I know I haven’t really been updating, but I have been hard at work on art projects for my new MassArt program. That’s a good excuse, right? Lol. I am thinking that this will be the case until August, when I have some time off. I was thinking that I might try to get back to daily updates for the month of August. For now, though, here is my more recent project for my Typography I class:
We were asked to faithfully reproduce a word, in a particular font (with proper letter spacing – that’s hard), in a material that in some way relates in a unique way to the word. So I decided to do the word “SWEET” in coffee beans. Partly because coffee beans are not sweet, but bitter. And partly because not only do many of us use sweetener in coffee, but – as one of my classmates pointed out – when those of us who are addicted to coffee get our morning fix… it’s definitely a sweet moment, =)
I had some other ideas that I thought were better, but I had a limited amount of time (and money), so this was the fall back plan – but I think it worked out ok. Hopefully I’ll be able to utilize those ideas in the future for other projects, though.
