English | .FLV/MP4 | 135 MBGenre: eLearning
This class is for intermediate illustrators and designers who know their way around Adobe Illustrator and are up for the challenge of illustrating tomorrows yesterday. Students will create a postcard of a city of their choosing. The postcard will be a greeting from the future to the past (today). The style of the postcard will be vintage but the city itself will be the way you think it will be in the future. (So its like if Doctor Who went to New York City in 3013 and sent you a postcard of NYC illustrated in a 1950s style.)
This class will be broken down in a few phases.
First well look at old illustrations to take cues from the old masters. We will spend a little bit of time making shapes and playing with opacity layers.
Second you will choose a city. Youll collect images that you feel really represent the city well.
Third you will sketch a composition of your city and get creative by implementing some futuristic components. You should keep typography in mind during this process and start to think about a color palette.
Finally youll bring it all together in Adobe Illustrator (30-day free trial available at Adobe.com). This includes finding templates from the US Post Office or moo.com setting up files picking colors and brush strokes etc.
We have a lot to learn from the illustrators of the midcentury. They were masters of simplification and spunk. They had a knack for making something look simultaneously sophisticated and fun. Todays visual world is getting more simplified and full of color so this class is a deep dive into the world that inspired ours.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
