All Aboard!


I've just completed week 1 of MATS B and I'm so pleased with and proud of my final outcome. (Please see photo below) I've been on the MATS journey for a little over a year now and I can see how much my work and skills have improved since February 2014. I have had the most fun with this latest assignment and I've been told it shows! *happy dance*

Our brief was to draw trains for a winter themed holiday card. The challenge was fitting the design into a portrait card format. I had several ideas and decided that this time, instead of focusing on my preferred concept, I would concentrate on drawing all the icons and build the design in Illustrator later.

My process involved sketching, collage, drawing on collage and finally recreating the individual icons in Illustrator. I began by creating a few digital mood boards (one of which can be seen in the photo below) where I pasted images of work I like (eg Paul Rand), sketches from my sketchbooks, Duplo trains at my son's school etc. Some of my initial sketches can also be seen in the photo below... I didn't end up using my initial idea of simple, flat, colourful shapes ... perhaps I'll go that route for this week's assignment, so do watch this space!
