Rough Sketch

Color Research I look into some color concept that I could follow or have a guide because as I roughly created a background using the reference from my mood board I realized that the color are too down, it is too boring and gives a sad, moody feeling and I don’t want that as a magazine cover.

The first composition that caught my eyes were actually these little matt looking color pencil style like composition, but looking back at my theme there are alot of individual items and “stereotypes” that I wanted to in cooperate into the composition, this style to me seems more like creating a scenario/ situation so I thought that it might be Read more →

BRAINSTORMING CONCEPT:) I started this project by simply creating a blank page and write down the three topics:  Obsessions, Empathy and Style. Following, I wrote down events, situations that happen around me that are inspired by these three words. E.g, What people are obsess about (traditions, cheese, neatness), Then I realized as i write, the is one common situation Read more →

Since my last post I have progressed with the illustration and found an article on plastic surgery and how it affects the person on mental level. The article by Marioka D. et al. (2014) explores the Borderline personality disorder (BPD) after the aesthetic plastic surgery.  I found this fact interesting and decided to apply it on the illustration.

The issue that Read more →

This is my Thumbnail Sketch on post-it for my composition:)

1-3, 5-7: I want to bring out the two side of of perspective in this composition, one side is the designer thoughts and another side is the stereotype thoughts people have towards designer.

4, This is one of my weakest composition i feel, personally I wanted to try Read more →

Hi Rachel! I really like your theme on Empathy and the topic you've chose as it is relatable amongst art and design student! Hence, you've already gotten a very obvious target audience that will be drawn to your choice of topic and cover! :D On first glance, the sketch that grabbed my attention the fastest is number 16! :) The idea of using a Gatchapon machine ( The dollar twist thing ;)) is really great! Because I a designer often has to twist their brain into thinking and satidfy the requirements of their clients, but on the outside, people who see the gatchapon machine just assume that upon paying the money, they can get what they wish for. Hence, I think you can ride on that Gatchapon idea and the PHD one, so for every ball capsule is the hard work put in for every designer (Eg. Designers slogging out on the designs, where each ball capsule is the designer's work place) and the exterior poster for the machine can just be a very stereotypical advertisement for the Gatchapon game ( E.g. Designers just draw, it is so easy! Just turn to get an easy design!) Then the turing knob can be a brain of the designer ^^ Just a whacky suggestion!
