Step 1.

Brainstorm ten descriptive words that you can easily visualize. Choose two of your favorites.

Step 2.

Do five abstract sketches using lines, shapes, and textures that you feel convert the meaning of each of your words. You will do ten total sketches, five for each word. Examine what worked and didn’t work in your sketches.

  • Step 2 Due: Monday September 19th.

More updates to follow after the weekend:


Step 3.

Digitize your sketches, and refine your idea as you work. There are many ways you can approach this project, you may want to print out your word set in a particular typeface, and then trace and draw over it with tracing paper and then scan. You can also work directly from your sketches by scanning them and brining them directly into Illustrator.

Step 4.

For Monday the 26th print out your work in progress for informal in class review.
