I have now started a new illustration brief in college, this is a skill I'm unconfident with and so will be good to improve my techniques!
One of the tasks is to research into both contemporary and historical illustrators, we then have to experiment with both there method and media.
One of the illustrators I looked at was Carl Erickson, whilst researching I noted that he carried his sketchbook everywhere he went, and would only draw still life... so this is what I did.
I then took Eric's style and his preffered choice of media (charcoal) and began to sketch using my own capsule collection designs to inform the garments...
I like this technique and choice of media; charcoal. However I don't think this method would suit my sustainable designs as the illustration needs to be more current.
