Project 4: Finished version

Brittni is a Gemini and she likes 1920's fashion and dancing, I made the Gemini constellations flapper girls. Goofy is the best word that describes Brittni and she likes zebras so, I decided to added a goofy image of a zebra. The zebra is wearing a coral color dress because Brittni likes fashion and coral is her most favorite color.

Project 3: Final project

Project 3: Notes

Dr. Robinson

Project 3: Progress

I wanted to use prof. Kengla as my reference but, unfortunately that didn't work out. I originally planned to exaggerate his facial features and have him surrounded by the kids that he works with. In the end I could not do much with the project because I only had close up photos of the kids sitting down. Once I started to cut and paste the images, the project started to look more like a collage, and that's not what I wanted. I decided to instead start another project with a different professor.

Artist Portrait: Final Draft

The images that I placed in the background are biographical and cultural. I decided to add a warmer orange tone as the background because, my parents have old postcards that are the same color. I used text from I poem that I like, and I replaced the cloth with imagery that matches the poem. I altered the colors of the same photo 3 times and then I overlapped the merged photos with another image of a storm. Finally, I added dragonflies to balance out the empty space.

Thumbnail Sketch

This a thumbnail sketch of how I would like my project to turn out. The squares on the shawl will be made up of cultural and biographical images. I plan on twisting the images on the shawl so that the images could match the movement of the fabric. For the background, I will add the text of a short poem. Since the poem includes natural elements like "springtime" and "storms", I plan on layering the background with different images of nature.
