Page Design

First up - The Day the Sky Fell Again. I created this illustration for a mock Newspaper Feature Page. The article was about a new theory that suggested that a meteor shower, similar to the one which occurred during the age of the dinosaurs, repeated itself during the Ice Age and was partly responsible for these animals' extinction.

It was created in Photoshop, using Watercolor Brushes. Below the illustration you can see how it would look in the feature page, which I also designed.

I took the original article and designed the page layout so that it looked like an article worth reading. I wanted it to complement the illustration and vice versa. All the choices made during the creation of this piece were based on that basic idea.
