Jeffrey Veregge: Of Gods and Heroes
The artwork on the top is of Hulk from marvel. The background is green and shows the hulk however the foreground is hard to tell, it looks like the square blocks shows hulks muscles, which is true. However, those square blocks represent strength, the wings on his arms and legs represent flight showing he can jump high.
The way the background and foreground is by adding physical symbols on the background (the character) which represent actions and have meaning behind each symbols.
The artwork of Hulk relates to my selfie in a way. Both the artwork and the selfies backgrounds are green. Like the artwork, there are shapes which help create a facial structure on my selfie.

While doing this project I though it would be easy but I was wrong. I barely used chalk for my work so this was new to me and a somewhat challenge. I enjoyed this project finding ways to use chalk.
The primary focuses of project 5 were research and discovery. I decided to search around my apartment to find the starting points of my compositions. As I live in a fairly old complex, finding the starting points were relatively simple, but creating a typeface based on that proved to be a bit more of a challenge. I haven’t used chalk as a medium before, so it was difficult to translate what I initially sketched on paper to the wall(s) of my apartment. Overall, I think it was a fun project to do, as it can test one’s imagination.
In this project I had to take a selfie in class and after that I had to come up with ways of using the selfie to make new shapes and patterns. I also had to choose an emotion that described the picture above. I had a lot of fun completeing the project!
In this project I had to come up with designs that contained movement of lines, textures and patterns. Overall, I had a really good time doing the project because I had to come up with unique ways of doing the designs.
I enjoyed doing this project, at first I thought this was going to be a easy project. However, once I started going out on the streets looking for the perfect crack or stain on the ground I was met with frustration, it took me a while to actually find a crack that represents a letter or word. In the end, my Imagination skills became sharp.
