Illustration

This will be our main project for the next couple weeks. We are going to be focussing on honing our skills using the pen and gradient mesh tools.

Part 1: Practice re-creation using the pen and gradient mesh tools using the light bulb graphic provided on the class Google drive. With this part we want to get some experience re-creating an image in Illustrator.

Due: Thursday, February 2nd

Part 2: We will need to photograph some images that we can choose from for part 3. This will include finding, at minimum, five relatively complex objects, photographing them for use and then bringing them to class (with printed contact sheets) for us to select the best one to use.

Due: Thursday, February 2nd

Part 3: With the experience from the practice image (light bulb) from part 1 we will take the image selected from part 2 and re-create half the image. Using the examples provided in class as reference to what the end result should look like. For presentation this will need to be printed at 8 x 10 (half illustration, half photo) on good matte or glossy paper and mounted to black foam core with a two inch border.

Due: Tuesday, February 14th
