The first project is over and I must say it is a relief although I know there more is to come. This project was a struggle for me. It made me cross over into my uncultivated creative side that needs a lot of work. The thought of doing 100 sketches in class last Thursday was unthinkable to me but it helped me when it was announced that the faster I did the sketches the better. I felt that it made it worse and more messy and felt like throwing all my sketches away after looking at them. Here are the sketches and four designs. The feedback I received in class was that my lines were too much like shapes and that it looked too much like I just had plopped my design on the page without giving it a thought and my paper was not the right size. Hopefully the next project will be better and hopefully I learn from the mistakes I made on this first challenge.
