For this piece, I was assigned to create an anthropomorphic illustration that told a story through it's characters. When creating this piece, I wanted to portray an uncomfortable situation in a very human-like situation. These wild animals are using public restroom stalls, and the giraffe, in particular, has found himself there at a particularly busy hour. Most humans have probably never experienced a situation like this, but looking at this piece gives the audience a sense of secondhand embarrassment, in which you imagine it happening to you.
The characters in this piece are cartoon style and child-like. The colors are vibrant and the strokes are fairly thin. The piece is quite comical, but also approachable.
The final project is done both digitally and with watercolor. The instructor of this class in which the project was assigned got a good laugh out of seeing the final piece. Being a rather tall man, he found it relatable.
