Prince Andrea Casiraghi !

A Guide to Meeting & Possibly Marrying Prince Andrea of Monaco !
The assignment was to create a 'how-to manual' & the format & the subject matter was up to the student.
I decided to do a card format & I painted the portrait for the front of the card with gouache. As for the little drawings on the back & the borders, I drew them with ink then scanned them in & colored them digitally.
The size of the card is 7.5" x 5.5". 
If you know enough about the Prince this creepy instructional card would sound funny !















UPDATE: same piece .. different color palette !

Fishy Business !



For portfolio class we were given the option to come up with our own assignment & I chose to try an editorial piece. 
It is for an article in the 'Family Pets' pages of 'Parenting: early years' magazine. The article explains steps & tips for having an aquarium, picking fish, & decorating the tank.
'Fishy Business' is written by Jennifer Kelly Geddes in 'Parenting: early years' magazine, March 2010 issue.
