here's a project i did this september called "before the record" for my illustration class. the assignment was to illustrate a Guinness World Record holder in a moment of their early years that fortells their future accomplishment/obsession/extraordinary capacity for that later achievement. i chose michel lotito, record holder for the strangest diet, who can eat 2 lbs of metal a day.
this is acrylic paints on a sheet of metal with magnets of the characters and objects.
for the magnets, i painted on bristol and used a sheet of magnet with sticky backing.
