After I was happy with my ideas, I transferred my illustrations into a digital medium, because I felt that would create the cleanest result. First, I created the table for my days, then I drew over my initial sketches to create clean illustrations for each day. The font for the text that I chose was one I felt would most match the type of illustrations I would be making.
I wanted the coloring to be very simple. I chose two cool colors (blue and green) to stand out against the warm tone of the background or paper, then I alternated them as a foundational color for each illustration. After doing so, I chose to color the character’s shirt the “opposite” of the background color (if the background is green, then his shirt is blue and vice versa). But in order to accentuate his “daily novel activity”, I chose to incorporate a completely different color for each day. For example, for Friday I colored in teal for the woman’s hair because she is the focal point, and for Thursday, I colored in the purple paint, because that is the important action of that composition.
