This was a really fun assignment because of what we had to do and being able to work in groups and get to know our classmates a little bit more and actually the story is really cute.
However, for this assignment my team, Juliana Vargas, Mariana Flores and Taylor Sergeant, did the following:
First, we all did our own representation of the story and we Decided that Mariana’s idea would be the best. Marian changed the story a little bit. This is how Mariana changed it:
At the circus, Jack and Jill
Went up the stairs
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack saw Mouse and he got scared
Then fell down and broke his leg.
Jill came down to laugh at him.
We decided that Jack will be an elephant and jill a mouse. I did the drawings and Taylor helped me too. After, Juliana, Mariana and Taylor traced them and transcribe them onto the 8×8 inch bristol board sheets. Then, Juliana, Mariana and Taylor traced them with micro pens. When they were all traced Juliana, Mariana and I add some color to them. After all of the drawings were done, Juliana, Taylor and me placed them in two different black boards. Finally, Taylor did the cover for the two boards.
We also had to choose some of these pictograms for our designs. The background of the first design is the little square with curved lines (we chose that one because it looks like a circus tent), on the second design we did not add any of the pictograms, on the third design we use the water pipe -I really do not know the name of that-, and in the forth design we used the line of little triangles as circus flags. In the fifth design we used a lot of them: the symbols, the jagged circle, the ladder, the elephant falling, and the crutches, and in the last design we used the ladder and the small teddy bear that is going down the ladder.
I was absent for the critique but I asked Juliana and Marian what did they said about our work. Juliana and Mariana told me that they would have like that if we would have used the flags in all of the designs. Our classmates mention how good was the craftsmanship, and that they liked how we divided the whole story in two different boards.
I personally thought we did a nice job but I feel like we should have done more drawing to it. Overall, we all enjoyed doing it at least.
Thanks for reading!
