I couldn’t make it to the session so instead I thought I’d document my drawing progress;
For this project I chose the “Time For Change” campaign, with is about speaking out about mental illness. I made 3 portrait posters that could possibly be used on bustops etc.
Sketches & earlier versions:
We practiced documenting by describing/making up stories about different objects. The first story on my notes is about an old Victorian envelope and the second one is about a small fork.
I was ill this week, but I read the “Making Sense: What can we learn from experts of tactile knowledge?” document on Blackboard.
I was about how people who have for example lost their eye sight can still make ceramics, paint etc. just by using their touch as a guide. The text concentrated on ceramics.
It made me think that maybe it would be good practice to try and for example try to draw with eyes closed, and try to “feel” the drawing instead of relying on sight. and see how different that would make the piece.
