Full page illustration + headline made for Editorial Illustration class.
For this assignment I chose the article " Hey!Parents, leave those kids alone ", written by Hanna Rosin for the april 2014 issue of The Atlantic magazine.
Starting with 12 thumbnails, I explored the idea set in the article that children should play more freely and take more risks in order to achieve a healthy growth. The original photo for the article, took by Peter Yang was really inspiring and a good start point.
After that, I picked the third thumbnail for polish as black and white sketch.
With some feedback of my classmates, professor and friends, I refined the lineart, this time, digitally.
For the color comps, I chose three distinctive hours of the day, always trying to get the feeling of "revolution" and "childish epicness".
While I was working in the second comp as my final, I designed the headline for the article. I found that the font called Paintcans fitted perfectly with the purpose and also worked as a great reference to the cover of the album "The Wall" by Pinky Floyd, where the catch phrase of the article probably came.
