Illustration of a Mountain

This particular illustration was created for my Graphic Design 1 class at Wayne State. The project was meant to go with a specific poem about a mountain and I was to portray the poem into a graphic.

The poem: Alone Looking at the Mountain – Li Po

All the birds have flown up and gone; 
A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other –
Only the mountain and I.

With this poem and the illustration I created, I wanted to communicate that being alone does not mean you’re lonely, if you take a look around, you will then notice the beauty of your surroundings (such as the mountain).

I used Adobe Illustrator to create each shape from the entire mountain, to the sunset.
