Josephine Baker- Series based on missionary work

Josephine Baker

Josephine Baker

Josephine

The final project for my Concept &Metaphors (Illustration 2) class. Create a series of 3 images for one of the given topics below. The topic I choose was a "Series based on missionary work"

I choose Josephine Baker, an African-American entertainer and actress.

This series shows Josephine the Actress, Josephine the Solider, Josephine the Adopted Mother.

I guess with these I was trying to get away from my sketchy style of drawing, kinda worked.

These are beautiful. I like how, although the series have stylistic similarities, there are stylistic differences for each piece. The military one especially (which also is the furthest removed from your sketchy style. I like your sketchy work too. It would be interesting to see more of those solid blocks of color mixed with sketchy.
