Impression Studio: Anthology Project, Overlapping multi-colour text

After screen printing made some rough drawings of how words could be overlapped in different colours but I decided to stay with the anaglyph idea as it would be much easier to print only 2 colours rather than multiple colours.

Impression Studio Anthology Project, Looking at paper

Before I thought about how I could print my edition I looked at possibly print onto blotting paper (usually used for LSD) and also perforated a sheet of paper in the same way as an acid sheet. I also had a look at possibly having a hidden phrase when paper is folded correctly but I decided this idea was to complex and may not be possible in the time frame.

After doing this however it seemed that the paper was quite fragile and the process of the perforation was quite inaccurate so it doesn’t seem like this would be a good idea.

Creative Industry Practice: Pastiche1560 Final Video and Label

This is a pastiche video emulating the work and style of French illustrator Malika favre I decided to choose Malika because I have followed her work for sometime on social media and out of the practitioners who’s work I enjoy most I thought her style in it’s simplicity would be best to try and emulate. So I began by looking through some of her work and picking out key features and similarities I could use in my animation then I started to look how these features could be incorporated as video transitions. My initial idea for the video was to conduct an interview with Malika but after hearing she wasn’t available I decided to create a video using quotes I had gathered from her other interviews and try to order them in a way that comes off as answers to questions from students about their place in the creative industry.

Here is a link to my final video.
