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