Thank you for this class, Tom! It was interesting to follow your process and see how you work. There is so much helpful information in your class - I especially appreciated the sections on principles of stylization (simplification is such a challenge) and inspiration vs imitation.
I definitely have a lot to work to do in finding my style, keeping my style consistent and refining final illustrations. And I find myself relying a lot on my reference images - trying to copy them instead of using them for general ideas of position.
My imagined context for my spot illustrations is a brochure or website for a kids' recreational baseball league.
- baseball, glove, bat, players, cleats, gum, scoreboard, popcorn
