Chino Otsuka – Imagine Finding Me

Do you ever look at your childhood photo’s and think how much you have changed?  Well Chino Otsuka  has thought the same – the artist has superimposed herself into her childhood photos.  These are so fanastically done, it seems as though she was there when the photo was taken.

Take a look at her site for further information http://chino.co.uk/

SET TASK STARTING POINTS – CIRCLE MAPS

Here are the circle maps that you produced in class the other day – click on the image to enlarge it.  I have added a few more ideas in black.   Also have a look at the Judgemeadow Pinterest page to help you as well.   Here is the link www.pinterest.com/judgemeadow

Think outside the box and remember to choose a starting point that will keep you interested.  You will be working on it for the next 12 weeks!

Psychology of Colour

You may want to consider colour association when using colour –  try and work hand in hand with the theme/content as well.  I know it’s American but it can still help.  Print it out and stick it in your sketchbook.

Changing Faces

Great inspiration with the images attached if you are looking to develop your portrait work for your controlled portfolio.

Use old/new photos to make new compositions or develop your theme further when it comes to portraiture.  There is also an example of an A Level sketchbook page showing you how you can pay reference to the artists’/techniques to develop your work.

Story Telling

Here are some examples of artworks/illustrations based around comics or video games.  These are a good reference point for some of you if you are looking to tell some sort of story with your theme.

 Consider the layout, use of text, body language/expression or colour of the artworks – this could help you with your own work.  Remember photos – pay reference to the work below to help you think of new ideas to develop your composition and photography skills.  Lighting is key; you could take photo’s in the Drama studio or use lighting at home to get the dramatic effect seen in the artwork below.  Also consider camera angles when taking photos – if you are wanting to get a dramatic effect, look at the IronMan and Batman example.

Grrr Part 2

Hybrid animals – interesting and fun way of looking at the theme of identity.  You could use the following as inspiration when taking photos for AO3 – take photos of animals and people.  Print them out, cut them up and paste them together to make your own hybrid.image7

Grrr Part 1

Here are some example layouts of drawings where the animal theme has been explored.  Many of you still need to develop AO1 (Develop) and AO3 (Record) in your prep work.  Continue to produce observational drawings using pencil tone, coloured pencils or biro.  Consider the layout of your sketchbook page.  Remember those marks needed to get the grade you want.
