Shortly after i got the hang of working on the final major project and were starting to think about what topic to choose for the 6000 word essay i became ill with Meningitis and was hospitialised for a week. I had to take a further month of absence to recover well enough to return to university. During this time i thought to change my previous ideas and instead of doing observational drawing i have chosen to do book illustration instead.
I have chosen to this because after looking through previous sketchbooks from my uni studies i remembered that i enjoyed that project because it is more what i enjoy doing; which is book illustration and editorial illustration. I thought this was the best idea because after a tutorial it was said that the observational drawing idea needed more depth to it and i found it difficult find something else to link with it.
So now i am going to research into artists whose practice includes book illustration and start to create ideas.
