Project 7 - Editorial
Project 7 - Editorial Illustration
Choose a chapter from LEAP (on http://spreadtheword.org.uk/) and create an editorial illustration from it. A copy of LEAP can be downloaded here. This is a project supported by the Arts Council of England.
I will provide you with layouts of the left hand page for three chapters. Choose one.
I want you to imagine that the book has been serialized and is magazine format. The beginning of the chapter will be on the left hand page, and your illustration will occupy the right.
Take clues from the objects, colors, attitudes, and people in the text. Do not let the cover influence your choice of illustration.
Start with rough sketches - 10 would be perfect. Then move on to a more finished draft.
Consider using a technique that you’ve not used this semester. How about a collage, assemblage, drawing that is then made into a digital hybrid?
Keep all the parts for your portfolio - rough sketches, the process you used for the finished piece, as well as the finished illustration.
