Illustrators in Dubai
Updated: Jun 29, 2020
Few months ago , i asked the French illustrator Olivier Bonhomme About his work and how he approach his illustration
What piece of advise can you give me to make illustrations more symbolic ?
A piece of advice? I mean, maybe trying to see a link between an idea and the most iconic visual reminiscence that is related to it
It's a complex thing
Startpoint is to master a bit the art of figurative representation, to have a grammar, a vocabulary, an "understandable" visual speech for the audience
then, focusing on the composition
build the image with precise lines, dynamics, graduation
why this element should be more important than this one in my illustration?
Then it's a big work of self-consciousness and visual memory
"When I think about love, for example, what is the first image I see ?" But not a "cliché", something really personal
Building an illustration with sense is like a game of chess with yourself and the collective thoughts
you have to match both
I hope this will help you
