Editorial Illustration

By CRAIG KUNCE

Directions

Choose one of the following:

  1. An article in a magazine, journal, newspaper, etc. The article can come from an online or printed version. (at least 3–10 pages)
  2. One chapter in a novel of your choice. (at least 10–20 pages)

Read the article/chapter thoroughly. You should read it several times to make sure you fully understand it.

Now create a black and white digital or pen and ink illustration to represent the entire article or chapter (ink washes are fine too).
