My previous post was based off these photos. We did stop motion animation last spring. This was my quick example.

Decontextualization

I'm planning on bringing back some old assignments. It has been about 8 years since I have done this one in class. You take a picture out of context, and a word, phrase, or cliché out of context and remix them with each other to create new meaning.

I would just like to say that Adobe Spark Post is a great tool to do this! We can do some graphic design in class without all the software (even though I would like all the software.)

Phrase--Lyrics

Phrase--Literature Quotation

Word



Cliché

Thanksgiving Preview of Student 3

I love Thanksgiving, so I'm celebrating with a preview. It's upside down, but I can't show what it's really going to look like yet.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Process for Student 2 Painting



He's not especially happy that I picked pinks and purples for his skin tone, but I like to use arbitrary colors in my paintings.

Digital Self-Portrait

I have done this type of artwork a couple of other times for Illustration Friday topics. (Oct. 29, 2008March 21, 2008, and March 31, 2008)  
I decided to resurrect this assignment for my students, and therefore practice it myself. I think I need to add some shading underneath my body yet, so maybe I'll be fixing it and reposting later.
