In this assignment we first had to create a motif. A motif is done when another shape takes a bite from another shape. I choose a pentagon and a diamond, as a result, I had a shape that looks like a spaceship.
On our next step, Ms. Waldvogel, photocopied my 1×1 in motif. Afterwards, I cut each and every little square.
This step was my favorite. We would have to draw a 10×10 in grid on a tracing paper and play with the tiles to create different designs. As you can see, I had enough options.
Here is the design I choose from all thinking that it was the most attractive:
Now, we would have to glue this tile to the tracing paper and create the inking plans by placing tracing paper over this design and ink the sections we would like.
And here is the Inking plan I chose:
And last but now least, my final design for the repetition grid assignment.
(sorry, I tried to rotate it but it did not work.)
- The craftsmanship is not good enough. From far away people could see that it was not good.
-The relation between negative and positive space is good.
-The grid lines: some people did not like them at all, other agreed that it makes the design flow from top to bottom (bottom being the side from the little dots) and that the bottom grid line was not necessary because it makes you realize that it is falling, some others thought that the bottom line was necessary.
-It would better if it was a rectangular shape instead of a square shape.
