TIGTIG - The Art thingyWatch
The title of my project is Unusual Angles and I have done photographs of shoes positioned on the lawn and some land art and more observational drawings of shoes. I need a few ideas for the cover of my book, the contents page and anything you might think is good. Again, sorry I didnt reply b4 but any of your ideas would be useful.
Hmm shoes sound interesting.Sounds like youve got it for fine art too.
well for the front cover i would back the book with black sugar paper and then do a footprint using a shoe/trainer as a pressprint in silver or white.Simple I know but you dont want your cover page fussy.You could stick down a protactor(angles)and walk over it with a painted shoe sole.Have a clear title at the top,make it bold use tipex to write it with.
you could get a shoeprint cut it up and place it at unusual angles you could have the title in the middle and have the pieces placed around it like an explossion.Just experiment.I've never had a contents page I think an art book should unfold itself but thats just me but go with this angle theme have your contents at angles have your writing diagonally or somthing.Just an idea drawings arnt everything try photomonages do loads of the same picture at different angles,view,closenesses cut them up and try to rearange all the different pieces so when you stick them down you'll have this picture.....that kinda looks like a picasso.....also look at cubism .ok hope I've helped.
THANK-YOU!!!! sssssoooooooooo much, your ideas r brilliant! u must b amazing at art. Thanx once again!
