This small series is based on a couple of school assignments that I completed about a year ago. Inspiration for all of them came from how do I recreate or create artwork that is inspired by work that I read/view everyday. The International Astronomy poster was a dedication to the beautiful posters of Simon C. Page and can be seen here : http://simoncpage.co.uk/blog2009/10/01/international-year-of-astronomy-2009-posters/
. The trading cards were a look at artists that I look up to and how I would apply their techniques to improve my work. Finally, the book cover is for a wonderful book called, In Praise Of Shadows
by Jun'ichiro Tanizaki which is a very fascinating look on Japanese culture.
