Personal Flag Project

The piece displayed here was made for a project on creating art based on the wishes of a client. In this case, I created a flag based on the client’s personality and interests after talking with them. As part of the project, I was to take those traits, and represent them in a manner that was somewhat abstract, but still recognizable.

In this case, the client had noted that he enjoyed films, road trips, and e-sports. I chose to represent those in various levels of abstract representation. The road trips are represented by the center triangle, and taper out towards the right to represent traveling into the distance. The interest in e-sports was represented more literally, as I chose to use a trophy with a game controller on it, and the film was represented by the “film strip” running along the left side.

The client also described himself as extroverted, and I chose to represent that using the colors in the flag. In this case, it’s dominated by a light blue, which I used to symbolize the sky, and openness, both being elements related to an extroverted nature.

Some Photos from Highbridge Park

A couple weeks ago, I took the wrong train heading back home and wound up in Washington Heights instead of the South Bronx. I wound up taking a walk through Highbridge Park for the first time finding my way home, and I took some photos while I was there.

Right, Let’s Start This Up!

This will be the first post I’ve put on this site. I hope that I can gain more experience with this site as I continue to use it, but for now, I’ll just put up this piece of artwork I made earlier today!

Created April 19th, 2017

I created this piece for my Graphic Design Foundations class, and for the assignment, I studied color theory, mixing and profiling.

I think it came out well!
