Lore Mondragon
The Ocean

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
Create a series of illustrations inspired by the journal writings of my friend Matthew Jurjonas while working in a fishing boat in Alaska. The writings are very deep and emotional, dark and dream-like. The images must represent various emotions described in the writings: solitude, coldness, silence, fear, pain, freedom and peacefulness.

How was the illustration used:
Digital portfolio piece

How did you make this work:
Since I did this project in a noisy city, I watched a few documentaries and videos to capture shapes, colors and the overall feeling of the ocean. I took what emotionally stood the most out of the writings. I approached each illustration with a realistic look, but also added details that made it feel almost like a dream.
