Bunch of doodles. Old sketches…
Before I decided to do animals instead of flowers.
And….after this I decided to do animals. So those are in my process post.
It all started out with random sketches and doodles to gather ideas. I was very interested in animals.
At the same time, I liked food. I liked eating. I wanted to explore the point of view of animals had on food. What do they see human food? How do they see it? I approached it in a quirky way.
By placing the animals in the food itself. I found this way to be quirky yet the watercolor details make it look like I’m serious about this commentary.
Chicken in the chicken rice was born. i explored the wet mediums like ink and water colors. More examples of how I explored the medium in the “Bees exploration pages”…
My initial idea on the composition and wanted it to have a textbook look.
So, I wrote their names below the illustrations. Over here I’m just testing out the potential fonts or brush lettering methods I can use.
In my final piece, I concluded the image with a washi tape to tape the circle to the mounting board for presentation. I chose to do this because the shadow casted at the side/bottom of the circle give depth to the entire composition
