Here's a go...I'm definitely not an illustrator. I want to be able to evoke emotions from simpler images such as symbols and icons as I'm a brand designer. But I thought this class would really put me out of my comfort zone and I could learn from another discipline. I personally am drawn to minimalism and simplicity. Perhaps it's too minimal? This is a pencil sketch that was then filtered in photoshop.
