BEFORE + AFTER: Azores Bullfinch

Hello!


I'm just restarting in illustration so I don't feel a 'strong' technique or style, neither a rich concept approach. I only know that we (me and my partner) are building a brand with a proposal: telling stories about natural history and ethnography from the places where we pass by. Therefore this course fits like a glove in my needs to improve and evolve _ Thanks Roman Muradov for your time and sharing!


BRAINSTORMING


Since forever, scribbles and ramblings are pretty useful and fun exercises where I can loose myself. Instead of getting lost, I choose to keep it simple by selecting 2 of the given words and, after that, imagine a concept that fits to our brand themes. I came up with multiple ideas and here are the 3 selected options of word pairs and their illustrated concepts:

  2. BEFORE + AFTER: Azores Bullfinch

  3. EFFACE + CUP: Azores Tea Culture
    http://www.gorreanatea.com/tea-culture/azores-tea-culture.html


After analysing the stories and doing some sketching I choose the 2nd, "BEFORE + AFTER: Azores Bullfinch", because:

  • Optimistically thinking, maybe It will help to save lives in a middle/ short time;

  • I feelt it was the one that I could make a bigger mind change impact, enrolling with local authorities, associations and general population;

  • It supports not only a local cause but a cause witch is involved in a world concerning issue - The Lost of Biodiversity;

  • It points to Darwin's theory of evolution, that has visited the Azorean Islands, giving some history perspective.
