I'm taking a class called Personal Viewpoints this semester. The class is being taught by three different illustrators, each for about five weeks at a time. Currently Jessica Hische is the teacher and it's really awesome. Here's the first part of what I have done in the class. It's a book cover for the Wizard of Oz. I think the roosters are my favorite part of the painting (well one of my favorite parts). The picture is a little washed out, but I'll post a better image of the final final cover when I'm done. I'm working on hand drawn type for the cover of it this week as well as patterned end pages. It's very exciting. I love type and I'm eager to learn more about it.
