Editorial Illustration: The Art of War

For editorial illustration last semester we took a field trip to the bookstore and had to pick and have approved an article to illustrate. I found an article in The Optimist magazine about the relevance of the Art of War today and chose it.

This is a different illustration style and technique for me. I’ve done pen and ink, and I’ve colored digitally, but I’ve not really put them together like this. I really enjoyed it and want to experiment further.

My One Ok Rock Gift

Pretty much everyone in my life knows I love music and concerts, and that my favorite band is One Ok Rock, a Japanese rock band.

So… I’ve seen them 4 times, met them approximately 2.65 times, have autographs, pictures, and have given them 2 pieces of mine. I’m oddly thorough at times, what can I say? I’m not sorry for any of it and I’d do it all again.

Anyway. This is what I made- I gave it to them at a meet and greet.

OOR 1

It’s based off their song/music video “Deeper Deeper” and it’s made with Micron pens on a piece of canvas-like stuff that I found.

It was cool because we were at the end of the meet and greet line, they had hugged and smiled for a lot of people, but they still reacted to this so genuinely, which was lovely. 🙂

I haven’t seen them since October. It’s about time for another concert.
