This illustration project responds to a Massey University brief to illustrate the story Commuting by Janice Marriott, formatted to be suitable for the School Journal. Bright, inviting colours and playful rough textures create engaging imagery for a 9 to 11 year old audience.
Bold linework is combined with subtle halftone textures added in areas to add depth and complexity. The text follows a clean asymmetrical layout and is surrounded by large areas of negative space to make the narrative easy to follow for children. A green and blue colour palette distinguishes imagined scenes from the pink and purple reality scenes, which are tied together by the bright yellow used in both.
