my tree ideas for my storybook illustration




These illustrations were created by Annie Boberg. I noticed her illustration in the sainsburys food magazine. her illustrations look quite quickly put together she uses diferent styles texture and materials to give a varied design. She creates collages of found imagery from magazines she also involves her own drawings. the image of the lady in the bath she has used photography of real bath bubbles.

I spotted this paper mach'e moose on the wall in urban outfitters in Edinburgh. It has been created with different shades of brown paper which has a simple frame of wire underneath. I am also interested in the combination of the 2d and 3d aspect of the design. The bear that has been created using lots of ripped shapes of paper but with a smooth outline i have taken a similar approach to my own collages of animal characters that i am currently working on for the gingerbread man illustrations.





I keep noticing trees with eyes at the moment they look very spooky like there watching you.





These are the gingerbread men that i created for the main character i thought using actual gingerbread would be most fitting to incorporate my 3d style. I had lots of fun creating them. I used a template of a body and seperate arms and legs and repositioned them to make alternate positions. I am currently trying out different ideas of how to involve 2d and 3d in my work .


I have recently dicovered Keith Haring's work. He creates very loud images with bold lines and active figures they carry poignant messages of vitality and unity. He was an artist and social activist whose work responded to the New York City street culture of the 1980s. i looked at his work for inspiration for my gingerbread characters as i am currently reinterpretating the childrens story book gingerbread man.

Kate Slater is a freelance illustrator she works in both flat collage and a combination of paper cut outs and wire these constructions are then photographed to produce the final image. I am currently looking for different illustrators who work in 3d and 2d that will influence my work. this is her website http://kateslaterillustration.com/




I am looking at new ways of illustrating for ways in which to use 3d and 2d i found this illustrator on this website Snarlik.se РJohan Th̦rnqvist
