For my personal project, I’m going to bring the old tales of Greek Mythology back with a twist by placing the gods and goddesses in modern day New York City. This will require me to tweak (and even uproot) some details from the original stories. The narrative will be done in comic/sequential form with plenty of humor and pop culture references. I don’t plan to employ a soundtrack like Disney’s “Hercules”, but it will still be lots of fun.
Personal Project: Comic Book One Shot
My personal project will be creating my own comic book. I am planning on creating 5-7 chapters. This comic book will be based on a story I wrote in my senior year of high school. Which was based off a series of dreams I had when I was 14. This story will contain a compelling plot with characters who are very easy to understand but, have complex personalities. I will achieve this goal by writing a story using my past experiences, observations, and the dreams that inspired me. I will also design very likable characters and appealing back rounds. My goal will be to use this story to jump start an expanded universe which I could use to make my own series of comic books. Hopefully the stories I write could one day inspire a new generation of people and allow them to live a better life.
PERSONAL PROJ: MAGAZINE
The main idea of this project is that students could communicate ideas and encourages hybrid collaboration. I got a lot of new inspirations when I have experience of collaborating with different artists. Thus I really want to start a project to build a community or create a stage for more artists to have fun with collaboration and explore more unique ideas. This project’s aim is to promote the development of art student on campus and connect more audience from public with educative talks, workshops, online post and a publication. Also, I found inspirations from the Pica magazine: “Pica is a playground where errors are encourage and boundaries pushed”(picamag.com). I really want to use this project to challenge myself with social communication and learn more from other artists during collaborating.
Fundraising / Advertising/ Communicating
My project, at the moment will consist of a clothing/fashion idea. Subject to change as ideas can change
For my personal project I would like to experiment with my embroidery on different surfaces and with different designs. My goal is to embroider one collar, one set of small collar pins, two small necklaces, and one bag. I want one of these items to be some sort of landscape or plant based piece because these are popular designs. I will make at least one item a personal piece for me, but I want to build my communication skills and treat this like a small business. I want to talk with students willing to participate in this project with me and I will work to create a design that they enjoy by drafting multiple designs per piece. The goal of the project is to gain experience with my embroidery, and learn to communicate with clients (students) and produce satisfying designs.
My project is an introduction of my hometown. My hometown is a beautiful costal city in southern China. It is a really amazing city and I wish everyone could enjoying it. I want to improve my skills with adobe system through this project. I will look around and find some interesting artists and work which I can learn from. I will upload my mind map later.
