Many illustrators struggle with developing their style in the beginning and pushing themselves away from being so literal. In this class we will use a cat as our subject matter and explore techniques for creating a stylized illustration. First well look at contemporary working artists illustrations of cats and break down the stylistic elements. Then well chart out the different ways all of the elements of a cat and brainstorm how they can be stylized. Next well sketch from a photograph of a cat then remove the reference photos and create a plan to make several more stylized sketches. Once we have a sketch we like we will select a color palette and medium to finalize the illustration.
