The Lamp Magazine
about the project
The Lamp is Delta Zeta Sorority’s quarterly magazine distributed to its members. For this issue, the feature story was about one of its members who survived a Japanese Internment Camp in WWII. The few reference photos available were not high resolution enough to be a cover photo, so illustration provided a desirable alternative.
In collaboration with Tria Designs

Illustration offers a work-around in the absence of high-res photography.
Mockup given by Tria Designs to provide some art direction.
The first step in the process is presenting a rough sketch that gives an idea of composition and color scheme.
The next step is illustrating a more detailed version. After receiving feedback that this one felt too heavy, I removed some crosshatching and lightened some colors.
