I have a collection of random ads from magazines and books so I grabbed some and started creating line drawings, like this one:

In design studio class I am taking with Jill Bliss we are doing a project where we take found objects and create a brand around them. I added old playing cards that I have to this illustration, as a decoration and background:

This has really been fun for me because I really haven’t gotten to do any illustration or experimentation in school this year because the focus has been on learning Graphic Design techniques and programs. I feel really inspired so I think I will do many more of these kind of illustrations for this project.. Can’t wait!
