Started with brainstorm and getting ideas on paper.
Moved on to thumbnail sketches. I enjoyed just trying to get ideas in the thumbnails. I tried not to over think it. Had many more however selected this page.i narrowed To these final sketches however I did not use the image of my son I scooter because we completed a bottle rocket project and it kept us busy for 3 hours which was great. I decided on this image instead of scooter.
Made some final sketches and used a minimal color palette as suggested which was very useful. I can get out their with color so parameters were great. I added some text to final for cover however not sure about it now. I am new to illustration, I started taking classes about a year ago and I have been really inspired by the work of illustrators. I consider my self a visual artist and I enjoy working in multiple mediums and I primarily engage in abstract work. I am working on the next set spot illustrations.
Here is the second set I completed about What I love about Mexico City.
I included some of my sketches below. I like sketching the ideas in my sketchbook than going digital. I find for my initial idea phase my analog sketchbook works better. Changes and edits are made digitally.
Here some more sketching process. Thanks Tom this was a great assignment
