Here’s some art

Hi everybody ūüėÄ I recently finished an online art history course and I thought I’d share some of the pieces I put together for it.

Pew! Pew Pew! – Self Portrait with Alien Invasion

I cut out and propped up some of my drawings and dangled pieces of foil on strings in a bit of an homage to Ed Wood. It was fun but setting up a physical set was nerve-racking. The slightest little bump would send things into chaos.

Up, Up, and Away!

We were asked to do a piece based on time so I figured an animated gif would do nicely. I thought about how best to depict the scene and decided a static shot of a wall with a cast shadow would be interesting.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hare

The assignment was to transform one thing into another and back again. I went with a spoof of Jekyll and Hyde. Most of the posters I looked up for reference turned Hyde green so I thought I’d use that to tie the piece together.

My favorite assignment was to do a work based on Las Meninas by¬†Diego Vel√°zquez. I took the opportunity to recreate it in a drawn style and to animate the figures. I enjoy the little ticks in this loop, like¬†Vel√°zquez’s hand holding his brush or the figure who blink.
