This journey I want to write about what is my idea behind this illustration. (Anyway I'm not success with this contest.)
For me this work has already done and I learned more about how to finish my (plenty of) ideas into an only one illustration.
The topic was UTOPIA, which I taught about the place that's UNREAL but Positive. (Dystopia would be in the other way round.)
So I started to think about an antique Atlas. Which is long time ago nobody knows how the world actually looks like.
As we see most old atlas are flat or half perspective half bird eyed view, in detailed, not really up to scale like today.
I love that because it's not real. It's charming though.
Then the word "BORDERLINE" came to me.
So I replaced all countries, destroyed all continents and mixed them up without geometry knowledge.
Redraw all with pen. I chose black & white to keep everything neutral and calm.
A few weeks ago I submitted my work to the “Taripulan illustrators contest”. The topic for this year was “Utopia”.
My illustration’s title is called “Utopian Atlas”.
*Click my illustration then you can visit the main website for this contest.
This year all illustrations are shown on their website before the jury. (I knew this after submission. Very happy about that. :))
My concept and inspiration for “Utopian Atlas” and the other illustrations, see from their website.
To search my illustration please use keyword “Suaysom” or “Utopian Atlas”
I'm very happy that my illustration was published in this book. :D
This year I don't have so much good news. I couldn't go or travel to somewhere easy like before and I found a way out to travel
(by drawing haha...) So This is one of my good news . I like this issue "Outer Space", because it's pure imagination and very creative.
