The first step was to pick and expand upon a prompt from the book, How to be an Explorer of the World by Keri Smith. I chose a prompt that asks the reader to create a portrait of their city in which everything they encounter is magical, exaggerated or slightly altered from reality. Then I decided on how I would reflect upon the Danish culture. These two prompts drove me towards a solution where I would take pictures (which represents how my classmates experienced the trip) and then draw on top of them (which represents how I experienced that trip). The drawings also played into the idea of the simplicity in Danish design as well as their playful approach to projects.
The final deliverable of this journal was a sixty page book filled with photography and illustration. There Is also a side component of six animated gifs of my favorite pages within the book to give my imagination an extra bit of reality.
This journal featured 60 different photographs with drawings. The images above are some of my favorite images throughout the book.
Above are the six animated gifs I created to accompany the physical journal
