Portrait

Artists collaborate
Did you ask another student for feedback during your work process? 
I did ask another student for feedback. The reason why I asked her is because, she knew who my friend was.

Did someone help you understand important information or inspire you? 
That person did help me because, she said it looked a lot like him. And thats all I wanted to here because, thats what I was aiming for.  

Artists Develop Art Making skills
Did you learn new techniques or processes as part of the work for this project? 
I learned how to make the face proportional, where each thing goes, and how to shape the face the perfect size.

Did you gain skill with familiar materials? 
I definitely think that I have improved with my materials over the past quarter in the Art class. I've had a blast. This class helps me clear my head.

Make a GIF mini project

  video 


How does this GIF relate to me? 
IT DOESN'T at all. Im a swimmer and swimming is my life, but the problem was that I couldn't draw someone swimming over and over again. The reason I see a basket ball going through a hoop instead is because, I thought it would be simple , however I do like to watch basketball. That is another reason why I decided to do this. 

Sorry if this wasn't my best blog post, I'm not feeling too good :(

Flappy Bird (Printmaking Project)

Flappy Bird Pop Art
 Artist take risks:
While making this piece I wasn't too sure of how the carving worked. It was very difficult to try and carve everything out because at times it got close to carving over or above the lines. Sometimes I had trouble carving out the little parts of this. But it turned out better than I thought. 
Both material and techniques were unfamiliar and new to me. Basically EVERYTHING was new to me because, I have never put my hands on these things until now.  
Artist Reflect: 
In the process of making my piece, I looked back to think how my print would turn out, I started asking people how it would turn out if I did this and that. Then I took people answers into consideration, and it turned out to help me a lot. 
But before I started I did not consider how my idea would work in this print. So thats why I asked people for some guidance.   
Why this? 
I choose to make a flappy bird pop art because, it is very popular on the app store, and most people would recognize it when they see it.

Origami Piece


A swan in its nest


 

Artists reflect.
- analyze work and process
When did you step back and analyze you work during this project?
During my paper folding process I seemed to struggle on my shape part of my origami piece. The shape had nothing to do with the theme of my Origami, besides the fact I couldn't get another piece of  cardboard. Honestly my folding skills are a little rusty.   

Artists take risks.
- try new things
- experiment
Did you try something that you weren’t sure about as part of this project?
Did you pick a material or technique that was new or different over something that was familiar?
I tried to make a nest with out using techniques, instead I just crumbled up the paper and shaped it like a nest, and I cut little slips of paper to make the nest more realistic.

My Meme


What was my first definition of the word "Art"? 
Before when Ms.Sudkamp asked us what our definition of art or what we think what art means. I said its a way of expressing someones feelings, emotions, personality, etc. On a piece of paper or canvas. But what I think Art means now is whatever you consider to be art. Which basically means when you complete a piece, you can decide whether or not its art, like a personal opinion. And the majority of my table group has agreed on that's what Art means.

Color Project

In Progress

Sorry I can't rotate the picture!
The theme I have picked for my color project is disguise and if you can't see look very close. You will see two people blending in with the wall in front of the club. Those two people are police watching the bar to see if anything goes wrong. The medium I am using is color pencil. And like I've explained in my other post, I am more comfortable with pencils rather than other mediums used for art. I have had some difficulties with being symmetrical with the blocks on the front of the club. Some look like squares and some look like rectangles. But  I don't think it will be that big of a problem.  


Final 

I think my piece was successful in incorporating the disguise theme. And from the comments people left in class about my piece, I'd say that this was a job well done.My favorite comment: " I like how the people blend in with the wall, and it is very original",  I'm mostly proud of how I made those people blend in with the wall, it definitely took along time to make that work, so people can see it a little bit more than I intended. The only thing I would change would be making all the squares symmetrical with one another. What I've learned is that you can still have fun with this even though it takes along time to do.
