Paper dolls

Paper dolls for this week.


My mother asked me to make a poster advertising her Theater Camp, Derryfield Repertory Theater Company. It might look slightly too young, but I kind of love it. I did those same clouds for a commission last year and I missed them. They also appear in my latest Concepts work which will be posted here sometime this week.

Ooh Sealife

My first real assignment for Lifestyle Illustration. We had to choose an environment and then choose clothing that fit and illustrate at least two figures in each piece. I chose the Jardin Majorelle, a French botanical garden in Morocco. In my sketches I simply had my girls just standing there and it was boring that I didn't even want to do it. I talked to my TA and she told me to think about creating a story and using that. Since the dresses reminded me of fish, I decided to go with a weird under the sea theme and since my girls are sort of under water, I made them rubbery looking and squid-like. I'm still not at all happy with the first one and corrections need to be made, but I like the second.

Here is my first attempt at dressing my paper dolls for Lifestyle Illustration. They look alright, I'm not crazy about the guy, but that probably makes sense since I don't want to own those clothes.
