This one is even older than the robot heads. For this assignment we had to draw a piece of paper from a hat. There would be a name of a famous dead person on the piece of paper. And draw the person a perfect Christmas gift, and another drawing of the person enjoying the gift. I got Martha Graham. She was apparently a very famous dancer and choreographer from what I remember. And I based the thank you drawing on a quote I found.
“I believe in never looking back, never indulging in nostalgia, or reminiscing. Yet how can you avoid it when you look on stage and see a dancer made up to look as you did thirty years ago, dancing a ballet you created with someone you were then deeply in love with, your husband? I think that is a circle of hell Dante omitted.”
So I thought “Hey! Lady needs a torch, so she can burn down all of her memories and focus on today”
I was planning to post these a while ago, but kinda forgot about the blog. But hey, better late than never. Unless it is some sort of incurable illness. Which it isn’t in this case. So we were supposed to learn photoshop and illustrator, and use them to create root heads. This is what I ended up with.
So we were supposed to illustrate to a text named Do I still ❤ NY. By far the most difficult assignment this year. I had major trouble coming up with an Idea for it, and ended up doing the whole thing the day before we were supposed to hand it in. The colors look a bit weird on the computer, since I saved it with CMYK colors.
And here are some bigger versions of the images, without the text.
