This was an assignment for my conceptual illustration class. We chose an article and then had to conceptually illustrate the issue. The article I chose is about protecting animals. The animal humane society is trying to pass a law to make it illegal to sell puppies, kitties, or other animals out of parking lots or on our own. They want to pass this law to protect the animal because so many pets purchased this way are brought to the vet with diseases or other problems, and without knowing the animals origin the vet cannot always help.
At the same time however, if it is illegal to sell animals as the AHS is trying to prohibit, this won't stop people from letting their pets breed. This only means people will have to find some other way to get rid of the animal which in the end doesn't protect the animal at all.

I've been really bad at posting since school started back up after the Holiday Break. I'm in a conceptual illustration class this semester which is all new for me. I've only ever done narrative illustration. It's interesting thinking conceptually and trying to create an image with deep meaning hidden behind metaphors. These keys are a part of our first assignment. Each key has to represent a different mood. We had to choose from the following list: Humor/Levity, Foreboding, Despair, Age/Decay, Rebirth, Loneliness, Authority, and Trustworthiness. We could only use angle, color, and perspective to show our other objects. Can you guess which ones are which?

And the answer is....#1 Foreboding.  #2  Humor/Levity. #3 Decay. #4 Loneliness
