The fortune cookie project was a bit harder than expected. It was difficult for me to portray the fortunes in my art, metaphorically. I didn't want to just paste the fortunes onto a piece of paper. I wanted more thought to go into it. It took me a little while, but soon enough I was able to get going. I haven't finished, but pictures are soon to come
I really liked this assignment. At first, I really didn't get into it, or want to at that. But once I got my third piece, and started getting inspired for it, it became fun. I loved all the ideas that were just rushing into my mind. I didn't have an overall plan or idea for it, I just went with whatever came to mind, and I had a lot of fun with it.
The pop print was a fun experience overall for me. I enjoyed carving the shape from the stamp, because I find that better than drawing in a way. It was neat to print in mass just because it was a lot quicker and easier to get things done. It has sort of an iconic look to it, more modern and fun. I don't exactly have a reason for choosing the object I did, I just thought it'd be a cool shape to work with, all the different lines and shapes. It was a good experience overall.
