Homework: Using the character you’ve developed in class make at least 1 finished SREAD or 2 finished illustrations etc.. depending on how you split up the images and the text. Also bring and show your sketches for them.
The illustrations you will make will be size: height: 12 in, width: 10.5 in per page, or if you want to work on the spread on one page: height: 12 in, width: 21 in. Use the versatile Stonehenge paper I gave you at beginning of class if you still have some!
Remember to employ light and dark, composition, and your fully refined character for this. Please look at the work of at least one of your favorite artists so far for this for inspiration! Bring the hard copy to class. (if you're making them on the computer just print them out smaller on 11x17 paper)
Here is the text for you to illustrate:
Title: I Don't Want to Travel
by Emmanuelle Houdart
I don't want to travel
Except in the hand of a giant
Except on a broomstick
Except in the jaws of a wolf
Except in a bottle of raspberry syrup
Except on the back of a tortoise
Except with my Catfish
Except by the light of the Moon
Except under the sea
Except with my favorite book.
