My team on Second Life<3

My team on Second Life<3 | Illustrious Illustration | Scoop.it
Adriana Bolívar's insight:

This is the team I worked with in the illustrated story, we were hanging in a game named Second Life.

The first blond girl is Claudia, the one on her side is me, the other one is Vanessa and the last one is Daniela :)


We had so much fun in this game and in this class! 

We get to explore and interact with a totally different world.
I hope you guys try this game because you can have a great time while you learn about other people's interests and cultures (this is a game that everyone in the world plays).

Hope you enjoy it!

By the way... this is a real picture of my team :)

Matt Robertson shortlisted for Picture This competition - The Advocate Art Blog

Matt Robertson shortlisted for Picture This competition - The Advocate Art Blog | Illustrious Illustration | Scoop.it
Matt Robertson shortlisted for Picture This competition.
Adriana Bolívar's insight:

This article is about an illustrator named Matt Robertson, he entered the Waterstone’s ‘Picture This’ illustration competition and even though he didin’t win, he got really far in the competition.

I like this article because his illustrations were about the fairytale “The Beauty and the Beast” wich is one of my favorite stories; another thing I really liked, is the fact that his dad died when he enter the competition and he still went through all the stress, because he realle wanted to win, and I think that’s very brave.

Ernesto Paz HIGH MAGAZINE'S EDITOR

Ernesto Paz HIGH MAGAZINE'S EDITOR | Illustrious Illustration | Scoop.it
Adriana Bolívar's insight:

1. Could you please define Graphic Design in your own words?

To me graphic design is an art that has a purpose and it has to transmit a message.

 

2. What influenced you to pursue graphic design?

I always love magazines and since I can remember I wanted to work in one, so I studied graphic design in order to become a magazine editor.

 

3. Could you please describe the educational process required to become a graphic designer?

Well you first have to go to college because even if you try to learn everything by yourself, there are a lot of important things that only the teacher’s experience can teach you, after thar, you will learn by your own professional experience.

 

4. What are the skills you need to be a good graphic designer?

To know about everything, not only graphic design stuff, but also history, culture and the way people behave and think.

 

5. What job considerations were you looking for after you completed your education?

Obviously I wanted a job at a magazine because it was the reason why I studied graphic design in the first place.

 

6. What's something of your school life that you enjoy the most?

To be able to make mistakes (he laughs) because after you start a job, those mistakes cost you money and time.

 

7. From your perspective, what is the most difficult part of being a graphic designer student?

I think is the fact that you either get good grades or good sleep, because having those together is almost impossible.

 

8. What are your plans for the future?

I want to distribute my magazine in other countries not just in Venezuela/Panama.

 

9. Point out your most personally gratifying moment in graphic designer school.

I don’t have a specific moment, but every time I did something right, my teachers told me that I was going to be a good professional, and that’s just awesome because it gives you hope.

 

10. Why would you recommend graphic design as a career?

Well, to me it has the perfect combination between creativity and knowledge, so I think is a “full career”.

The Process Behind Good Illustration - Smashing Magazine

“Art” is something philosophers have spent centuries trying to define, sadly with no satisfactory result (a debate that is far beyond the scope of this article). But illustration, while it covers a broad range of image-making, does have very distinct meanings, and it is very different from justartwork.

Adriana Bolívar's insight:

What I really love about this article is the fact that they explain the difference between "art" and "illustration".
This is very important because a lot of people think that they are the same thing.
Here they explain how illustration is a tool, it has a purpose and is intentional. When you make an illustration, you have to think in its color and shape because, for example, a violet character is different from a green one, it has different feelings and different personalities.
I think you should read it, so you will see how the "illustration world" is not like drawing or painting, is different and is a job!!

what men live by book activity.pdf | Illustrious Illustration | Scoop.it
Adriana Bolívar's insight:

My team was made up by Claudia Montiel, Daniela Franchi, Vanessa Amesti and I.

Claudia, Daniela and Vanessa were in charge of the books illustrations (“What men live by” part 5, 6 and 7) and I did the Exercise and the Credit Page, I also helped them by making the backgrounds.

 

As a group: we worked pretty well together in this assignment, specially because we all love so much being graphic designers.
We shared our ideas and tried to make the best job we could; we read the book together and made all the illustrations together as well, so we hope you will love it as much as we do!
We expect to make big projects as a team in the future because we really loved this experience.

 

This work was made in a design software named Adobe Illustrator which is the program designers use the most. The backgrounds used in the text page were made in a software named Adobe Photoshop with a Wacom´s help (a Wacom is an illustration tablet that you connect to your computer, it works like a mouse but you can add pressure as if you were drawing with a pencil).
In order to make these illustrations, we read the book first so we could know what was supposed to do; we used a trending style named Flat Design and we add some degradations to make it more attractive.

I tried to pick some words that I have never heard before and included them in the activity like a vocabulary exercise, that’s why I did an alphabet soup and I added the illustrations of those words, this way people can learn the meaning of this words without a dictionary.

I really enjoyed this activity because it gave me an excuse to use my Wacom and to do some illustrations, and as you know, I love illustrations and that’s why a chose it as my specific topic on scoop it.

 

These are all the illustrations we made https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BzHFWOhpqW7wfjl3ZDVEWGVjTndSTy1Ub2RxcjhwYlVBOEJaTjBhRUhYUXJlODkxVDhnQmM&usp=sharing&nbsp; :)

Illustrative hosts Illustrative 08 in Zurich, Switzerland, an event which plays a critical part in the debate surrounding contemporary visual culture.
Adriana Bolívar's insight:

I love this article because teaches people that illustration is actually difficult and it’s awesome; you can do so much with it, but people just think that it’s made for kids books, and I love how they say everything that you can do with illustrations.

Illustration with Photoshop

Illustration with Photoshop | Illustrious Illustration | Scoop.it
Adriana Bolívar's insight:

Hi, I'm Adriana Bolívar. I'm 20 years old and I study Graphic Design at Urbe, in Maracaibo, Venezuela. 
I love editorial design, fashion and specially illustration. In my spare time I usually eat all I can find or play with my pets.
I hate when people say that my pets are messy or annoying, they're my pets and they can do what they want.

My dreams are tbecoming a succesful designer and travel around the world. 
I really love English, I think is very important (specially if you want to travel a lot like me), and I learned it by listening to music.
I feel motivated when I see young independent people with a succesful carreer. 


My best ability is creating something out of the blue and turning it into an amazing idea.
I actually work freelance so I don't get in touch with a lot of people in my carrer, but if I have to work with someone, I'll do it with a smile on my face.

I can't be mad or sad if I'm with my friends, they don't let me down and they are always making me laugh.

When I'm stuck with an idea and I need a "fresh start" I go to Pinterest or Tumblr and get inspired.

The best way to succed is to be yourself but always keeping in mind that other people matter, so you don't have to be mean with them.
