Tarleea Crain, Director
Feature: Point Leo
In partnership with Monash University &
Point Leo Foreshore Park & Reserve.
At only one hour away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne, Point
Leo is a coastal paradise steeped rich in natural and human history.
From the indigenous peoples of the Kulin nation to the keen surfers
that dot the shoreline, many have enjoyed the wonders of the surrounding native flora and fauna.
In 2015, Wild Melbourne partnered
with both Point Leo Foreshore Park & Reserve and Monash University to reinvigorate the campgrounds with the use of novel interpretive and
interactive displays. Such displays enrich the visitors' experience and foster an enhanced appreciation of the local environment and its conservation. I was lucky enough to work on this project.
Illustrations were displayed on outdoor signs in the shape of surfboards and posters for an activity centre.
Illustrations were hand drawn and coloured digitally.
A guide map of Point Leo and the position of where you are situated was placed on the nose of each surfboard. These maps were created in Illustrator.
The entire board was then designed in InDesign and packaged for large-scale print.
Toolsof the trade
Traditional meets technological!
Traditional pencil, pen & ink, pastels, gouache, and watercolour have been the tools of the trade since the start of the profession. Each with their unique markings for an unlimited amount of styles.
Fast forward to the present day and all of these wonderful tools have been digitised and even the paper.
Paul uses a Wacom Cintiq 22HD.
These devices aren’t a magic solution, you still need to know how to draw, but they do save time and materials which lowers cost for both the illustrator & client.
The Wacom Cintiq works with software like Photoshop & Illustrator, while using a pressure sensitive pen and screen to emulate traditional pens & paintbrushes...without the mess.
The process of an illustrator usually starts in the draft & concept stage. For many jobs, it is here the actual pencil does its job best. Ideas and concepts seem to flow better when one has no distractions other than a piece of paper.
