For the last class in February, we learned a final image transfer technique from Jason Kofke (one of The Creatives Project Artist in Studio residents). We then started designing ideas for our upcoming mural project. Toward the end of class, Keif and Daniel visited to share in our critique and to advise us on our mural ideas.
This week we worked on projects with Fatimah Abdullah and Molly Rose Freeman (both Artist-in-Studio Residents with The Creatives Project). Fatimah showed us the rough cut animation of our walk cycles we drew at the last class. (You can check out the video here: https://vimeo.com/86473932). Molly introduced us to Indonesian shadow puppetry and we started developing our puppet characters. Brigitte Taylor from Suite Brigitte also visited to talk to us about the causes we are interested in and to lead us on a visualization and meditation exercise.
This week we worked on projects with Lucha Rodriguez and Jason Kofke (both Artist-in-Studio residents at The Creatives Project). Jason challenged us to draw an archaic slide-projector-television and then showed us different drawing and image manipulation tricks, including the camera obscura and camera lucida. Lucha continued to help us make personal logos and stickers.
This week Fatimah Abdullah (The Creatives Project 2013-15 Studio Resident) continued to teach us about hand-drawn animation. Using the characters we designed in the last class, we set our figures in motion sheet by sheet on back-lit animation tables. The back-lighting and translucent paper allowed us to see our character’s previous position as we drew the next frame. Stay tuned for our compiled animation!
