Assignment #1 Due

Introduce project #1

——-

ARD280 – PROJECT 1

This project will require two finished works. Both works will be take inspiration from the same source, yet each work will pursue a distinctly different audience and venue.

Start by selecting a book from one of two sources:
the NY Times bestseller list for the week of Jan, 17 2016.
http://www.nytimes.com/best-sellers-books/hardcover-fiction/list.html#
or
http://thegreatestbooks.org/

————————————

Familiarity is an asset, so acquiring a copy, or selecting something you have read will assist greatly.

Create two works:

1. An artwork that draws inspiration from the book.
-This work should be self-driven in regards to aesthetic and technique.

2. An artwork that illustrates the book, or a component of the book.
-The resulting image could serve as the cover, a series of chapter illustrations, an insert, etc.

For both works, be prepared to:
-Define the venue
-Define the audience

————————————
No size requirements
No medium requirements

————————————
DUE DATES:

1/22 – Book selected /
1/25 – 6 sketches (3 each) – discuss progress
2/1 – two final works completed.
