AI 32 Live Cover Project

The last Sunday of October, I was invited to be a part of the AI 32 Live Cover Project from American Illustration.
The subject was ‘Human Figure’ directed under Richard Turley, creative director at Bloomberg Businessweek,and we(about twenty for Sunday, total forty-five artists, illustrators, art directors, and designers) got seven hours including lunch time to finish 10-15 books.

I decided to draw from the live models who came that day, and the theme of my books was ‘Comic Panels’. So the left side had a part of human body, and the right side had a speech balloon.

I finished 12 books in total. Here’s the images.

Everyone who was participated in this project was very serious because of the limited time, so I had to continuously sip wine for making my hands faster. And of course, it helped me to be done in time!

Thanks again to AI, and hope some people who received my books were happy! 🙂
