The theme I chose has to do with fall and thanksgiving time so it relates to the color palette I usually use and also I wanted to show a part that reminds me of New York as soon as I see it or hear it. I use lots of bright colors and shades of yellow and orange.
How does the theme you chose to illustrate reflect the type of work you want to do in the future?
I chose themes that were very native and unique to New York. These is not a topic that I draw from often, but I am looking at it though my style-lens and using my imagination to create whimsical options, but I also like to add a more graphic option and a “straight-forward” option as well. This reflects my future work as an Art Director and Illustrator because I am able to conceive many ideas with different styles in mind. I like for my thumbnails to always be very different from one another because it’s like casting a broader net, so there is a higher success rate for the best idea to come through.
Halloween is a holiday that holds a special place in my heart. It’s a time when we can showcase our creativity and decorate without constraints. As someone who loves to express my artistic side, I’ve always been keen on utilizing my illustration skills to design unique Halloween decorations and seasonal greeting cards.
