Description

I will create a coffee table book called, Random: A Collection of Facts, that features a randomized collection of facts each paired with an illustration in the flat-art style. This book will explore a wide range of topics such as animal life, historical events, culture, human behavior, and even facts about the solar system and its planets. For readers, this book serves to inform, intrigue, and entertain, as well as create an attractive and functional art piece for the home. Random will be a square hardcover book with a bold yet neutral cover to match a wider range of home decor. Inside, an exploration of color and shapes within the full page illustrations will take readers on a journey they can interact with. The facts will be pulled from multiple sources and categories and then sorted throughout the book so no two categories are close together, and I will construct the imagery from the beginning phase of sketching all the way until the end. On top of the facts and illustrations, I will include an introduction, dedication, and source pages. Overall, Random will serve as a possible draft and jumping off point for future books in a series, as well as an entrance into the publishing community.
