For this project I’ve been inspired by 18th century artist and biologist Ernest Haeckel, who produced beautiful illustrations of macro and micro shots of organic matter, such as marine life, flowers and insects. His attention to detail and rich colour use helped me develop my own colour palette and drawing inspiration. I will be producing manipulation pieces, combined with print for high-end fashion.
Pictured is the ‘Macro Micro’ mood board, completed as part of my Major Project. Using trend-forecasting sites such a WGSN was helpful in generating a colour palette and style ideas for a contemporary mood board.
