OUIL403 Visual Skills - Typology Development

Lip Biting/Cursing
I started to develop my drawings by focusing a page of my sketchbook on each different letter of the alphabet. This gave me a chance to experiment with colour, style and size and also give me a chance to experiment with how I could draw things so I could see what worked well and what didn't. After the first couple of pages I started to fall into a style/colour scheme that was then consistent throughout the rest of my drawings. 

The first page of drawings I did included work that was done in coloured pencil, finaliser and copic markers as well as some that were a mixture of two. I had been experimenting with using different colours and was enjoying working with a dark pink colour but soon remembered that the poster had to be produced in monochrome. I then started to use a grey copic marker to add colour and fill to some of my drawings and found that even though I preferred using the dark pink, the grey also worked well and also fit to the requirements of the brief.

After I'd developed all of my sketches I started to think about layout. I knew that all the individual illustrations had to be set as vignettes or floating spots and also that there had to be a written title. I wanted the finished poster to be in some kind of order so decided to lay my illustrations out in a grid that would allow me to put the illustrations in order of the alphabet while still giving me enough space for a hand written title.
