Firstly, I went on corbis to research some photos of seniors, as they would have the most memories and tend to reminisce more. After looking at a bunch, I drew two concept sketches for the two I most believed would fit my theme.
After some thought, I decided to go with the second sketch. Photo-referencing from the original image by Arman Zhenikeyev, I digitally rendered the image, as well as gave it a black background and a couple of effects and filters.
Afterwards, I added the word 'memories' between the background and the image, repeating it in several colours, sizes and orientations.
And there we have the final piece! Hope you liked it; stay tuned for the next illustration!
