The idea of the session was to create a image/illustration that links with a news article. We were advised that it could be abstract or literal. I decided to do a spot illustration that tells the story using little imagery as possible.
To do a quick sketch i used a charcoal crayon then used a marker pen to create the outlines.
From this session i thought how i like creating illustration for news/magazine articles and it reminded me enjoying a similar task for a college project.
The images below are illustrations that i created for a made up magazine article about drink driving during my Graphic Design studies at Leeds College of Art. I really enjoyed the illustration project then and i really enjoyed the experimental drawing session. Perhaps creating illustrations for articles will be a good job route for me.
