No. 2

Saturday, 9 October 2010

You're looking at my first drawing of the new term, that's right,
my 2nd year on my Graphic Design course has finally begun.

In case I didn't mention it earlier, I chose to specialise in Illustration.
But thankfully, I'll still be doing some animation! I think I made the right choice. We'll see.

So what the hell is that image about? No it is not a typical bout of pictorial rambling.
As a warm up we were asked to read Bruce Mau's Incomplete Manifesto for Growth,
and pick one statement to make a black & white image for.

I chose to make a response to No. 32: Listen Carefully.
Makes a little more sense now right?

You should give the manifesto a read. There were quite a few I agreed with,
some I already deeply follow and some I would certainly like to try, such as:

No. 2: Forget about good.
No. 18: Stay up late - Strange things happen when you've gone too far.
No. 28: Make new words - Expand the lexicon.
No. 36: Scat - When you forget words, make up something else.

There's something there for everybody.
