Undoubtedly, the final project that I developed at António Arroio (Prova de Aptidão Artística) was my first real experience at time management and planning, design and illustration. Even though I had previously illustrated a few assignments and commissions, it was in the making of this final project that I fully understood how to develop a project from scratch, how to design and solve problems.
I've created a collection of illustrated activity books for children, based in philosophical concepts. Due to time regulations, only two books of the idealized collection were made:
Metaphysics and Aesthetics.
The text, written with the help of a professional philosopher, is characterized by its open philosophical questions, grouped logically. For each question I created an activity, and for each group a certain illustration style.
It was a very successful P.A.A, and I graduated with 20/20 on that subject.
The books are now currently in competition for an exhibition focused on this module, organised by António Arroio.
