Hi everyone! I guess I will kick start Assignment 2 by posting the 4 selected quotes from the movie….. POCAHONTAS!

A short summary of the movie:

Pocahontas is an animated feature film by Disney. The film is based on a real historic character, the known history, and the folklore and legend that surrounds the Native American woman Pocahontas, and features a fictionalized account of her encounter Read more →

Omgggggg I love Pocahontas!!!! (oh no a dark spin D: )
SPIN IT ALL THE WAY INTO THE DARKNESS. Except for the palefaces. These are nice quotes. Very soulful.
Awesome! Thank you for posting. The vintage treatment will do good to this so well-known movie. It will be so interesting to see the inspiration and the reference images for the quotes and design thinking.

Excellent work Bao.

Keep posting and start the movie narrative for  movie project 2

Finalising My 18 Lines




=> Monoprint

The black and white lines remind me of wrinkles that form on one’s forehead as they furrowed their eyebrows in jealousy. The lines are also very harsh and look as if paint was smeared on the wall using hands, indicating a form of desperation.

==> Hand drawn line on given template

The lines that mercilessly cross each Read more →

Hi everyone! It’s time for the submission of our 18 Lines! If you are interested to see the process of making these lines, Please follow the link below:

Part 1: Mark-Marking Tools Part 2: Mono-Prints Part 3: Artists Reference Part 4: Self-Exploration


I have learnt a lot through this assignment especially on how to create marks using different techniques. Now I finally Read more →

so cute the last pic hahaha super nice work esp the hand made ones! the emotions are really well represented
Loveeee the milk and detergent one:')) Really naiseee~
Final design choices for the lines are excellent. Is it possible to have your digital lines uploaded as a larger image ? make sure you check Link to > media file..this will ensure that image in your post opens big in a separate floating window... It would allow us to enjoy complex art-work even more :)

Thanks Ina! I was having doubt about my work after seeing everyone's incredible lines. Definitely a confidence boost! I will update the digital lines shortly.

you should be very confident! you really think well in shapes and understand spatial relationships (harmony balance) next project you have to think in images (metaphor, paradox, parody, personification...anthropomorphism..etc)

omg ur visual diary!! super nicely done <3
Excellent works Hana. You have used and considered a wide range of techniques and materials in this project. You have added extra meaning by not restricting yourself to one method only. By scanning your works and digitally manipulating them you have successfully extended and supported traditional analogue mark making. Please bring to class the soft copy of your journal on a thumb-drive..i am compiling all on my side as well as a issuu upload as well. I will put all under Project 1 for next year show and tell.

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!

@ Viena Lee Lin Tsin

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.
