wearable watercolors

Jessica's hat and earring. Sharece's eyes (modified, of course).

Jasmine's necklace.

This assignment was rather quick, easy, and fun. I didn't stick to any original colors except for Jessica's gold earring.
Again, the composition could have been better. Sometimes I feel that I am lacking in the creativity department.

illuminated objects and storytelling

Illuminated Objects. To be honest, I positioned my drawings on the pages simply wherever I thought they would fit. There is no real order or hierarchy here. If I had to redo this assignment, I would try to be more thoughtful with my composition.
I used mostly architectural lettering because I love the clean look of it. Each image has corresponding text. In some places, I made the text mimic the direction of lines.
For some reason unbeknownst to be, I had the color blue in mind for this assignment. It also seemed fitting because my ipod is blue, and that happened to be the first thing I colored in.
I found the following page in the October 2006 issue of Elle Decor magazine:
The composition served as my inspiration for our Storytelling assignment:

The first week back at school.
