an exercise in illustration
Hello all, two posts in two days, what a notion! I've made yet another image, shaped around the same concept that drove the illustration in my previous post seen here. This time I tried the illustration in the collage style which I've been doing off and on since 2007. For these illustrations I head to my collection of books, older than 100 years, for images, and then I repurpose them, cut them up, reassemble them, and altogether alter them so that they work as I'd like them to. The concept, once again, is an article about canning. I think some of the concept may be lost in the digital collage-styled image, however, I think it makes up for it with visual and textural interest. What do you, the readers think? Should I pour more effort into the cartoon or the collage style?
