CREATIVE VISUAL MIND MAPS: Many students begin with a ‘mood board’ along these lines: a collection overlaying images, materials and text. This example has string and other items connecting different parts. This could then be photographed and annotated further.
Collecting, ripping and arranging a range of images, textures and surfaces can provide a creative base upon which to write and draw further ideas. These pages from a visual journal explore ideas related to illustration, fairytales and mythology.
