For our first sketchbook assignment we were told to pick 5 objects that have importance to us, and memorialize them through drawings, and words in a 2 page spread in our sketchbook. We were told to use a black pen and 1 colored pencil. The 5 objects that I chose to memorialize are as follows: A palm that my friend Andrew gave me before he moved away to California, a faith bracelet I made on a mission trip, the scarf that my best friend gave me for Christmas, and the teddy bear "Big One" that I have had since I was 5 years old that my parents gave me. finally an eagle balancing toy that reminds me that life is a delicate balance that is made worthwhile when you can work hard and have fun too.
For this assignment we were told to embody our first week back from winter break in a 2 page layout in our sketchbooks using the page layout from a magazine. This includes the size and placement of pictures, and size and style of text as well. The layout I chose for mine was based on an ad for Jimmy Choo shoes. This I found in the 2010 February issue of InStyle Magazine.
