final variations for senior show material
I am so incredibly f***ed.
I think this is a keeper. I'm okay with having an entirely different look from the posters, and the cut up look of the photograph with the fading typography conveys the disconnect of the Chris/Topher christopher idea. Now to figure out if handwritten type works on the back. Augh.
I was very pleased with myself when I decided to dot the "eye."
Eh. Not as strong I think.
Same concept as my other posters, only I finally drew my 9th grade hair (unifies the series). I switched back to a sans-serif typeface. The color adds a lot, but I'm still deciding between Avenir or Din Schrift. Both look a little friendlier than some sterile modernist thing.
I think the larger type will work better for screen printing. I have already screenprinted 10 or 12 posters of just hair. Now I just need to make screens for type and test it out.
8.5" x 11" Posters
I'm not sure why I ventured into the 8.5" x 11" poster territory. Maybe because I need to see things printed, and my printer can't go any larger. With the book pages I could theoretically glue a real book page to each poster and do a hand-inked hair illustration (they take like a minute). It's cheaper to incorporate color that way because I can print everything at home.
Note the book's title: The Last Hurrah. This could double as a show title (since my name is the real title). Anyone paying attention would notice each poster has a different head of hair and a different page from the same book, which I think would be a cool postering exercise.
The hair isn't as effective in the 8.5" x 11" format.
The gallery guide has been nixed. There is no way I am going to finish any extra design material for my show. I still have 10 paintings to finish (17 days... Jesus), some photos to matte, all of my labels, printing of this material, and a printmaking portfolio due Tuesday. I need to find a couch and someone to commit to driving me. I need a few people. I will have a lot of shit to hang come March 20th.
Why am I going to Chicago for spring break? A brief bit of rest before my complete mental break maybe.
