As I recently got engaged, I was looking through a wedding magazine and thought it would be fun to use ‘brides’ from the magazine as ‘bodies’ to create ‘typewriter- characters’. Linking the idea to: ‘type’.. ‘you’re my type’; ‘you’re just not my type”.
I decided to use some of the mark-making methods explored in Exercise 2.4 to create background layouts for these ‘typewriter’- characters.
I also used one of the sketches previously drawn (Exercise 2.0) as a background for one of the characters.
I incorporated one of the sea shell mandalas into one of the layouts.
For one of the backgrounds, I tore some of the African fabric printed paper and made a collage of different patterns.
I completed the background layouts using collage. I added some phrases digitally.
Out of these background layouts, I liked the one with the sea shell mandala in the background the most. I think it created a cool effect.
