Introduction of to Decorative illustration through the eyes of Si Scott

Typography is usually carefully crafted and constructed. It is the architecture of the 2-Dimensional world. Usually when we think of architecture we think of buildings or houses. Typography or letter forms house ideas, they are the bridge of communication. Some ideas like some bridges are more fancy than others. A way of making things fancier or more "ornate" is to add ornamentation. This is done through lines or shapes.

Even organic creatures can be made ornate or decorative. Not all decorative art has ornamentation, but the elaborate line work of Si Scott seems to be his signature style.

You can even make whole letters or phrases decorative.

You should try drawing the Sea Horse for extra credit.

FInal Gig Poster is Due...

Your original image should be placed upon 9in by 12in paper. (You may work larger if necessary.)

There should be a 1in border around the image. 

The image should reflect all the design principles as defined by your syllabus and gone over in class. 

(A particular focus will be on value since it was the major theme this unit.)
You will be graded on how you used reference.

Your final image must be reflective of the band that you’re presenting for.
