Wicked book #want .. #walsallartgallery
Once a childhood pass time of mine, who said im too old for dot to dot now :) . Example on the front reminds me of ecther skecth aswell. Looking through the book it took my eyes a while to get used to so many complexed dots, that created portraits of famous people. Surprizing thou sum face shapes were easyer to reconise then other. Just have to see how they turn out.
Looking at the legibility of the writing over my chosen image of a sad child. ’If you don’t tell me, I cant help” is what I say to my child on any matter that he is having problems with big or small. Even if he is worried about the consequence’s of telling, I always reassure him that I am here as his mother, so I cant always guess or expect some one else to tell me something is wrong.
I have changed my saying to “If you don’t tell us we cant help” as I am talking to all the public that would see this poser including children. I think it is very clear on what I am trying to say because truth is if you don’t tell you will be stuck in a place you don’t want to be or know of a child or young adult that is finding life hard as an abused human being.
Deciding on Cant or Can’t is my other issue, getting the writing correct is important to my poster. Also looking at font colour and my poster as avwhole, still indecided on this question.
I have purposly placed the caption over the childs mouth. As what i found out is that silence is a factor to these situtaion, either the child cant talk or too scared to talk. But some one can talk for them and thats ‘you’ .
A working progress for my final on one of my page layout for the class book. Ive selected this photograph because of it birds eye veiw of the glass, ice hearts and liquid, that is sprawled across the white A4 paper. White paper was used instead of coloured paper because i wanted the colour and the objects to stand out of the page.
I have picked certain moments in history that relate to the colour and what the colour created from past to the present.
I do feel that the image relates to the infomation i shall add. The split liquid from the glass shows the bad side of ove itself not just moments in history. The ice hearts symbol the happy side of love, still intacted and strong.
Looking at the font,size and the legdabilty of the written infomation. As i noticed that certain areas of the hearts are darker then others. I do like this effect you are able to read, the writing but you do slighlty have to look more carefully. I may and try use the brush to lighten up areas with ajustments to the op. .
Infomation graphics. (Infographics) is a visual representstion of data or instrutive infomation. That has been used in a combination of images, text or numeric format. To be arranged in bite size way that is quickly understood and easy to understand.
Infographics are every where we look. From pie charts to billborads. Advertiseing a wide varitey of subject matter. Because this a quick and easy way of giveing infomation to a target audenice.
I found that Stepahn Sagmeister produced a variety of album covers for such artists as Talking Heads, Lou Reed, OK Go, and The Rolling Stones.
This cover is from ” The Bridge to Babylon” 1977s tour album cover. The animal depicted on the cover is a Assyrian lion which has been embedded on to a manufactured filigree slipcase. you can see a desert scenery’s setting the mood, also to accompanying tour/stage design. The meaning of the inspiration for the lion design came from an Assyrian sculptor in British museum, leading singer Mick Jagger was an inspiration for the cover as the lion is also used to represent that astrological side of Mick Jagger being the star sign Leo.
To show that Stephan Sagmeister has made a great contribution to graphics design, he was awarded the AIGA Medal at “Bright Lights award gala ” in New York city in April 2013. These medals have been awarded since 1920 to individuals who have set standards of excellence over a lifetime of work or which have made a individual contribution to innovation within the practice of design. creating a significant impact on the practice of graphic design for the future generation to grow further with graphic design.
My chosen graphic designer is Alan Fletcher, Born in Nairobi Kenya September 27th 1931. Fifty five years of contribution to art with is production of his work as he sadly passed away in September 2006. But with his passing he still lives on through his work and knowledge, and by giving inspiration to the new and old generations of the world. Being one of the top leading British graphic designers is was described by the Daily telegraph
" In his obituary, he was described by The Daily Telegraph as "the most highly regarded graphic designer of his generation, and probably one of the most prolific "
Below is an example of where Alan Fletcher’s work has been used for and a prime example of how his legacy lives on through his work, Because the V&A logo was created for the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1960s and is still proudly used today to advertise the museum as a whole.
The typeface is called Bodoni , I find this design sophisticated and very fitting for the worlds greatest art and design museums. Even with shortening the museum’s name to V&A it is still left with an air of elegance about it. Being produced in the 1960 this logo would have been hand rendered.
Saw this on the 51 bus going to birmingham, i sat closer to take piture and read the infomation. As i did not see it untill i sat down to glance around the bus.
poster caught my eye because of the red colour heart meaning love danger … then I noticed the ” LOVE SHOULDNT HURT ” as my eyes scanned the image I soon cottoned on to it was about domestic violence. with the words and sayings that surround this issue. I did think it was a very tame version of words where these would be through out the relationship, and are apart of the grooming tool at the start.
But isn’t the idea to show awareness of this situation which is not nice, I would like harsher words used but maybe this should be used in different surroundings i.e. a safe house, clinic, police station. And maybe a battered heart the red heart looks to pretty and valentine it dose not look hurt enough by the words or actions.

Work by Alex Echo, wow was my first thought and wow was my second after looking at prize tag over five thousand pound worth off art each.
Sequins also known as spangles small circular disc made of plasic in a variety of colours and shape. These can be used for decorative purposes, sewed on to fabric or left to dangle. Before the invention of celluse plastic by two british inventours, sequin were made of metal disc. This is shown in ancient cultures egytptian, india peru.
Sequins can be used over a wide range of things clothing, arts and crafts.
Ive decided to use sequins to add colour into my photography, as this was an oringnal idea that i actually didnt want to draw directly onto the photography.
Ive used meltatic stars and flamingo, music notes and a mask. I want to make this femine imagine with the glitz and glam of a girls night out.
With the males drink i choosen circle disc to keep it more masuline, with the addition of two male lions placed either side of glass.
Feel the final result is good, i didnt want to drown the two glasses so i used less and scattered seqins. Opposite to the few artist and images ive look at.
