ABC Certificate in Illustration Portraits brief 2009

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.
