BFA Illustration | Class of 2020
I am a senior Illustration major at Daemen College, currently focusing on nature illustration. Much of my work is inspired by my interest in small and often overlooked organisms which I try to evoke the beauty of through detailed rendering in traditional media like colored pencil and watercolor.
Overlooked: Elevating National Geographic Articles Through Illustration
For this project I took two National Geographic articles from their website and created illustrations and layouts that could theoretically be used in a physical magazine. I chose articles that I felt weren’t as approachable or not as immediately gripping as others so I could utilize my illustrations to highlight the message(s) of the articles and draw in more readers. All pieces are done in colored pencil, with the latter also having a watercolor base, to emphasize the intricacies of the organisms being illustrated.
