Introduction from Anji
• Glue stick
• Magazines/newspapers or images from the internet
When starting an illustration, I go through newspapers etc to find some interesting words or images to use.
I started by cutting out an eye gluing it on the paper and outlining a face.
I then used a pastel to mark out a mouth and shaded it using a watercolour pencil.
I then used a watercolour pencil to shade in the face and around the face using a pastel.
The final illustration shows the effects of using the different art mediums and the cut out when creating illustrations.
