Illustration is a visual communication tool used by both Fashion and Textiles disciplines. This project develops your drawing skills by introducing you to a variety of unusual approaches to mark making. You will be using a range of drawing mediums & materials each with different qualities for you to explore. Translating your observational marks into illustrative outcomes, you will be emphasising elements of your observations using imaginative and creative explorations - looking at composition, line, tone, exaggeration, scale, colour and texture.
You will be asked to style a group of models (yourselves!) with a mixture of draping material, costume and accessories provided. Investigate this intensively through drawing. Document these transformations in your A3 Sketchbook showing a range of mark-making and mixed media. Pay close attention to textural subtleties, silhouette, surface, line, texture, tone, shape, weight and colour.
