guys I am final year art student. I like UI/UX design. But illustration project is compulsory. Last year I did project on imaginary friends of my childhood. I really like child illustration because of its style, texture and colors. pls pls pls suggest some nice topics for child art illustration. Total 4 sheets are compulsory. As per teacher explanation Illustration should have story, drama, fun, expressions. etc. I could be some fantasy or some theory or problems.

some examples of last years projects by students
1. what people do when they are in toilet
2. one guy had literally illustrated all famous swear words

I have thought about how would world looked to children, (the world from child's view - fantasy) sorry my English is bad
pls help and suggest some topic. teacher need atleast 7 to 8 topics and will finalize 2

I am attaching one image of my last years illustration. but teachers told us that this year you guys need to work a lot. It must have a lot of details and lot of things in it.

I really like the work of following artist

We can't do your work for you, and that includes coming up with the ideas. How will you explain how you came up with the ideas?
There's lots of inspiration out there for children's books etc. Get yourself over to Amazon books, there's thousands of ideas on there.
Maybe find a book cover that you could do better and copy it in your style - your work is very good.
I know it's difficult when you've been given such an open brief, you don't know where to start.

thanks for the reply. I will sure do my work. I don't want what will be all sheets. I just want one subject. In future I will do illustration only as hobby and not for commercial purpose. I'm making my ui ux portfolio side by side by my own to get the job. In our art school there are only 3 options for specialization that is illustration, photography and typography and non of these is my forte. I must submit two projects on illustration in order to pass my final year. I just can't draw on paper whats on my mind but I'm good with coloring. in contrast ui ux thing I can do all day without getting tired. so pls pls pls help me by suggesting some topics on child illustration

It sounds like you can do anything you want to do, so pick a subject that you can draw easily and search for some pics online
to inspire you. We don't have the time to sit thinking of ideas for you.

Go to the library and spend the day in the childrens section looking at books

Not sure UI/UX is a thing for illustrations. Those terms are usually associated with objects (like a TV remote control or GUI)
