A Study of Mixed Media Creative Artwork Designed with Computer Software
A case study was conducted to explore the mixed media creative artwork, a picture book hand-drawn by an 8-year old child. First, the documentary analysis of materials related to children's picture books was conducted to understand the features of materials and the essence of stories. After rounds of discussion teaching, the parents guided the author to create a story, characters, items, and sets, and to arrange colors. This process took 6 months. 14 hand-drawn works were completed. Then those drawings were scanned with Photoshop and the layout was arranged with Adobe Illustrator. Finally, discussions of the problems encountered during the process of creation were conducted and suggestions were proposed.
