The Style Card...

My style card for the 'A Dog's Afterlife' film was a Falmouth Illustration Student, so my group had a lot of free reign on this in comparison to the style for 'Chasing Birds'. We took a look at past Illustration students blogs and websites and came to the conclusion that Rachel Gilbert's style was best suited to our story.

Above is my attempt at reproducing some of Rachel Gilbert's work. Her style uses simplified forms, soft watercolours and rough textured brush strokes. The limbs of her characters are very skinny and tend to taper towards the end, whereas the torsos are quite boxy.

Below are some images of her work, as you can see, she does incorporate more detailed line work into her illustrations, such as the 'One Who Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest' book cover.
