What was the inspiration for your artwork?
The octopi image is part of a 36-page ABC-type book created for the Advanced Layout class. Each page of the book has a hand drawn illustration with callouts on scientific information and a brief description of each sea creature.
How did you create your artwork?
The octopi was a hand drawn illustration which I first imported to Photoshop to adjust levels of lights and darks. After that, the image was placed in Illustrator, image traced, and converted to white. The layout of the book and pages were created in InDesign and the background was painted in Illustrator
