Illustration Project - Checklist

It is good to see some of the resourceful photoshoots and solid bits of drawing that have been going on. So you can check you are up to date here is a list of everything that should be complete by Monday 12th March:

  • Research into Quentin Blake's illustration (print out several examples of his work and include personal analysis of his technique, background information and at least one visual response).
  • Research into at least 2 Films that are based on works by Roald Dahl. Again include vital information: director, year made, lead actors, some personal written response and good images from the film.
  • Initial brainstorming and photoshoot storyboarding for 3 scenes from your chosen Roald Dahl story. At least 3 pages of storyboards with annotation, plus breakdown of requirements for your shoot (models, location, props, make up, lighting etc.).
  • Examples of good existing storyboards presented in your sketchbook with analysis (e.g. work by Josh Sheppard).
  • Contact sheets of your photoshoot/s you should have a good range of shots to work with.
  • A5 or A4 printouts of several of your best shots.

    Annie Liebovitz

    Ruven Afanador
  • Research into at least 2 photographers whose work explores fantastical themes e.g. Ruven Afanador, Annie Liebovitz.
David Foldvari

Esra Roise

Hope Gangloff

  • Research into 2 illustrators whose work focusses on strong drawing technique such as Esra Roise, David Foldvari and Hope Gangloff. As usual include good reproductions, background information and analysis of technique.
  • A range of fantastic drawn responses to your photography, these should include at least 2 really good sustained full page tonal pencil drawings. You should have a minimum of 4 other drawings, exploring technique (linear, expressive) and media (ink, biro, fineliner).
Good Luck, I look forward to seeing your sketchbooks taking shape.
