Lilla Roger's self paced MATS A class had a surprise live review assignment in which we were asked to create a cover title page for the second edition of Uppercase Magazine's Surface Pattern Design Guide. Lilla and Janine Vangool, publisher, editor and designer of Uppercase Magazine, would select from the class gallery and review pieces for the class. I loved the theme and magazine title page concept. Magazine design and editorial illustration is so fun! Above is my final piece. I used illustrations I had originally created for my Botanical Sketchbook pattern shown below.
It was fun experimenting with the photographic elements with the line drawings. I liked playing and mixing these two themes together. The line drawings were based a lot on my pressed flowers collection shown below.
