Here it is! The finished product of the Editions brief – A Yuletide Yarn. I am quite proud of how cute it looks, apart from the paper not really being the paper I wanted but due to the way I printed it I wasn’t able to use my own paper easily. It is something I want to work on and figure out and reprint for some people who want to buy them off me! I think the red twine is a nice touch and works well and I really like how the illustrations printed. Overall, I think I did quite well considering I was at a peak busy time of rushing around! But it’s that time of the year!
My editions brief has taken many turns and I have changed he content of my zines quite a bit depending on the feedback given from the tutors. It’s been a very busy few months and I suppose in terms of time management I’ve had to use my time that I have well!
After the crit on my ideas for the editions brief, I was told to do more research into different styles of drawing and to work on drawing people in movement and different ways to give personality and character to my drawings of Joanne and Rosie. So, I went on the search for illustrators and how they draw people and was very inspired and fell in love with some artists. I will link the artists below in the order of the illustrations shown.
I had a great tutorial with Jay from Nous Vous about my ideas for the Editions brief and he told me his thoughts and helped out with references. Jay thought my Christmas Party comic idea was a good idea but a big task for the brief and to perhaps think about a way to simplify it or to just produce it for my FMP and choose another option or something from the idea that is more simple.
Our next brief and brief from the Local Universe studio until after Christmas is Editions. The brief is about us creating a limited edition piece of work either a zine, print, poster, cards, badges etc. to sell at a market stall in December.
