This is the cover of a book I created in two days. It is more of a scrapbook and I am not sure if I am proud of it or not. I used many many many different mediums, collage, photoshop, photocopy, letters from old newpapers... so it turned into a little bit of a mish mash.
The idea was to illustrate ballet steps. The terms are all in french and I wanted to illustrate the meaning of the words in french and play with the typography.
Couronne - Crown
Frappe - Move fast
Chasse - Chase
Battement - Beaten
I am finally getting into this project. With only two weeks to go I should be really! I am excited to go and visit Freed the ballet shoe makers on wednesday to draw and take photos.
Do you think the fact I have bought four pairs of shoes in two weeks and am focusing my project on ballet shoes is pointing me in the direction of having a serious shoe habit? Or is it the fact I am working in a shoe shop and its influence is seeping into my brain?
Until next time
