The Bone Portfolio

Finished 2 days before it was due (yay no cramming!), I am happy with how it turned out. 

I stuck with my first idea of creating a catalog selling bones. So each page about the a certain bone had to be like an advertisement. The most difficult part about creating this wasn't necessarily the drawings or the layout, but writing copy. I now have a giant respect for copywriters, it is not a simple task. I tried to channel my inner Don Draper and Peggy Olson throughout this ordeal.

Most of the design was inspired by old Eaton's catalogs and those old mail-order ads found in vintage papers or comics. I happened to have owned a few very very very old comics with those ads inside, so I kept referencing them.

The skull, vertebrae, scapula and pelvis drawn from life. The rest are referenced from several text books such as: Classic Human Anatomy by Valerie L. Winslow, Complete Guide to Life Drawing by Gottfried Bammes, and Figure Drawing: Design and Invention by Michael Hampton.

Enjoy and don't forget to subscribe to Osteon's!
