Patrick Rogers – Sketchbook, Week 11, Landscape

5/17/2022 – 5:54 PM

For this sketchbook assignment, I chose to draw and color a simplified, abstracted version of a landscape. So I went outside and drew, and I tried to simplify my composition. Then I colored it with markers, and I tried to make it sort of stylized and abstracted at the same time. I like how simple it ended up looking.

Patrick Rogers – Sketchbook, Week 10, Listen and Draw

5/17/2022 – 5:48 PM

For this sketchbook assignment, I went to a restaurant parking lot to pick up my dinner one night, and as I waited and went in to pick up my food, I listened to the restaurant patrons talk about their dinners etc. And it got me thinking about different types of pasta, as this was an Italian restaurant. I absolutely love pasta, so I decided to draw out the different types of pastas and write “pasta forever” in huge block letters.

final Marie Antoinette film poster

In terms of process, everything went really well in making my final project for Illustration class. I made a poster for the film Marie Antoinette, directed by Sofia Coppola. I used a still image from the film to help guide my hand drawing, and I think I drew it pretty well. Then I scanned my drawing, and I used Photoshop to digitally place different photographs of different materials and textures into each part of the drawing. Meaning I placed a picture of silk satin in the bodice of her dress, tulle in her skirt, charmeuse in her sleeves, and a rococo style wallpaper in the background, etc. I tried to stick with all shades of pink for her dress, to compliment the wallpaper colors, which are green and pink. Also, I think my style I used for this poster compliments the tone of the film quite well, because the film is totally decadent and has a punk rock quality to it, and I tried to mirror those elements in the decadence of the wallpaper and the materials and textures in her dress, as well as the lo-fi/punk-ish lettering and placement of the titles. I enjoyed making my final poster, and I like how it looks!
