The students at the workshop were given two assignments to complete in the remaining three weeks of the workshop after the first week seminar and the first assignment is above.
Shortly before I left for the workshop I shot reference photos of a group of singers in a plaza in downtown St.Louis.
I created two illustrations for this assignment,one of a singer with a landscape in the background which was done using Dr. Martins dye, magic marker and graphite pencil on prepared acetate and one larger illustration of two singers created using gesso, acrylic paint and pencil on cold press illustration board.
There was a second assignment which was to create a cover for a paperback book called “The Understudy”. There was a chapter were an actor dreams he becomes a lion,I think,it’s been 35 years ago.Below is my take on the book cover.
