Produce a line visual around one of these words:
“Through brainstorming, you may decide to draw from an object or selection of objects or work in a more narrative way around a scene or idea. Ensure that the line visual you produce through visual exploration and development is very clear, employing a line which is solid and definite – fine-liners over a pencil visual should give a clean edge“.
For this exercise I chose the word “journey”. When I was brainstorming to come up with an idea for this illustration I thought of what this word means to me. And I remember of a quote I love that says that the most important part of a journey is not only the destination but also the actual journey to get there. Therefore, I decided to capture this idea by illustrating a road trip to represent the beauty of the actual journey.
I really liked this exercise because it made me work with really clean lines, which I usually don’t do. Which also made me spend more time on this exercise than I anticipated.
Furthermore, I was surprised by liking more the black and white version of my illustration due to the fact that I always choose to create art with color instead of a monochromatic scale of black and white.
