Thank you to the teacher for this really fun class and thank you all for sharing your work !
For this project I chose to illustrate the idiom "Head in the clouds" as it is one I can strongly relate to.
The creative process (drawing part) I used is the one I learnt from another great class : Sweet spotsby the illustrator Tom Froese. I highly recommend you check it out if you haven't yet, especially in your are interested in editorial illustration =).
List of words:
Absent minded, dream/dreamer, creative, space, other dimension, imagination, not grounded, floating balloon, hot air balloon, fantasy world, flying brain, dreaming standing up, moony/moon, spaceship/rocket, being in your own head, kite, kids
(Observational drawing from photos)
(Refined sketch + coloured version)
I picked the illustration that placed the emphasis on the idea of dream, exploration and creativity. I haven't included any text as it is not something I am familiar with..
