Bycicle helmet Illustration by Luciano Bove ACCD
Dear friends,
yesterday I went to check all my old sketches and art works from school times untill today and I decided starting today to post about some of my Art Center College of Design art works and also about other sketches and illustrations like when I was in Fiat and teaching at design schools.
Here the first one.
It is about a bycicle helmet illustration done with mixed media, I remember the assignement was about choosing a bycicle company or brand (Peugeot in my case) and make a benchmark about its products and design philosophy. Then design a bycicle helmet for the choosen brand and make a final rendering or illustration of it.
My Peugeot bycicle helmet had a very aero and simple elegant shape, a nice red Ferrari glossy color and to make the illustration I decided to:
-use a cold medium gray Canson paper
-Chartpak markers
-chalk with no use of spray fixative to make sure the cream light color would be saturated and look shiny, application of chalck straight on paper and with my fingers to saturate color.
-white gauche for final highlights
-color pencils for some details
It was 1988!
