After trying out a few different ways to approach this project, I wasn’t happy with the outcome. The large-scale photography just wasn’t working, and I found it hard to apply it to other merchandize and designs.
Today it was the day to photograph the 3D installation—a day before my hand-in. Unfortunately the weather was not great, but at least I managed to get my sister to stay with the kids, so I didn’t have to drag them there with me (much, much quicker way).
Finally the day has come when I found the time to make the illustrations for my FMP—the inconveniently required 3D part of the project. I did a lino print, a watercolour, ink, colouring pencils pieces, and a collage. I kept it simple, each medium presenting itself—watercolour was painted with watercolour, ink pen by ink, collage by washi tapes, etc.
As I mentioned at the end of the previous post, I went on to create a final proposal by myself, as it was difficult for us to meet us a group due to personal commitments.
As instructed, my group of students has split into 3 further groups, each creating an exhibition concept for our Summer Show.
Green Man is an art and music festival in Wales, which has been going on since 2003. In 2013 its branding has been put into the hands of Lovers, based in London. They’ve created a very successful brand identity, and have been maintaining it ever since.
Last week I went back to the same gallery, Stolen Space, to see what they have on, and their approach varies in relation to another exhibition.
