Yesterday I had a crit for the project. I got to show and explain my project from the beginning to the end, and present all the work I had produced. My ‘final piece’ handmade book was received well, and I got feedback.
Notes I made for my pre-crit reflection:
- Used a range of materials, new processes. On going narrative. Digital, added colour, gradients (re-familiarised with working digitally from previous projects) – big influence from Adobe Capture App: replaced tedious process of scanning drawings, live tracing on illustrator then editing on photoshop. The app vectorises reality.
- Used childhood as a process more than ritualism, did a lot of work. Actually reached a final outcome/piece compared to other projects of no definitive ending. Enjoyed ability to have fun and make things up as I went along.
- Could’ve done more research. Looked at Polly Nor at beginning & Yanomami tribe
- Scan/photograph receipt pieces – see how they look on screen. Good sense of play, keep exploring.
- Expanding mark making and materials
- Use the process (creating a book) again as you’ve enjoyed it
- Think about what this piece could become, aside from an art book. Henrik Drechur – Turbulence
- Have a go at animating, short sequences, of your characters, use your varied textures. See if the animation process fits with you and the speed/how you naturally work. Also have a go at making gifs
- Consider scale, how would working bigger affect your work?
- Fax paper, thermal paper (stuff receipts are printed on, machines laser burn them)
- Shinro Ohtake – Japanese collage artist
- Margaret Huber – Train ticket drawings
