The Daughters of the Moon is a poetic story that explores a consumerist society in a city that lived long ago. When the city becomes disgusted by the aging moon, they throw it in the junkyard, leaving the daughters of the moon to restore it.
With such an imaginative story, each page was illustrated to emphasize on the major events taken place as the reader progresses through the book.
Sketchbook, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Procreate
This project helped me pay close attention to file sizing and the importance of measurement with publication pieces. I began the illustrative process by measuring the book layout and determining where I would like my pictures to be displayed. Once I was happy with the frame sizes and how it would interact with the text, I then drew those measurements on paper and began sketching within those frames. Once the illustrations were finished, I transferred them to procreate and then Illustrator. The longest process was the prepping and measuring but by doing so, it made my images precise and organized when placed in InDesign and the overall project run smoothly.
With more time, I would've liked to illustrate more spreads for this story or done a completely new story from Italo Calvino to accompany this project.
