digital illustration class
assignment: using adobe illustrator, illustrate a personal emotional memory
using adobe illustrator i digitally illustrated a personal meaningful memory of mine.
the memory: when i was pregnant with my second son i was always really sick, i had severe “morning sickness”. so after returning from the hospital after an episode, i was nauseous in bed. when my then 3yr old son came in the room to check on me. he asked me what was wrong and i told him i didn’t feel well. then he just laid there with me caressing my face and ended up falling asleep with me. it was a special moment for me, not only for obvious reasons (it being so sweet), but it was the amount of love and compassion my 3yr old son showed me just meant so much to me. in that moment i felt that i must have done something right as a mother to have such a empathetic loving son.
the plants, represent growth & life. the universe within in us shows our connection.
the professors last minute assignment plot twist: copy the illustration, change 20 minor things and create a “spot the 20 differences” graphic.
