Creating Mock Ups: Here I have created a few mock up’s of how my idea would look in a club and I’m quite happy with the way that they are looking.
I am now going to put these on A2 sheets and annotate them and explain how I would want it to work in a Night Club setting.
What I need to do in time for submission: create mock up’s of what my idea is and annotate and talk about what would happen graphics wise on the screens in the club.
- Try and get in touch with Sam Meech
this is something I have tried to do this week but I haven’t had or heard a reply from him in aid of guidance of getting an Isadora patch for submission.
Final Presentation time.
It’s nearing the end of the road for this project.
For this presentation I am going to visually communicate my plan for my idea as something has gone wayy wrong with time management and general management of this project of work.
I am going to talk about my plans and ideas aswell as show some physical examples of the work I have made and see what I need to do work-wise for submission on Monday.
I doubt that I am going to be finished in time at all. I haven’t really made or produced much work during this project due to time management of other projects.
I am going to try my hardest for the presentation and at least try to propose my idea visually and comunicate to the group my final intentions for the work.
I am going to create an animation incorporating my own artist style and see how it works out using Flash.
Isadora as a piece of software is awesome, it’s really great to think that somebody could interact with something that you have made.
- My own personal worry is that it maybe more work for me than I need as Animation and animating my work may have been enough
I feel like the presentation I made about my work so far and my progress went pretty well as I didn’t have a great deal of work to show.
In the presentation I highlighted elements of my own work that I could work with and what I would want to do with them aswell as having my pieces of work to show to the class.
I was honest and realistic in my presentation saying where I was up to and what I had done aswell as talking about what I need to do.
I need to get over the thought of Flash and Isadora being obstacles and crack on with the work I need to do.
I need to develop hand drawn animation much more and enjoy it and bring my style of work to it much more freely with added colours and shading.
- I am now going to create an illustration in keeping with a popular/current song that would be played in clubs.
- Trace elements and work on the drawing of these elements.
- Animate them using flash.
- Apply to Isadora
— I am (from now) going to do the above whilst documenting my sucesses, possibly some failures and my general development of my work.
Artist Reference: Diego Giovanni Bermudez Agguire.
Diego Giovanni Bermudez Agguire is a Colombian graphic designer. In Diego’s works he explores shape and colour quite boldly and it’s very apparent. He has had many years of experience as a professional graphic designer and teacher at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and Universitaria del Area Andina, both in the Colombian capital of Bogota.
I have opted to look at a designer opposed to an illustrator as just a way of diversifying my references to artists. I really love the colour Diego uses in his works and I find the colour a relation between my own and his works. His works are known for the bold colour blocking and abstracts and expressive shapes he uses within his pieces. (Along with his use of eyes within his pieces).
