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.

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.

Here are my before and afters for my three compositions. I chose to work in my neighborhood for this project so I could freely go back and forth to the locations for my project if needed but I feel like it limited me slightly, but eventually I did find things to work with of course. The project wasn’t too hard but weather was the only thing that set me back at all so I just learned that I would have to plan more accordingly for future projects that would require similar efforts to complete. I think the yellow blotch was my best composition as it touched on color and texture more than the others although being slightly less readable due to the ‘T’ looking like a ‘J’. All in all the process went smoothly for the most part, disregarding the slight frustrations I had initially looking for places to work, but I’m content with my results and think I did alright this time around. This wasn’t my favorite project but I think it would have been more enjoyable had it been done a different time of year, so maybe I’ll try something like this again in the future.


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.


I posted some of the sketches of the 20 photos I took, but those were not the images I choose to use with chalk. I was at the park and used cracks on the ground to add the type faces on. Most of the cracks formed a letter Y and a letter A it was the most common letter to do. It was difficult to find out what letter fits in, I didn’t want to force a letter or just put random letters, to solve my problem I just stepped away and looked at the ground as a whole and just started to see what letter are forming.
