Jan 19 – 25
*Collecting dreams in one place, printing out
*Preparing for the tutorial to explain my project idea
*Layering technique research
*Mixed media research
*Collecting animal photos
*Looking at inspirations
This week I have spent mostly doing the basic research of what I would be interested looking at when working on my Final Major Project. I have collected quite a big variety of examples to look at for inspiration later on during my FMP. As for this project I chose to look at animals as my biggest inspiration I have been looking at other artists’ works to learn more on how they illustrate animals and what techniques they use in order that I would be able to create something that has not been made before, in order to gain my own voice in this project. After the tutorial on thursday I have been inspired to start creating experimentations or looking at not so usual among illustrators techniques such as Photograms and Cyanotypes, and similar. I will start working on experimentations for next week and follow the task list agreed during the tutorial.
