Art 100 Discussion question on black and white illustration
I’m studying for my Art & Design class and need an explanation.
Kim Jung Gi has been hailed a contemporary master of drawing. He has published sketchbooks that are fine examples of illustration/graphic design. In drawing circles he has become known for conducting live recorded question and answer sessions. Recently, he even conducted one at SDSU.
Find Your Black & White Illustration:
Taking some inspiration from the film on Kim Yung Gi, find a black and white illustration that helps to tell a story and is visually dynamic. Sci-Fi and Fantasy books, graphic novels, and video games are great places to search. Be sure to mention the name of the artist, title of the artwork (if possible) and where the illustration can be found in your thread.
Tell us why you chose this illustration.
What is it about the artwork that made an impression on you?
What do you feel makes it visually effective? Discuss some principles of design that are responsible for the visual impact created in the artwork.
Avoid going to Google for answers to the questions. Adding a little info from a source is OK, but I really want to hear your very own thoughts.
Part 1: Write a short essay that answers the above questions in detail. Additions to your thread resulting from any added research is fine. But remember to stay on topic and answer the questions.
