Typographic Annotation Heart
Its Valentines day soon, this is my alternative valentines day illustration. Look after your typographic annotation illustration, inspired by keeping your heart healthy with a few simple simple steps in the change of your lifestyle. I signed up for the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton cycle ride this year. I enjoy cycling, and I have always thought about taking part, and much of that is being organised and signing up early. I guess this is a Valentines day alternative illustration and a keep your heart fit and healthy double illo.
I made a quick search about advice on how to keep your heart healthy some of which is common knowledge, these include, Get active, Dont Smoke, Watch your weight, Less Stress, Eat Oily Fish Sleep More, Eat Healthy Ditch the Salt and Get your 5 a Day. I drew stylised hand drawn typography for each of the headings around the main drawing of the heart. Once all the headings and the spot illustrations for them were drawn in, I wrote the accompanying annotations for the spot illustrations and headings, some of which are serious thoughts on keeping your heart healthy, and I combined them with a humour.
The concept of the illustration was to create a dense typographic annotated illustration with a varied mix of hand drawn illustrated drawings as well as combining the drawings with a mix of different typographic styles, injects with a a serious but humours message.
