Thank you Emma for this class, it was very helpful to see how you tackle an editorial job!
I worked on the same article you did the demonstration with and I have to say that I spent a ridiculous amount of time to find a concept that pleased me... I find it quite difficult to come up with interesting ideas but I guess with practice I'll find my own angle.
I drew tons of sketches with a couple in different situations and couldn't find a satisfying one but at some point I came up with this idea of a vase left to decay. Does it make sens to anyone?
Here is my line drawing that I cleaned and coloured digitally on photoshop :
I worked first on the spread doing a grayscale mockup :
And from there layered my illustration on the different formats that Emma gave us :
I would greatly appreciate if anyone has some feedback, thanks!
