Have you ever thought about sketching or illustrating jell-o and gelatin molds? Well, I haven’t and it was quite a big surprise when I read about it in this month’s mini assignment! How on earth do you illustrate jell-o? In my case I did it just the way I usually work: Invest a good amount of time in some research, doodle and sketch till you get a feeling for shape and material, scan the best sketches and bring them into the best software ever, Adobe Illustrator. Here I place my sketches and create clean paths on several layers above. I have made the experience that in the end I am much faster when I really invested enough time in sketching and exactly know where to draw paths. Here you can see the final result which was to place the jell-o molds onto bolt fabric. Below you also find some coordinating patterns and some illustrations which I call “Gelatine Garden”.
