I chose to do each of the illustrations on the same shade of saccharine pink cardstock with both the purpose of creating a unified visual aesthetic for each image and to evoke Molly's classic design signature. I created each illustration in graphite specifically to emulate molly's longstanding process and sewing techniques. Graphite is a material that takes a notoriously long time to master and to work with, so I thought it was a fitting replacement to the large format camera I so desperately intended on using. I did want to keep to my original idea of doing a photo album, but with the size of the cardstock I chose I felt it would be too distracting. So, I instead chose to mount each illustration onto a different sheet of fabric that reflects Molly's aesthetic.
I will be so bold as to say that I do not think I have ever challenged myself so much in one assignment. Even though the results are not what I originally intended them to be, I am very proud of myself for overcoming so many obstacles and producing imagery that I am happy to put my name on.
