Color Harmony: Phase 3

After going on our Cooper Hewitt museum trip, I chose this digital painting( Kabuki Theater Poster) by Ellen Mon Lee because I love the color palette, the Japanese influence and being underneath a cherry blossom is soothing. I thought this would be a good inspiration behind Glass Child because the theme of this book is tranquil and slice of life. The total time to complete this process was 6 hours.(Source)


Color Harmony: Phase 3

Humument Book Cover








The reason I chose this image (Poster, Otis Rush 1967) to reference in my Humument book cover because the main idea of this image is psychedelic. The original theme is about a boy go to find his mother in America, and the new theme is mind-altering. Base on my humument design of the third page, I used to describe his feeling, which is the select the text the show out his feeling. This image is using the deformed bubble text, sinuous lines and pale colors produce an optical surge, suggesting the effects of hallucinatory on the mind.

For this project i chose as piece called “THE GREAT MOON HOAX OF 1835” Posted on October 25, 2015. I chose this piece of work because it represents what my theme of my book is, the theme of my book is observation and the title “Essence” comes from the original title of the book which was “silences” by Tillie Olsen. I also liked the colors that were used in the work that i used and i think it goes great with the aspect i was trying to convey.

Color Harmony: Phase 3

I chose this image (DATA VISUALIZATION, FLIGHT PATTERNS, 2005–08) to reference in my Humument book cover because it is a juxtaposition of my books them. The original theme is about a boy becoming of age, and the new theme is mysterious. This image is mysterious because of all the negative space with the colorful spirals in the center.
