This week has been so much fun at MATS class, I found it really challenging thought.
Type of art - Children's Book Illustration
The focus was on drawing a snail & developing facial expressions. As we know an expression in a book can tell a thousand words. We were then asked to interpret a front cover of the book "The snail & the rose tree", by Hans Christian. We were given the story & our interpretation was to come from what we read. We also had to do some hand lettering for the book title which I believe I clearly need some work on.
I found the story a little dark & I didn't really like it to be honest, or the bad attitude of the snail. But regardless I had to take this on board like I would a client & develop an illustration to meet the demands.
I am not completely unhappy with the final result, & believe I could have done it again differently but time was unfortunately against me this week.
Assignment 4 which I am being briefed about this week is all about wall art which really excites me.
