These are the images I have for the ABC project. The assignment was to find images out in the world that look like letters and then to represent them into a picture or an illustration. My theme was Sports and recreational activities. I was in a rush to turn this project in, so I had to work with what I had. I went to Kinko’s to print out my letters and numbers, and the last two pages of letters and numbers were corrupt files. Those images were unable to print and I was running out of time, so thanks Kinko’s. What I planned to do was have two Bristol board papers, one with the images glued on the page and the other paper was matted to fit the images. The baseball jersey also matted would go over the second Bristol board paper with the jersey tucked into all the Bristol boards matted squares. I did not have the time to create the clean look so I used one Bristol board and just matted the jersey over, and cut jagged boxes over the images to give the jersey torn look.
This was the pattern project. The class was assigned a task to go out and look for random patterns out in the world and then represent them however we wanted. I chose to capture people and animals faces to see the patterns of behavior. I was intrigued in the patterns of expressions of people and animals rather than taking pictures of nature, or man made objects. I wanted to represent all the different attributes people and the animals had but show how they all have a similar pattern of expressions. I chose to put natural patterns of man made objects in the background to help show the main focus of this piece was a pattern. The direction of the background images pulls the focus to the man with his dog on his shoulders to represent the bond between them.
