Research on Illustrators and editorial magazines.Joanne Poon
This was a poster designed by Joanne Poon for a circus event! I love how all the colors helped to make the event look inviting and fun! The poster along with the other information templates looked unified and belonging to each other too. I think that it is a very successful poster not only because Read more →
Editorial illustration research
Varoom MagazineVaroom – the illustration report, is a unique large format publication commenting and discussing the contemporary illustrated image in depth. It publishes interviews with illustrators, the ongoing issues, sparks critical conversations within the illustrators/artists/designers.

editorial illustration #1: reference artists + theme
Here’s a Korean artist I first encountered and immediately fell in love with at the (very inspiring and absolutely life changing!!!) Seoul Illustration Fair last summer. Although he’s not specifically an editorial illustrator, I don’t think that his work would be out of place in a magazine layout or even cover illustration. Read more →

self-portrait #1: class sketch & reference artist!
As a prelude to the self-portrait exercise, we partnered up and did a quick sketch of our partners. It’s been a while since I drew analog so this was a great activity to get things started 🙂 I think that doing everything digitally (and also the undo/redo key) has made my working style even messier and I Read more →

Hello! Here is the process of completing the final piece. Knowing that I wanted to create intricate borders, I knew that I had to draw it out on paper. For the borders, I referenced sea anemones and corals as I also love the sea.
Afterwards, I went ahead and sketch used a wacom to trace the lines out on illustrator. Read more →
Self Portrait - Final

After the feedback from last week’s session, I decided to change my style into a more Tim Burton-ish style. His illustration is cartoony but representing twisted and dark feeling from it, which I think would be suitable for my concept.
