Magic Carpet Ride
This is my final submission for MATS Bootcamp online course,
taught by art licensing agent, Lilla Rogers and produced by
June's assignment : illustrate an article about digital nomads
Each month we receive an assignment. 1st we're given hints and reference for
sketching and a week or so after, we receive the final assignment.
I really love having these deadlines, despite nearly missing this last one.
I mistakenly thought we had another week.
It's been a busy month.
I was proud I knocked out this piece on Sunday in time to submit.
My work is more suited to a teen or kids' magazine than it is for Forbes where -
Tips for Becoming a Successful Digital Nomad was printed.
Even so, I like it :)
Above - May's assignment : crustacean + pattern - plate designs
April's assignment : design a poster for The Global Art Gathering held in Brighton, UK
February's assignment : wall art on wood
(we skipped March while the MATS B course ran)
and see sketches if you'd like - here
Our 1st assignment - January : create a journal cover (Edwardian brooch/jewel inspired)
You can view my sketches here
This was an extra little piece - A Manifesto for the class
I had another very good experience taking this course.
The Facebook private group is super for support and sharing opinions and resources.
Plus, the projects are fun and tailored to the current market.
I took Make Art That Sells part A (one week deadlines)
in spring of 2014. I've signed up for Lilla's Global Talent Search
that begins in August. I'll keep you updated on that one!
Thanks for taking a look!
Hope you have AC, I finally turned mine on.
