Illustory of the Silent Victims | Proposal

August 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

Today I submitted my Proposal Document…

UTS will forward this to outside industry professionals and have a look, along with my mentor to give me constructive criticism and feedback. Hopefully I reached some form of clarity in communicating what I want my project to about, what I want to reveal and what I want people to take away. I have edited and re-wrote this several times trying to justify my work and open myself to new things that I have not considered before.

Esoteric Books

August 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

‘Esoteric’ is a word I don’t often come across,

I was stalking my friend Emily Fang on Facebook (yes Facebook), who’s interested in these kinds of books and I thought that some of the books were really interesting too!

I love the covers and style of the McSweeney’s books.

I shall take inspiration from some the books when designing and constructing Illustory of the Silent Victims.

Lovely illustrations of birds,

But they’re in military uniforms which is cute but also scary! Love it either way…

A Visit to the Bookstore

August 22, 2011 § 1 Comment

On Saturday morning,

Lauren Mullen (who’s also undertaking a major project for Visual Communication) and I went to visit Ariel Books at The Rocks to find out if we can see our projects in such a store (That is independent bookstores). We also wanted to visit the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) Store, but the gallery has already been closed for construction. There were quite a few books of history with wonderful covers with illustrations and photography and typography. Yet most of the content of these books were just text and maybe a few pages of images. I would like to think that my project is one of at least few projects out there that encompasses history with illustration as it’s main mode of information.

Been rummaging through my bookshelf,

To see what else I could see as a visual reference. Here’s one of Drawn and Quarterly books featuring Matthew Forsythe‘s illustrations Ojingogo.

Wave Cloud Pine

August 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

Today I bought this book…

After a visit at Kinokuniya. It’s called Wave Cloud Pine by Pie Books which features some beautiful traditional patterns in Japanese Design. I thought that this would be a good source for Japanese patterns I can encompass in my illustrations. Although I don’t want my illustrations to be obviously Japanese, at least I do want it to have the essence of a Japanese aesthetic.
