For my Digital Arts course at university, I have to complete a module called Digital Art Processess, in which for out assessment we have to visit 2 galleries (which gets us 20% of the marks) and then write an illustrated essay and a presentation on our favourite digital artist (essay worth 50% of the marks and presentation worth 30% of the marks).
Now with myself being good friends with *lee25 i thought that it would be a good idea to him, not because i know him well, but because i love and admire his work. So i was told by my lecturer to include lots of pictures and for it to be around 1000 words, now i made the 1000 words and included lots of pictures.
This is due in on thursday btw so i really do hope its ok, so tell me what you think, have i done this awsome artist justice? is it amazing? is it a pile of wank? please tell me what you think
Thanks to *lee25 appreciater your co-operation with this, even if you did take like a million years to sort out the information hehe.
editchanged the layout so that its easier to follow
Bro I have to say I love your style.. May I ask where you are studying? I'm at London College of Communications apart of University of the Arts London but it sucks.. so I'm at the moment applying for a BA Digital Arts course for 2007.
This peice looks awesome, how did you do the page layout, in InDesign or just Photoshop?
lol I know I'm going on, but which type of Graphic Tablet have you got? I'm investing in getting one but dont know which model of a Wecom to get.. and I haven't got too much money.
Anyways bro.. nice work.. hope you pass your course!
First off, I'm not studying anymore. I finished my first year @ Thames Valley Uni in Ealing - London, but just had enough and had a nice summer and just decided on not going back. So I am just working at Debenhams Call Centre at the moment to pay back the bills.
I was thinking off re-applying to a different uni to study graphic design but I thought to myself that the debt would be too much and you don't need a piece of paper saying you can design. It shows in your work what you can do.
As for this piece, I did it in InDesign. As for the graphic tablet, I use the Wacom Intous3, think I paid about £180 for it from Micro Anvika by Tottenham Court Road beginning of my first year at uni.
haha, yeah i know, been way busy!
been watching your stuff loosely but college has been pretty tough stuff hehe
communication design next fall is going to be alot of fun
i'll have fully-loaded powerbook g4 this summer, which will be awesome to take back to university
how have you been mate?
thanks bro i love this sort of stuff, its something which i wil just get one and get done as i love it. as for what course im doing its a BA Honors in Digital Art and then i have Creative Advertising as my minor.
Hopefully i can end up doing a course very similar to yours!! ATM im in my 1st year of my graphic design diploma.. so much boring shit, the only good part is my Photography class, which im curently in.
ha, sweet dude. YEa my course isnt bad, so far we have done the following modules:
Pixel BAsed Imaging (Very very basic photoshop)
Visual Studies (Drawing of the human form / hated this!!)
3D Modelling (Using a program called Maya, hated this too! lol)
Web Design Skills (using dreamweaver)
Mulitmedia Scripting (using frieworks)
Digital Art Process (my essay)
Oh and it'd be best for you to make a column/grid stucture and stick to it, I find myself getting a bit lost in places, eg: page 3 with the 2 columns above and then the wider bit of text at the bottom. If you keep the text in the same size columns then it will be far easier to read
Time? dude this took me a couple hours last night, and its due in 2moro! from scratch this was, and *lee25 will back me up with this as i was showing him it once evry page was complete. so if oyu got a couple spare hours, load up indesign and do it!
Nice layout, but you could improve it by not changing the main grid on every new sheet: one layout grid (+maybe an other for the "influencedby" section). You could also iprove it by playing with spece between letters and lines... nb: I haven't read it. Anyway, nice job man.
