The Lamp Magazine
about the project
The Lamp is the quarterly magazine sent out by Delta Zeta Sorority to its members. For this issue, the feature story was about one of its members who survived a Japanese Internment Camp in WWII. They had a few photos for reference but none of them were quality enough to be a cover photo, so the went to the next best thing, illustration.
In collaboration with Tria Designs
Illustration is a great way to get around the challenge of not having high-res photography.
Mockup given by Tria Designs to provide some art direction.
Before moving forward with a more detailed illustration, I got approval on a rough sketch that gives an idea of composition and color scheme.
After receiving feedback to make it feel less heavy, I removed some crosshatching and lightened some colors.
