Quiet Wishes

Quiet Wishes - student project


I haven't been able to devote the time I had wanted to for this class.  I've been keeping up with the lectures as best as I can but haven't had much time to actually work on my project.  I am hoping to be able to get it in illustrator with some color by the end of the weekend.  Then I will add texture and pattern on my own time after the class has ended.  We'll see how far I can get!


I reall wanted to do "Loud" - it seemed like it would be more fun when playing with textures and patterns but "Quiet" just resonates with me more.  I am naturally a quiet person and enjoy quiet solitude.  I started sketches with of quiet places - imagery of where I feel quiet and relaxed but they just weren't working for me.

I decided to go with an illustration of my daughter blowing a dandelion - or "wishies" as we call them.  There is something serene about when she makes the wish and we quietly watch the seeds blow away.
