IW: College Box Project

This just covers the illustrative parts of the project. I’ll talk in more detail in a later post about the project and my art piece, so don’t feel confused because all will be explained at a later date.

In terms of the illustrations, the children are seeing inside the contents of the box with innocence and it’s this fragile nature that plays contrast to the muck, the dirt and the giant mouth that consumes and envelops everything we hold precious. The children remain innocent as they don’t see what’s happening outside the box because of their fixation with the kittens (made from cloth xD).

I have not decided if I want to add any more illustration to the piece, but if I change my mind, I have another day of college time if I choose to.

The Artistic Journal: Yet another medley

It really is a medley: college work, requested artwork and some personal artwork. All of it is being hand drawn by me of course and I’m slowly getting feelings of improvement in my drawing technique that obviously comes with practice. I had been stuck last week on what kind of art I should work on and then when this week started, I had some fresh ideas to work with. A new section in my college course means I have content to draw from. The menacing face WIP is another League of Legends character called “Volcanic Wukong,” making as a request for a friend, which is a hobbyist art creation for myself. The most personal one to me in this series of pictures, is the tattoo design of the RIP Urn that I made for my dad in relation to my grandmother. Ultimately when I have a really strong idea to work with, I am deeply inspired to commit effort to working on it and the tattoo design was one such idea because it’s deeply personal to my family. There’s no fear to keep personal feelings from you guys anyway… I was sad when she passed away, but I had anchors that kept me strong and I live on with the memories I have of her and all my family and friends. They’re the inspiration behind me doing what I do: so I can be the best I can and share my experiences and my personality with the world.

Labelling Myself – Part 1

This is an art assignment for my Art Foundation course that was given to me to complete over the summer. I was to complete this in the summer and have it ready for when I go back to college in September.
So, I was given a brown luggage tag and told to use it in a creative way to portray myself and my personality. The final piece has to be creative and/or functional and we could do what we like to it. For me, I have decided to turn it into a book, using the tag as the backing binder and finding 2 pieces of cardboard to use as the backs. It’ll contain a plethora of illustrations about me and the things around me :).

This is obviously the first part, being the startup and crafting. Part 2 will include designs and the rest of the crafting, as well as the final piece.
So I took some photos to show you:
