This week’s assignment for Conceptual Illustration is to take media that you’ve had no experience with and then group them into 2 or 3 themes.
I really liked the Waterman’s Serenity Blue ink. The others are Winsor Newton.
I initially started with the idea of Copic markers and ink washes, but I found that I preferred the unexpected results of ink washes and the fractal patterns that they made as they got absorbed into paper to Copics, which were a more controlled medium.
Some of the random washes I’ll be working on this week are posted below. This week’s assignment for RMCAD is with abstract sources of inspiration for illustration. Next week, will be with concrete discoveries. It should be fun.
This week I’ll be illustrating with the Guild of Natural Science Illustration Northwest at the Burke Museum. I also got some nice news that Pilchuck Audubon is interested in having me illustrate some work for their educational program.
