This week our focus for our Analog and Digital projects is going to be on Typography. I'm going to let you choose which direction you wish to work, here are your choices:
Analog: Create a three dimensional letter sculpture of an initial or two using the Cricut to cut the basic letter shapes. You will then need to put the sculpture together using tape, cups, paper mache, and acrylic paint to color the finished piece. Be sure to watch the video below before starting this typographic project.
Think like an artist to solve this challenge - the work needs to stand up when finished.
Digital: Using Photoshop, create a typographic portrait using one of the tutorials found on this site's article, 10 Best Typography Tutorials.
