Creating content for e-learning has become a great way for me to grow as an artist because it gives me many unique design challenges.
I like to do as much research as I can on each subject before I start creating an image.
For example, if it is a historical figure, I like to read about details in their life such as the environment they lived in, what kind of personality they had and their flaws. My idea is to bring the person to life for the viewer to meet them, to give them as much visual information as I can to tell a story though an image. Even if the student does not know what some of the details represent, maybe they will learn new information and make a connection later, remembering that they saw it somewhere.
