Assignment #3 Open Source Graphics

For this project you will generate a set of 5 black and white silhouettes, stencil-like images, halftone images or bold drawings for your classmates to use in a project. Please generate imagery that is within your style or approach but that is simple enough to use in a range of graphic media. Please submit high-quality (300 dpi) PSD, jpeg (for halftones) or Illustrator files to share.

You may use, combine, animate and collage images freely from any images in our generated archive and work in groups of two or three to do one of the following:

-Livedraw performance
-Flash animation (posted online)
-Hand-printed project (polyester plates, laser matrices, screenprinting) installed
-Zine, comic, CD or DVD (published in an edition to share with class)
-Any combo of the above
-Other proposal (run it by me)

Please discuss and decide your content together. You may employ the highest and lowest forms of reproductive print technologies, but please work to find a result that is engaging and please contribute solidly to your group and be reliable in your participation!!!
