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.


  1. I really really enjoyed your drawings and the composition you chose. I think it was really cool how you placed your text in different way that was very creative. I think you did an awesome job because its clear, well thought out and organized!

  2. Kara, I absolutely love how you have placed your text without using a border. It really makes you think about the composition. Also I love the zoomed in detail views, it's not too much, but just enough to get the point across. Wonderful!

  3. I Looove the details that you have included in your spread! You can tell that you put a lot of time into the lettering and even thinking about the composition. The line quality is great! It helps to define the spaces within the composition through the page. AWESOME work!
