Indeed, my first academic year as an MA Children’s Book Illustration student has come to an end already! It’s been a long and somewhat confusing term but I have learnt so much, and so much over the course of the year! To think that before I was on this course I hardly did any observational drawing outside life drawing is crazy. I have learnt so much, so much about drawing, colour, composition, sequence, perspective and what makes a ‘good’ image.
Throughout this term at uni we’ve been having different print tutorials in Anglia Ruskin’s amazing print rooms. Today we did some dry point printing and worked in groups of three to create prints based on seasons: ours was autumn!
This Easter I decided to enter an open brief for artists ran by Amelia’s Magazine around the theme of Easter. My Easter card design which I scanned and coloured on photoshop can be seen By clicking on this link!
As I mentioned in the article, I really wanted to create something which captured what I love about Easter, possibly my favourite season of the year! I love old vintage greetings cards and the pastel colours they have. I also love spring and the flowers that start to bloom at this time of the year, and of course animals which explains the rabbit and lamb!
