For this assignment we had to create a motif. First after selecting two spaces and piercing one into the other, we came up with our own unique design.
After we created 10 graph patterns, 5 with 100 1’ x 1” and 5 with 25 5” x 5”
Next we selected the one we thought looked the best and covered it with tracing paper. Once it was covered we make a sketch of what areas to leave white and which to color black with India ink.
Finally we selected our design and created the piece on white illustration board.
Sketches for Motif
(5 Small 1″x1″ graph patterns)
(5 Large 2″ x 2″ graph patterns)
So this is my finished work. Overall I was unhappy with it. Where I think it is pretty at first glance, I am mad that the circles didnt turn out to be prefect circles. I also wished I would had done with a different design. I feel like after hearing the critiques from class this was a real waste of my time. My motif was inspired by Yin Yang, which I love very much, but I wish I would have just done something different with this motif.
In Critique it was stated the design was old fashion and left others wanting more. The circles were uneven but it was symmetrical and had a good pattern.
