Print & Finishing Lab Assignment: Civil Anatomy

3 Attachments

As part of a Print & Finishing Lab course, we were given five different choices for an individual project option. I chose to create three illustrations using Photoshop which work together as a series, telling some sort of story or are united by a theme. The elements used in this illustration series must be copyright-free. I experimented with the collages, making use of a range of scanned images.

From looking over all of the copyright-free images I scanned, I wanted to create illustrations that displayed the skeleton or anatomy of the full animal. With luck, I was able to find pages with animal skeletons that fit closely to the animal illustrations - even if they came from different books. My strategy was to manipulate the images to fit almost exactly over one another as if you were seeing an x-ray of the animal. Since the theme was about anatomy and I was using old-looking imagery that reminded me of old civil war soldier portraits, I decided to call my series Civil Anatomy.
