RECAP

March 25, 2010

so let’s recap the “fruit” project. to me, disastrous!

Very hard for me to think 3-D like, so I went the origami way. The first try was decent, second try turned out great, third try was ok, and fourth try was disastrous!

Paper I got from Clampitt was amazing, but for the outside layer was folded using very touch cover paper so there were many complications with it.

I’m sure the question is, what did I learn from this. …. well, honestly, aside from simplifying a shape, I didn’t learn a whole lot.

As much as I “hated” the bird project, I did get something out of it, but this one … eh. not really. I TRULY hated this project and didn’t feel like it was necessary at all. *sigh* … all is left to say is I’m praying I didn’t get an “F” on it cuz I did put tremendous effort into creating it.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

March 9, 2010

Question: What have you noted as important steps in the abstraction process?

THERE ARE NO CURVES!!! That’s the easiest way to put it. I mean, let’s be honest here, I DO NOT like this project AT ALL. It seems by now that Sign and Symbol is not my favorite class. Abstraction is cool and such, when it comes to PAINTING … but I’m not a big fan. It’s really hard for me to think SIMPLE. seriously.

Sadly, I have no sketches to post up … but I have been looking through a lot of sites for ideas and templates on how to construct my cantaloupe melon (since Whole Foods doesn’t have my pomegranate). *sigh* … oh how I can’t wait till this project is OVER and done with.
