Rendering and VCD 2015 planning

I spent this afternoon working on my marker rendering skills and planning some work for next year, for the delivery of the VCE Visual Communication Design subject I teach. I'm planning on sharing my new approach to Unit 3 - VCD in the not-too-distant future. I think many teachers get stuck on this Unit (particularly Outcome 1) since the introduction of the new VCD Study Design. I'll be posting more about that soon. Here's a little snippet of my work from this afternoon:


Also, tonight I've been playing with the new version of Adobe Illustrator (CC 2014), making some flat-style illustrations of my favourite design tools. This is a small sample (below) of what I've done so far. The final poster will be available as a print to purchase, but there are many more details to be added! I'll post the final design when its complete.
