Ooooooooo, ahhhhhh look, shapes and lines, perfect proportions, something that Pythagoreas liked. The pattern of straight edge and compass, signifying the departure for the search of perfection, perfection never to be found. An illusion…
Yes yes yes, look at those AMAZING shapes! They are gorgeous, you know, if these shapes weren’t my creation, I’d be dating them. No, it is something that Trump would have said. Now can I be expelled???
Expel me you modern fascists, accusers who condemn the innocent and powerless! WTF am I talking about? Cool stuff, nice, simplicity, this is NOT complexity no no.
This picture I made is supposed to represent a poem called “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird” and although the author of the poem was implying an actual bird, I decided to replace the bird with the SR-71 Blackbird only because the plane was epic.
I choose the elements of fire, water and air.
Professor Cromar pointed out the problem that it would be better if I could make the grid of two circles more clear to see, like, to give them more distinguish positions and to show their relationships with the whole piece more geometrically and logically.
I went with two elements for the Mandala project, Air and Water. I originally was just going to do Air because I’m focusing on Air/ Breath in another class so I wanted to relate back the two classes. By accident I used blue and I thought they looked really cool together (yellow and blue) so for no other reason than them looking good together I decided to use two elements.
In this project I learned some new tools in Illustrator, and I guess the biggest challenge for me was figuring out where and what colors to put next. Personally I like the one with the structure on.
