For those of you that have completed the poster, I'd like you to try out this tutorial that uses both Illustrator and Photoshop to create an abstract background that might be part of our yearbook cover this year. When complete, post the finished design to your journal.
If you get done the color poster and the abstract, I'd like to see you create a cover for this year's 2013 Shield. The theme of this year's book is "change." The required elements are the title "Shield," the year "2013," We need ideas for how you would go about showing change graphically - that could mean a timeline of photos, a morphing from one element to a new element. It would be a good idea to thumbnail ideas before trying to create a digital version. Thumbnail sheets are on the drawing table for this purpose. The document size should be 9 x12 inches with .125" of bleed.
Look on the bulletin board and try to remember to incorporate the principles of design - balance, contrast, pattern, emphasis, rhythm, variety, and unity. Post your thumbnails and ideas to your journal when complete. I will try to call into class early to answer any possible questions. I'll also monitor my twitter feed during the day. Tag any questions with #tchsart and I'll answer them as soon as I can.
Make sure you post the results of today’s work to your journal and stay busy!
