Dead for a Day

[Editorial Illustration]
[Red Dot: Junior Award]


SCAD Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, Georgia, USA


Irena Freitas, SCAD

The inspiration for this design was a newspaper article about a woman who pretended to be dead in order to experience her own burial. Hence, the idea for a busy composition was born. First, the picture was drawn on paper, then scanned and coloured using Photoshop, and finally reworked with water colours and coloured pencils. Due to this combination of techniques and the interspersed text elements, the illustration presents its contents in a particularly lively manner.
