The brief for the Applied Illustration is to create two illustrations that would be used at the start of two chapters in the book The sliver Donkey by Sonya Hartnett. The two chapters are The Fog When and The Soldier in the Trees. I started by writing these up and highlighted words that I thought would be important or useful.
Using different types of paper (brown bag, squared, plain and the inside of an envelop) I covered most of the text in the book.
I created this illustration of mushrooms using a traditional dip ink pen.
I then added more ink to add definition, and then added a water wash.
I used LetraSet ProMarkers with the LetraJet Air and ink and water to cover most of the text of the book. I then used this as a background for this illustration of a Silver Donkey. To create this donkey I used the inside of a envelope as a back shade of grey. I then used small pieces of plain white paper to add highlights. To create the darker tones I used the LetraJet Air and a grey ProMarker. to add the final definition I used a grey Stabilo Point 88 pen.
