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.
I felt that this project was a great way too kick of the semester and this new learning path. You have to know the rules before you break them. My two images connected perfectly one representing the court he played on and the way he got his name. This was a tribute too Kobe Bryant and his Daughter GiGi. RIP to both of them …. Kobe signing off.
Some feedback that I got while presenting really stood out to about the ambiguous work is that when I was doing the work I thought the proportions were all good and after the feedback they were off. So when I resubmit that is one big thing that I will be looking at also the tidiness in making the shape in this also was off. Those two things affect me in the project, but will help in creating others in the future.
The thing that I found in my obvious is the way that I inked it. I should have put more in on the page so it could really show the effect of the 70/30 ratio. Also my mistake while presenting was being unprepared and not bringing in the actual photo for this one.

At the beginning of this project, I had a difficult time understanding the concept of lines and ratios. I also struggled with translating images into graphics, but ultimately I settled with these two pictures. From then on, the objective more became clearer. I found penwork requires nerves of steel. Tracing too hard with a pencil will leave a mark no matter how I erased it. For the next project, I have to improve my time management and work in a calmer state.
Hello guys, gals, and gender rebel pals! Here’s the final images, inked and scanned!
One problem I quickly encountered while inking my images was that being left handed, as well as never working with ink before, made it a really difficult process- but I managed! To get the exact shape of the image, I cut out my original sketch and used it as a stencil.
This one was my favorite to do, as I found myself having more space and room to be creative and freestyle the work while also getting the original wood pattern to come out. This piece also reminds me a little bit of the album cover to Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures with the usage of only black and white with heavy line/shape work.
