Animal Iconography - Spring 2022

Animal Iconography
The goal of this project was to take an animal and break it down piece by piece to it's most iconic attributes. The goal was to go from realistic, to an icon, to completely abstract. 
The first step in the process was to create at least 50 sketches experimenting with the design. Here you can see my process as I figure out, through trial and error, what does and does not work about each sketch. I like to make small notes to myself in the moment so I don't forget what I'm thinking for later. It helps me keep myself on track.
Eventually, these were the sketches I decided to continue into Illustrator with. They were my favorite sketches I had and I wanted to continue playing with them more digitally.
The final product:
