Fiona responded to my origami stop motion with this hand drawn chicken. My immediate reaction was of the phrase ‘Which came first, the chicken or the egg?’ so I drew this in illustrator. I wanted to keep it simple.
I thought i’d keep practicing illustrator and use of colours.
Fiona responded to my blue eyes piece, with this logo. Didn’t really know where to go with this at all, but settled on an inventory of anything blue that was around me. Kept it simple by laying it out in a square grid.
As per previous post, Fiona responded to my butterfly with a photoshop piece of some origami cranes. In response, I have created some moving paper cranes that give the effect of wings flapping. I wanted to create an animation of them flapping but it proved a bit tricky so I made this short, low fi, stop motion animation of the bird flying from one corner to another getting smaller so it appears that its flying away.
Fiona responded to my tye dye piece with these 4 coloured butterflies. In response to this, I reverted to my inner child and created some paint butterflies, where you only paint on one side and fold the page over to create a mirror image. I took the best one of these and stuck it in a frame as though it was in a museum.
Fiona responded to my ‘Illustrator is hurting my brain’ poster, with a poster that said University is hurting my brain. The text was tripled and it made my eyes go a bit funny so I responded with a personalised eye test! Sorry its a bit rubbish!
I am still learning Illustrator (slowly) and tried to create a vector drawing in response, but everything was awful. So I stuck with type and played around with a retro inspired poster. It’s not very good!
