A Small Project
What do I want people to know about me? There are many things I would like to tell, and narrowing it down to just one was difficult. After browsing through my previous work for inspiration, I eventually settled on emotion. More particularly how I love to capture emotion in photos or videos, or create them in illustrations and stories. Emotions are at the core of most great works. It’s what makes people laugh or cry, it’s what brings a smile to their face, or a tear in their eye. In the end that’s what I aspire to do with any of my art. It’s to evoke emotion.
For this project, the medium I chose was a poster, as I could use easily use my photography to its effect. While a video or animation would have also been a great idea, I chose the poster due to it’s simplicity.It’s relatively easy to create, but done right, can be a very effective medium. Various designs were experimented with and different sketches were drawn in the brainstorming process, but the final design was chosen because it was simpler and more to the point. There’s no guesswork needed to figure out what idea is being shown. There are photos of people with various expressions to help convey emotion, as well as a quote from a song. The starry sky backdrop also adds to the grand, dramatic feel of the whole piece.
