During our second semester’s Illustration class under AJ Omandac, we were tasked to interpret a nursery rhyme of our choice through a style of illustration. I decided to do a Victorian fashion piece interpreting the rhyme “Baa Baa Black Sheep”, particularly the line, one for my dame.
To create the illustration, I first drew a sketch on a piece of paper, scanned it, and then traced the drawing on Illustrator. I then put the gradient background and the damask patterns using Photoshop.
I learned the squiggly line technique from Sir AJ, which I used to create the wool texture.
I had so much fun creating this project because I love “designing” dramatic period costumes. Maybe next time I’ll do Humpty Dumpty or Jack and Jill!
