This was a personal project that I just finished last semester at UQAM. I created a personal book filled with portraits, my thoughts, quotes and songs of people who inspire me to draw. Music is the main reason why I started drawing in the first place. I am naturally attracted to somber things especially in music. The Dark Hour is the time in the evening where I enter my own little creative world.
The cover is a stiff cotton that is semi-transparent with black stitching on the spine. Each sheet was printed on Bienfang Graphics 360 paper on an Epson printer (thanks Mike). Bienfang paper has a beautiful transparency which favored the theme very nicely. The sheets were each folded in half to create an overlay effect. I also printed some text in between the sheets for a little mystery.
This was a full semester project that I just completed in my last semester of University (UQAM). The book is a collection of drawings of people I would see in the Montreal metro. I came up with 26 adjectives and matched it up with each person in alphabetical order. Each person has a fictional thought to accompany their proper adjective. Check out the phrases and the rest of the project here!
These were illustrations completed in Gerard Dubois' class for the Inquirer Magazine in Philadelphia. The mandate was to create a piece for the Summer Fiction issue. I usually do not use this much color in my work but I thought it was appropriate this time.
