Geometric vs. Organic Lines

Often, people mention that the world is black and white, and similarly, emotions through lines could have two derivatives, straight or organic. However, just like how that grey areas exist as well, the simple two derivative lines could be manipulated to create various patterns that explore the human condition. Through this project, I largely explored the differing Read more →

before i could even read ur write up, i can already see and feel the influence from some of those artists! so nicely done justinneeeee
hahaha thank you filzahhh! :D
Damn girl, devastation and restricted particularly stood out for me!! :)))) and alienated too... Cool concept of the artists <3 loved the overall  hehe
Love the scale and the way you made it easy for us to see the details of the final emotive lines. You have shown consistency in design thinking. You have justified the use of  scanning and manipulation with media. The final image of the print file ( the one with all of the lines) could be opening in a separate window- so we can see more of it. This could be done by selecting "link to media" when uploading  image. Please move to next project  about movies and replace the mark making with image making :) you will need to think in images.

This is Exasperation. It’s frayed apart and is a visual representation of how one would feel under intense annoyance.

This is Irritation. I felt like Irritation starts with one starting point and just grows more and more wild from there. Which is seen in the picture

This is Vengeance. As a more methodical kind of anger, there is a Read more →

nice work king!! esp the isolation and optimism
It would be awesome to see the lines bigger in this post :)  We could see the invisible interaction between elements and white spaces - that we can not see in the hard copy...only through the super eye of the scanner and digital vision we can dwell on detail. When you click on the image it can appear bigger and  in the floating window. In order to get that you need to  check Link >Media File when uploading... I can explain in class.
All of your line are in the perfect harmony!

The internet allows us to learn so much. After spending much time surfing on  and google, I came across some techniques that could potentially help me for my lines.

That’s all! 🙂

For my final 18 lines, I had a mixture of drawing, watercolour and digital.

Agitation- This was originally part of my monoprint. It was created using fake flowers. I decided to duplicate them and arrange them as such. It looks like agitation to me because of its lines and messiness.

Amazement- These were also created from Read more →

very diverse and exciting treatments of your lines. Each of your samples is different and inspiring. By contrasting methods of making you have achieved drama and lot of surprise. I am glad you were able to test all the techniques and come with solutions to the brief The only thing is size of the uploaded images- we need to see these bigger - you can wait for me to explain in class..OSS likes to crunch by default to thumbnail size.

@ Meils

These are my final 18 lines for the project & explained why the lines are representing the different emotions. I mainly focused on decalcomania with the mixture of mono print and hand drawn.

Little speckles of ‘light’ among the darkness.

Veins/nerves stretching out.

Paint marks splattered up like a blood scene.

Mimics the disgusting worm when scanned inside the stomach.

Different flow in opacity just Read more →
