Overall, the typographic portrait project is an amazing experience because I have lots of fun trying out stuff. I usually do digital imaging so for this project I’m trying to see whether I can do traditional methods as well.

Now that my stylistic research is done, i proceeded to look for inspiration from works themselves,
different artists who manage to utilise typography in their works.
Since the number of portraits have been reduced to four, I’ve narrowed down the candidates to be:Agender Ice Queen Runner Child/Nostalgia

Russian Constructivism, particularly in how they managed to use typography within their work.
Artists like Hannah Hoch were also inspirations for me, as the way she composed her

Branches// Finding me I can hide and may be hidden among the crowds at times. My heart may be hidden to. But if you look close enough, you will definitely find me in there, somewhere
Fishes in water// I feel like i am like fishes out of water, not fitting into the environment that i am in. However, at Read more →
Off to the last! Mountains!
I found many many inspiring examples on pinterest.
I really like this layering of the sky instead of the actual mountains to show the illusion of having mountains. I found out that the importance of knowing where my light is coming Read more →
With the completion of branches and water, I have decided to go with roaring waves and mountains for the final 2 piece.
Making of waves:
I was influenced with the japanese style waves, which I did for my last semester EGO project too. I like the strength that it gives and also the creativity that I am allowed to go with it.
Don’t we all never get enough of it?
How hectic our lives are as ADM students.
Compounded with the fact that I am an unpredictable insomniac.
I legit am afraid that I am unable to sleep and thus be unable to function the next day.
