For our illusstration project we were asked to write a short story of approximately 250 words. From this, we were meant to create 2x double-page spreads to reflect on the story.
My story was about a squirrel named Mirror. It is a childrens story and so i wanted to reflect this within the page design, composition and colours I used.
To create my double-page spreads, I created a background scene using acrylic paints, of which I then layered a sheet of acetate ontop of. For the writing I used a UHP pen and thought about the composition of the writing and where it would look best. For example on the second of the pages, I gave the text a curved base line to reflect on what the writing was saying. ‘The wind picked up..’
