Guitar Center Catalog


     This was for a project in Illustration where we had to redesign a catalog.  I really wanted to do a loose style and I thougt a guitar catalog would be perfect for that.  But it seems like the more you redraw something, the more strict and dull it becomes.  My first drawing was really expressive, and I liked it.  I wish I started straight from that and not deal with all of the comps and sketches.  But tha's not the Illustration process, is it?  That's why stuff outside of school is sometimes easier to work on.. and I end up liking it more.

Anyways, about the piece itself,  it was done in watercolor and touched up digitally (the colored swirls mainly).
