Art Directing

Continuing on from “Art Direction”, I had to find an article for Sophie to create an image for. (Link for her blog post here). I chose an article about keeping an article for relaxing in and enjoying at night (find it here).  I chose this article because a lot of Sophie’s previous work included beautifully drawn plant life and thought she could have a bit of fun with this idea.

She came up with a couple of ideas and compositions for this article but the best idea from the ones she thought up was her sketch of putting the garden inside a jar, like you would with fairy lights or a terrarium. Below is her final illustration which I love. I wanted her to use a minimal color pallet because a lot of current contemporary editorial illustration uses that technique. At first I was unsure about the color choice but once printed it looks beautiful. I am very happy with the final piece.
