visom: vector proposal

a comparison between my images as vector and bitmap. in my last line, the apple loses some of its changes in value, although this does not bother me. i am looking to vector my images because of the trouble i am having with enlarging in my flash video.

colour weekly post

last week in class was most beneficial to me because of all the time i spend using illustrator. while i worked to not only completed my letterform color assignment i also was beginning to remember valued skills in illustrator, such as: numerous short-cut keys, manipulation of tools and use of color options. although these last couple weeks have been difficult they have been greatly beneficial by way of me gaining a new ability to cope with large loads of work in a small amounts of time.

viscom: bitmap vs. vector

bitmap and vector images both have their pro's and con's. bitmap works great for the web and they make photographs possible. although bitmaps can become pixilated if enlarged to an excess.

vector images are great for resizing. because they are composed and re-drawn using mathematics, vector images can be blown up or shrunk down at any scale. There drawbacks are that they are very simple renderings and cannot be used with photographs.

viscom: taxonomy proposal

i plan on designing a wire-o book for my taxonomy of marks. i want it to be roughly 6x5" on a white background. i plan on first separating my marks by which line their object was taken. i will then divide these three sections with other characteristics, both denotative and connotative. i want my book to have a gradient look so i plan on using the denotative characteristics of light and dark to do that. i also want to divide my marks by their feeling of moisture or movement. the way some of my marks seem to bleed or move would be an interesting way to categorize them.
