Hi all!

this is a really delayed posting of my Frank Chimero Inspired piece. It’s the Oregon Dog:

The States: Oregon-Front

The States: Oregon-Front

The States: Oregon-Back

The States: Oregon-Back

I used the Same colors on the front as well as the back of the Image, with the exception of the grey. The Kitty is actually Pennsylvania, if you turn it onto it’s right side.

I actually really enjoyed this project. It showed me what my artwork and photograps could look like in the real world. Here are the building proposals I have created:

Here are 5 Images I was thinking of using for the ART Building project:

I like the bright colors and the textures of this photo.

Photo #2

Photo #2

This is a photo I took at 30,000 feet

Photo #3

Photo #3

I like the depth of this photo and think it would look like it was going into the building.

Photo 4

It’s the colors in this photo that I think I like the best

Pattern #1

A pattern that I think would look really cool on the building, I like the psychedelic effect it gives.

I will upload more patterns as I make them.

The Process was an interesting one. The pen tool was harder to learn than I expected. However once I learned how it behaved ot became a little easier. However I am still not completely comfortable with it, and I do hope to learn more about it soon.

I really love his use of real life objects and how he kind of “funk-a-fies” them. They seem almost 50’s/60’s mod to me, which is an era of design I really liked, but at the same time really seem up to date.

I think I am going to be doing something akin to his “The States” series.

I used an @ symbol in Myriad Pro size 48.

I really liked the way the symbols fit together. It’s something we see every day but never see it this way.

Pattern 3 is of a number 2 in Blackoak Std size 48.

For pattern 4 I used a Upper case H in OCR A Std in size 48 font.

I really liked the assignment however it was somewhat difficult with a few of them. Most of my patterns were very simple, not very intricate. If I were to do this again in the future I would really like to try and make some more intricate and delicate patterns.
