B.A. (Bachelor of Arts)
School of Art
In accompaniment with my final portfolio for the senior project class, I will create a supplemental writing for each of the twelve illustrations included in my portfolio, documenting my progress and purpose in creating the illustrations. These writings will include intentions for my work, the meaning behind the artwork, and the processes required to complete the pieces. I intend for these documents to help viewers better understand and appreciate the final illustrations as well as the thought and effort behind them. I will also include research into the artwork and methods of past book illustrators in order to better understand how the process of book illustration has transformed over time and help viewers see the significance of book illustration as a form of art.
