Diagonal Project


Patterns, layers, color and design are key when trying to draw attention to your artwork. For this project, I used colors to separate parts of my work and bring attention to other ones. My illustration contains five different animals in it: a hairless car, goldfish, a lion, a giraffe, and some birds. I threw a totem pole in there as well. The task at hand was to use the animals to create depth in the picture, and to also have scale change apparent among the animals. I made one of the goldfish, the hairless cat and the lion all bout the same size. This was to show scale change because in real life they are all big jumps from each other in size. Next, I made the giraffe the second smallest animal because in real life it’s the biggest of the animals.

The background is all the galaxy print that I created using a variety of watercolor brushes. I worked from the back and layered up using a technique called “stack and pack.” Everything branches and meanders into each other. This, along with my tessellations creates movement through my illustration. Tessellations help to achieve dimension and create a balance in your work by drawing things together or separating them. My project is filled with tessellations.
