Also, the Illustration show happened and it became pretty big this year. I was even excited and surprised where I was place in the gallery. This year, a lot of interesting, creepy, experimental and icon work came out of this show and I'm excited for the next. I do say that I do miss the Shakespeare theme show, but what was different about this gallery was there was a lot more unique interpretation that never really copied each other. I believe I was only person that did a cross word concept, which is pretty cool to me. I got a lot of praise and support doing the illustration, and I thank you all for that.
Okay, so illustrations project we have are pretty fun this time. For Illustrating fiction, we have to create two- four illustration from the classical short story "Rikki Tikki Tavi" (the offspring to the Jungle Book). Mainly, designing two print plate illustration and two spot illustrations, which are small illustrations that are arranged around text space. Mainly it fun to down animals characters, elaborating or characterizing them based on the story text.
Then for Illustrations IV, the assignment is actually deja vu, if you look at my old post of Digital Homework . Create an illustrated spread for a book, of any recipes. Being me, I choose Fish Tacos made of salmon and cole slaw/ red cabbage. The theme that I thought of was grizzly bears catching the salmon from the waterfall, then turned to grizzly being the chef. I remember loving this from Digital Illustration that I want it to be more regular. I'm not sure what recipes I do but the character that will run the series is either Rob & Katie from "Tails" or Beth & Beast from the webcomic "Write In Me".
For now, a lot is upcoming and all I got to say, Beware of the next Winter storm from above.
