Starting to look at Editorial illustration // Encounter


This was my first initial exploration of editorial illustration since the project last year, my first initial article was about mass murderers and how more often than not they are not clinically insane and how this affected the punishments of their crimes. I wanted to explore this topic through a limited colour palette since I thought that it would help create a more logical and obvious representation of the topic instead of being too graphic and intense.  I think by using a more hand-rendered aesthetic it made the representation feel more humane than a lot of the more traditional style editorial illustrations that often have a more clean cut and sterile feeling to the images.
