STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, but the addition of Art (A) morphs it into STEAM. This conference hosted by the University of San Diego gets a fresh face for the fall semester!
I used a three-part process for the illustrations. First, paint the basic shapes in gouache on cardboard or white board. Second, upload the base colors into photoshop and use organic shapes and textures, such as feathers, cement and tree bark, to create visual effects mimicking fabric and chain mail. Lastly, merge all elements together into a finished illustration!
