Overall this project was amazing. It helped me understand you can make anything out of nothing but there’s always something there. It was great hunting for elements to use for typefaces i hope someone out there can use mines one day.
I chose Basquiat: The Unknown Notebook because it went well with our selfiemotion project. Great deal of contrast , a focal point , and Digital imaging. Tho it lacks motion like the use of gray scale and and compositional flow makes up for it.
For this work Basquiat produced twenty-eight original drawings and mounted them on canvas in a gridlike arrangement. Layering text and image in a manner reminiscent of graffiti and the free association of his encyclopedic notebook subjects, he created the effect of book pages laid out in sequence. Visible through an abstractly rendered head of an African American male, these language-rich drawings combine scientific diagrams, pictographic notations, bits of world history, and enigmatic references such as THE OBSERVATORY FROM THE JAMES DEAN MOVIE and GORILLA TELEPATHY.
This project was a great tribute to the great Andy Warhol. Gave us the opportunity to conceptualize and then act on those thoughts using our adobe tools. Learned a great deal about the color wheel and pantones. I am eager to see what next year’s color of the year should be.
Hey guys as my favorite color i chose red orange. It is a cross between the two hues. More red than orange, it is bright and exciting and associated with physical energy. It is playful, energetic, and engaging. Red orange can also symbolize health and vitality. Thats everything that describes me once i open up.
