I looked into illustrations including brains and flowers to show the 2 topics of my booklet, mental health and youth. From what I’ve found this idea has been used multiple times, in various ways, but mostly with similar uses. I want to push the idea, I don’t want to have something overdone for my cover illustration as it may put people off.
The following 4 images worked a bit more creatively with the idea and I really like the colour palette of the first image. Very innocent and youthful, no over vibrant colours.
The following images work with vintage collage, the aesthetic is very old fashioned and the artists have repurposed old diagrams and illustrations to make something new. The use of diagrams is a bit too medical for my booklet, I want the cover to empathise the emotional context of the content.
I will try and experiment with how much information I can take away from the visual of the mind, -not including imagery of brain or skull. This will help to make the imagery more conceptual and not as obvious.
