This piece was one of the illustrations I produced for an early assignment in the Illustration course and is an illustration of a short poem by Lucy Maud Montgomery. This was the final illustration of the set and the poem told a story with very clear scenes so I tried to capture that graphically in a comic strip-style piece.
The assignment had to be done in black and white but I enjoyed that a limited colour palette made me focus on the light and dark on the page, and the shape and positioning of the panels. I haven’t spent much time drawing buildings before so it was a good opportunity to practise!
I had a lot of fun doing this piece and really enjoyed the chance to develop the graphic representation of the poem. I’m looking forward to the sequential assignment in the course where I will have another opportunity to develop these techniques further.
