As a graphic designer, this was an opportunity for the client to be yourself. With so much freedom, Moa was at a loss at where to begin. Looking for advice, she drew what brought her pleasure, and then turned her designs into a promotional piece. 

Lessons learned: Not to center everything. Ultimately, the client is buying your vision.

final project | drawing S'16

Maria designed a party invitation for her mother and best friend - both vibrant personalities, who often dress alike. Attitude and glamour were mimicked in the loose-handed illustrations of Kenneth Paul Block. With marker, Maria moved onto tracing paper, and then experimented with gouache. When finalized in photoshop, their bubbly vibe went unchallenged among a flock of admirers. 

Lessons learned: Focus, simplicity, and incomplete contours.
