this last week in class we finished our initials booklet. overall i thought this project was really helpful in not only working with the pen tool but it also helped me pay more attention to digital craft. at times your illustration can seem to be flawless but when magnified and combed through, flaws can usually be found.

my book, a brotherly dispute, was heavily influenced by memories of my childhood. growing up my brothers and i, like most, where constantly getting into arguments and fighting. with each page of my book i illustrate a stage within a common dispute between brothers.
the first pages of my book explain how the argument provokes. following in the middle, is a mini narrative consisting of the physical actions taken during this dispute. in ending my book i let the reader know that brotherly disputes will never be over, they will only continue.
overall i enjoyed this project. knowing that maybe some day i might end up designing posters, knowing how to successfully use the design principles to communicate my idea is a must.

this week we had another tough week of practice with the pen tool. having a couple years practice with it has made it a bit easier on me but i am continuing to learn new skills during each demo. i am excited to get started on the the partner project of the design building.

Overall i thought the readings were not a waste of my time. most of the material was over information that i have already studied at my time at cloud, although i thought it was a great review on some points that i had forgotten about. in the chapter nine reading i thought it was interesting how the author described a design with no contrast, "a solidly and uniform colored flat surface".

i thought in this design by Craig Holden he used both positive/negative spaces and framing. i thought the very luminous women and spoon contrasted well against the charcoal background. i also thought the use of framing made for an interested perspective of the women being fed. also it seems to give more emphasis on the women's face and her desperately wanting the spoonful.
