I decided to go for this style for my project 3. As mention previously, I will be using Me at this Time to present my work. Here is the work that I have done and will be improving on it.
I used illustrator to create my face using this photo as reference.
What are some things to improved on are adding more details for the face features and also adding a neck will make the composition more complete and not look so weird.
I used a bed to represent my hall and added a clock that stops at 7.30 which is the time that I wake up for classes.
What are some things to improved on a is the scene it too plain. Maybe changing the setting and the clock to something more funky will helps. Will try and explore for this part.
I used cloud to symbolize dream, where she is sleeping and do not want to get out of bed. There is also a character holding balloons drifting among the cloud, which represent she still want to wander in her dreams.
The idea for my 4 setting will be what am I doing at certain timing. Here are some of the settings that I have brainstormed and will be working on it. It’s like a day of what I am doing during the weekdays when there is school.
7.30am Tired me + morning in hall = don’t want to get out of bed 8.15am Exhausted me + canteen = time to get coffee 9am Energetic me + school = time to start working 2pm Drained me + late afternoon in hall = nap time 7pm Recharged me + night in hall = rush assignment
At first I was going for the digital collage style. However I realize that it is quite hard to play with colors there. I am still trying to figure out on the go.
I went on and try a different style which is pop art or comic style. Where I also included myself into the composition.

I was thinking of combining different style for different columns.
Me (comic style) + Setting (digital collage/flat design)
However, I feel that it might be too messy for my whole project and it might not sync well with one another. Still trying to work on it.
Here are some examples that I found on Pinterest for pop art.

Initially, I wanted to create a character that represent me throughout the project. However, after doing more research, I decided to discard the character idea and go for digital collage.
He concentrates particularly on “retro” visuals from the 1900s to the 1970s, and this, in addition to a great fondness for Magritte and a strong taste for the geometric, produces scenes and environments that playfully evoke the fascinating mythology of a not-too-distant future.
My work now is too flat, the contrast between each element is not strong enough. Thus, I will play around more with the different element and determine which element is the focus.
