@ tinnethea

For the project, Forrest Gump, we are required to create a visual interpretation of our favourite movie quote.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is the movie of my choice! I love watching this movie, being that I could somehow relate to the main character, and the words she’d say just hits me in words I can’t really explain.

Here’s my Read more →

@ Just around the Riverbend

Hello everyone! At long last, our first project for 2D is finished! I found it a little troublesome to upload all my images of my documentation and monoprints etc here, so I created a pdf for it and will upload that instead. My entire process and reflection can be viewed in it, as well as my Read more →


Well done! nice video as a complement to your pdf presenting your design thinking in  each stage of the journey from the brief to finished design. The line ideas came to life through actual production. Please keep posting on OSS. In particular idea generation for Project 2.

18 Lines of Emotions

I personally like Arousal, Enthrallment, Hysteria, Mortification, Outrage, Remorse and Revulsion a lot.

Thanks for the digital edit, I really loved how all my lines turned out from monoprints and scans. I love how there can be even more edits and changes made to a single print which can easily turn out to be describe different emotions!

Also, thank you for Read more →

nicely refined monoprints! Abstraction of the lines are well supported with emotion tags; your abstract designs communicate key emotions through the change of scale, textures, and various treatments. All are very efficient.

@ likethatlor.

Finally it’s the submission for Proj 1 – MY LINE IS EMO ! *cheers*

It’s been a long 5 weeks working on this project, and making progress from mark-making and monoprint to digital alterations on our lines and to finally printing them out on D-DAY! 

Have been rather busy on working on projects, and thus lacking the time to document my process along Read more →

When uploading photos (of monoprint scans) - ensure the image is not set up to thumbnail size - at least medium resolution. In this post,  your photo with dot lines is ok size. The rest of the images is too small.  I can explain in class if this is not clear. The monoprints are rich in detail and the 'noise' can be picked up by a scanner and nicely reflected in digital format.

@ Natasya Adistana

Hi guys! Here is the process of my handmade emo lines!

1. LOVE – Obsession

I used pieces of cut foam, put it under the paper and use the roller with thin ink to create the pattern. (image 1-4) I divided the paper into five parts and roll it with various rolling movement and ink content, e.g. roll the roller vertically/ horizontally/ diagonally with Read more →
oh my gosh! such an eclectic and  interesting methods. you are so so courageous! well done. You have incorporated elements from different material sources and managed to express a diverse array of ideas! Please keep the raw files in your hard copy journal  as a vocabulary or even to consider as a style in future projects.
Thanks Ina! Ofc I am keeping all the hard copy:)

@ Natasya Adistana

Hi guys! So up there is my final lines for our 2D Project 1 – My Line is Emo 😀

Let’s briefly go through them one by one!

1. LOVE – Obsession

This line was inspired by Andy Warhol’s Shadows where he painted a single image 102 times with various light and shadow.

The repetitiveness of the image make me Read more →

wow! can really see all the effort put into each and every line!!! i think i particularly love your "Joy" series and especially the "complete"... really makes me feel complete! :P ehhehe
Thanks Bao! :D Hahahaaa You are not heartless so confirm always complete one! Incomplete bao is only when got no fillings :p
It would be nice to see the final lines really huge- like 15 m by 2m!  But unfortunately, we can not do that. My favorite is Hopelessness. All of your lines sit well together in spite that eclecticism of the mark making techniques.

Thank you! I also like Hopelessness! Even though the process can be considered simple and fast, the result of it after adjusting the level is really distinct and looks like interesting pieces of glass :D

@ Throne Room

I didn’t manage to take that many photos of my process (something I’ll definitely fix), but here goes nothing!

These were taken from my Visual Journal made in Photoshop. Hope you managed to understand it all!

woah super intricate details about the editing and processing! shock and love look particularly great!! :OOO

Thank you!! Don't need to bao down

Well documented details of your designs! Lines are nicely modified from the original monoprint.  You have confidence in explaining and illustrating your process. When uploading an image, make sure it is uploading at the largest size and there is Link to > Media File (on the right-hand size from the upload window).
