During the month of August, I decided to try my hand at creating some new illustrations that combined short nature quotes with simple integrated imagery and stylized lettering. I selected quotes from John Muir and Theodore Roethke as my starting points, and laid out a simple wireframe for each piece in Illustrator with the pencil tool. Next, I printed the templates and inked over them on tracing paper. While inking each piece with my microns, I attempted to create different textures in the visual elements. Overall, I’m really pleased with how these turned out.
