Illustration Design Lab

IDL was an amazing class which emphasized personal voice and honest mark making.  It taught us to stop relying on style and focus on the content of the images.  David encouraged us to create interesting non-literal illustrations that would surprise the viewer.  We explored the various ways of image making, and I had a lot of fun mixing media and doing direct intuitive paintings.  In the end, we created two zines; here are some of the images from my zines.  Enjoy!

This was a tough class!! The first image is a 6"x 9" on location painting from the Descanso gardens and the rest are some sketchbook pages:

Event Posters

Here are some of the posters from IDL.  We were supposed to create 3 solutions for posters and choose one for a final product.  Every time I talked to David, we seemed to agree that my new images for the week could work better as posters, and somehow I ended up with about 7 different poster variations.  It was definitely a great experience on exploring options and not getting too attached to any one particular idea.  Here are some of them.  Enjoy!
