2008-2009 cohort. Students on the ABC Certificate in Illustration @ LCC were asked to produce three portraits chosen from the list of 10 ‘Personalities’ below:
Francis Bacon – late British painter
Russell Brand – Presenter & Comedian
Daniel Craig – British Actor
Estelle – Musician
Audrey Niffenegger – Writer & Artist
Barack Obama – US President elect
Jacqui Smith – UK Home Secretary
Sachin Tendulkar – Indian Test Cricketer
Prof. Lord Robert Winston – Fertility expert
Wonder Woman – Comic book superhero
Directions: The illustrations of each of your choices must communicate your understanding of the selected ‘Personalities’ appearance. You can use a range of techniques to create the illustrations. The size and shape of your illustrations is at your descretion. Full colour is available. Look at existing illustrators or artist’s work and analyse its strengths and weaknesses. You could also think about a suitable environment to situate the personality in, this could be a simple image that does not clash with main portrait e.g. Architect: famous building or Writer: scene from their book.
The students had four weeks to complete this project.
Their artwork is set out below. All rights rests with the individual artists.
