on my progress.
Firstly, I wrote out a list of words for both 'Quiet' and 'Loud', and then I mind mapped the list to try find new connections and possible ideas. I also sketched a few out, but have only included my final below.
Quiet: Pindrop, moment, soft, breeze, ocean, dark, muted, deaf, marshmallow in ears, shhh!, library, study, cat sleeping, nap, peace, eery, stillness, world in a microscope, soft, pastel, solitude, snow falling, peace, soundproof, meditation, a quiet word
Loud: Heels on tiles, amplifier, music, yelling, car horn, alarms, bright, clashing colours, busy roads, bee, a mosquito in the dark.
Mindmap (sorry it's cut off, but most of the same words are above):
Out of all those ideas, my favourites are:
Loud, my two favourites are:
I set myself a colour restriction of blues and pinks.
Below is one of my sketches. I hope to work on more, but it depends on time constraints. I'm halfway through illustrating this, so will update this project soon.
