My friend asked me to do some illustrations for her
university course’s final year ideas to raise money for their final
show. She is on a costume design course in London and my friend and her
coursemates are putting together their own recipe book so these
illustrations will be for the final book.
I was happy to do it, as I enjoy drawing the costumes from the related eras shown here.
The first image shows the rough ideas I sketched out with the
reference material given. Then after my friend had chosen the ones she
liked (with her coursemates’ feedback too) I cleaned up the drawings and
did some very basic colouring.
I really enjoyed drawing the last two (the flapper girl and the 1950s
woman) as I absolutely adore the two eras. They were SO fun to draw. I
really want to do more, especially 50s style.
I was pushed for time to get these done by the end, so the oven in
the 1950s one is traced (I know, the shame!) from this image here: http://www.memorystore.org.uk/_images/gadgetsPics/largepopup/cooker1950s.jpgTHANKS GOOGLE IMAGES *WINK*
Once the book is printed I will be sent a copy, so cannot wait to see it! I’ll have to take a photo and upload it here.
I really hope they raise the money. I know from my university course experience last year how challenging it is for the whole year to club together to raise enough money to put on a good show! Go guys!
