So one of my favorite in design is the interpretation of the classic story of “Jack and Jill.” Our task was to take a several shapes and figures. So my group made a rendition of Jack and Jill where they are teddy bears: Jack is an old fart but doesn’t want to admit it to himself, Jill is the young hot thing that likes older men. In our story he must climb the ladder or “the hill” to get the grapes or “pail of water.” He then fall off the ladder and “broke his crown” by this we met he lost all of his coolness so all his tattoos fell off. His crown was his ego in our version. Jill however did not come after him, as she found new man, well teddy bear.
In the critique, we got a lot of positive feedback. Most like the story line, one person thought it sexist, which when explained made sense in way. We should’ve had a disclaimer that it wasn’t meant to be sexist. On a second look, it realized that is does look like Jill is pushing off Jack in the forth panel. Also the class didn’t really like the first panel because of the line we put under the two teddy bears, which i can understand doesn’t really fit. We didn’t know what do there, filling it black wouldn’t have worked and looked a little distracting. Oever all I was very happy with it.
