Head in the clouds

Head in the clouds - student project

 

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 spots  by the illustrator Tom Froese. I highly recommend you check it out if you haven't yet, especially in your are interested in editorial illustration =).

(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..
