After some subconscious brain exercises, these are collage works produced in Darren session. All made in like 20-30 minutes time.
For colour induction with Rachel, we’re asked to create stuffs using only two colours. It is supposed to teach us something like how to use color… but to be honest… I didn’t really get the brief 😥 (Sorry Rachel) Still, I had fun trying to come up with something using stencils!
As this is my first time ever using stencil (where have I been?!), I tried to keep it simple using only faded, not-smooth white paint combining with greyish blue paper as background to create texture and dramatic mood of Thailand flood we’re facing at the moment.
After the first piece of work done, I found myself enjoying stencils so I decided to make some more! As we’re supposed to create something with colours to provoke “mood”, so I came up with “Mood”, 4 expressions we do it everyday. I ended up using two contrasting colour to stress on face expression, with extra texture in hair part.
These used to be my stencil block/plate..or whatever it is called. I found the shapes on them quite interesting with texture (again) and the position of the hole(?), so I turned them to postcards of hairy monster using just black ink! 🙂
Text & Images workshop by Paul Bailey is about text and image (of course!) and its influence – both separately and combined – on visuals or on our emotion. We also discussed how text can support visual communicates and vice versa. Those were done in group tasks(sss) and one of my favourite is this pic. We’re asked to analyse the element of one images and place the word in another. Me, Brad, and Nadia decided to use the word “lonely” in this weird man-stabbing-man pic. We came up with the concept “Killed by the loneliness.” Still, we thought the loneliness dripping is too predictable so at the end we rotated the image and with fragile/unstable font, this is what we got!
Before class dismissed, our very last task was to empty our bags and pocket then make a word from what we got. I’m kinda proud of my super cute fan and bow tie. Thanks to my caring-everything-around syndrome! teehee!
Well, first week’s almost over. I find learning in totally different language/ environment/culture/blahblah quite
difficult challenging.. It’s so energy-consuming zzzzz! So here it goes, my frist doodle dedicated to uni life! Anyways, apart from that FdA DGC is fun 🙂 I enjoyed everything so far and much looking forward to workshops n stuffs! Pretty sure it’s gonna be 2 years of fun! x
