For our second project in Image, we are tasked with creating a museum poster for a dead historical character. I chose Jack Kerouac (bio here, inspiration board here). To explore the imagery we placed on the inspiration bored, we had to create 20 thumbnail sketches utilizing these symbols and various related images. The symbols I implemented into my sketches were limited mainly to a jug of wine, cigarettes, maps, book pages, a typewriter. All of these, I felt, exemplified Kerouac the best. I started sketching with the first images that came to mind and then further experimented with them by simplifying them or further pushing the design by adding different symbols or presenting the objects in a different way.
