Hugging The Moon – Series

I created this series as part of my Digital Design Course,  I was tasked to created a few images based off a creative brief from digitalartsonline.co.uk.

Original Brief – ‘We are undeniably part of the universe but we tend to forget it. Produce  set of illustrations that remind the viewer about the comprehensible vastness of space and ultimate futility of life. But make sure you don’t make them feel miserable.’ – Illustrator, Rob Nicol – robert-nicol.co.uk.

I started by creating various sketches for my different ideas :

In my creative brief that I created based on the original I wanted to explore using these images for a children’s book, so as part of my assignment I needed to create a prototype of how it might look if this is how they might be used. Find my digital version here.

Prototype :

I needed to include various image sizes of my final artworks, so I choose to do this with one image that could also be used on posters to promote the book. The rest of the images are square cropped because this is a popular format used in children’s books and a ratio that I like working with.
