Some observational drawings that I did this summer to start illustrating the book Terra Incognita by Vladimir Nabokov. Put simply, the story is about three explorers that get lost in the jungle after their guides desert them. The narrator of the story is suffering from a sickness and becomes increasingly ill as it goes along, and he starts suffering from hallucinations that imply he's actually in a sick bed in hospital rather than the jungle. The other two explorers start arguing and consequently have a fight and kill each other, leaving the narrator to die alone. The reader is left to basically question which reality is which.
The start of second year has been really busy and good so far, we've been given lots of tasks to help us think about our stories in different ways. The first task was to illustrate 4 little books from four different perspectives of the story, the second was to illustrate everything from the story on a big A1 sheet of paper, the third is to create a doll from one of the characters and the fourth is to create a diorama of a chosen environment from our story. I'm really excited about trying out the 3D tasks as it's something that I'm not all that familiar with doing.
