Another dip into the large sketch collection from various illustration projects, in the Kevin Sprouls Sketch Folder. Because my teacher told me to save them!
This time, I’ve got samplings which fall into three categories: Conceptual Illustration, How-to, and Metaphorical Illustration. Let’s take the last first.
Metaphorical Illustration Sketch Collection
Next, a client commissioned me to draw a set of five figures involving tree imagery.

Below, the idea of finding one’s way in a difficult environment.

How To Illustration Sketch Collection
Finally, the How-to section. I likely did this sketch on a commission for Rodale Press, Prevention magazine, perhaps. Six steps to a Facial Massage. Take a Deep Breath — RELAX!
