These are my three ideas for the "Flower Power Blooms in the Lab" article, please let me know what you think, which you would choose and any tweaks you think I need to make. Many thanks :)
I asked my "art director" (read: boyfriend) to give me feedback on these and he liked the one of the boy reading most. He said that he liked the inclusion of a person to add the human element. He wasn't sure on the layout though and said the window was confusing visually - so I've tried to resolve these points in my final illustration further down.
The final illustration in situ:
Final illustration created with a combination of gouache and procreate/photoshop.
I really enjoyed this class! Think I'll come back to it another time to give the US Economy article a go.
