So one of my projects for Advanced Print Media was to create an image for any article we wanted in any magazine. My favorite subjects are scientific, especially stuff involving disease. I ended up finding an article online concerning the Black Death and how its genome has changed very little since it swept across the world.
I instantly knew I wanted to do something with the plague doctors, I mean what is a cooler image than that?
After working through some of the composition, the gouache was added!
Hand painting some text on acetate and working out some kinks after a critique....
And voila! Added some of the article and did a bit of digital finagling to get everything lookin nice!Spawn of Medieval Black Death Bug Still Roam the Earth. Give it a read!
