Learning the process: Working with a design student Pt2

Here’s a one of my finals for Illustration class. We were paired up with a Design student who needed an illustration done for their final publication. The student paired up with me had a online magazine concept about New and Old (ON) and this issue was about paper.

She sent me an article that had to do with the art and tradition of paper making in China. We shot ideas back and forth and eventually I came up with the idea of illustrating a man at his shop with a line of his ancestors behind him going back through history. It is done on printmaking paper and ink. It was really neat to work in a simulated real-world job and I can’t wait to do this for real!
