2D – Project 2 Process of Totebag Making

From the beginning, we are suppose to pick one quote out of the 4 and transfer the design onto the tote-bag. The quote that I have been working on is:

Life’s a climb, but the view is great. – Hannah Montana: The Movie

I have changed my design several time, and this is the final design that I have transfer onto the tote-bag. I did the whole process of silkscreen printing again to get my design onto the silkscreen.

This is the design on the silkscreen.


Testing out the final design on paper.

Finally, I did it onto my tote-bag!!


2D – Project 2 Process v6

After consultation, these are the updated design from the previous development and there is one more movie quote to complete the whole project.

I’ll never let go, Jack. I promise. – Titanic (1997)

This is the updated design, where I added in the waves to symbolize the ocean. The whole idea is still the same as I mention in my previous post, where the skull representing the death on Jack. While at the back of his mind, he have never forgotten about Rose till the last minute as you can see in the design where there is roses and a woman face.


Anyone can be anything – Zootopia (2016)

In my previous post, I mentioned that the geometry effect I use for the animal was too off from the human face design as the lines are not prominent enough. Thus, I went on to explore more on different images and this is the latest design. Where a woman trying to become something that she want to be. I uses animal as they all have different personalities, it is able to bring out the idea of what the woman is trying to achieve. Be it the characteristic of a wolf or a cat.


I realize now that dying is easy, living is hard. – If I Stay (2014)

She sees Denny in a room with a patch over his eye. She overhears the doctors say that both Kat and Denny are dead, and that if Mia wakes up at all, she is going to be an orphan. Fearing for Teddy, Mia runs to his room to check on him and promises to never leave his side.
Mia runs downstairs and sees Teddy’s room empty. The doctors talk to her grandparents and inform them that Teddy had an epidural hemorrhage and they couldn’t save him. Mia breaks down and realizes Teddy will never get to grow up and live a full life. This sudden shock physically disturbs Mia, and the doctors take her out of the ICU for further medical attention.


The quote says that dying is easy, I uses a girl hanging upside down because she doesn’t know what to do anymore and the rope to represent how vulnerable life is if she decided that she wants to end her life.  She is still struggling between living and dying, there is something on earth that she doesn’t want to let go, which must be something beautiful and would make her want to stay. So should her expression be happy or sad? Thus, I use flowers to cover her facial expression.


2D – Project 2 Process v5

I have to come out with 3 more design linking to any movie quotes. I went on and search some of the movies that I watched and did the design based on this quotes.

I’ll never let go, Jack. I promise. – Titanic (1997)

The ship breaks in half, lifting the stern into the air. Jack and Rose ride it into the ocean and he helps her onto a wooden panel only buoyant enough for one person. Holding the edge, he assures her that she will die an old woman, warm in her bed. He dies of hypothermia but she is saved.


Most people was thinking why did Rose let go of his hand after saying this sentence “I’ll never let go, Jack. I promise.” However, it was referring to the promise that Jack want Rose to not let go, as shown in the images above.

I decided to use a skull to represent the death of Jack, but in his mind he still cannot forget Rose. Thus, i added a lady to represent Rose along with the flower rose. However what are some different approach that I could consider was to make the lady the main object instead of the skull. It is because that sentence was said by Rose and she will never forget the promise that she had with Jack. Or using this design but add in some details to symbolize titanic which is to add some ocean waves, etc.


Anyone can be anything – Zootopia (2016)

In the town of Bunnyburrow, Judy Hopps is performing in a play for a talent show. The theme is that animals used to only be predator and prey, but now they have evolved to the point where they can all live side by side, and every animal can be whatever they want to be.

I use a human face and at the back of her mind there is always something she wanted to be which I use animal to represent it. I tried using the transform approach and make the lady transform into anything she want to be.


Something to improve on is the animals. As compared to the lady with thick and thin line, the lines of the animal is not prominent enough. Thus I will consider changing it to images like this.


Still trying to improve on the design and will upload the updated version soon.

2D – Project 2 Process v2

I went on to google more on different movie quote. I came across this movie quote and find it interesting. I watched the movie before starting on the composition.

Hannah Montana: The Movie – Life’s a climb. But the view is great!
He tells her that Hannah is going out of control and Miley needs to gain perspective and remember who she truly is. Instead of leaving for the World Music Awards in New York on a private jet, the Stewarts land in Crowley Corners, Tennessee, their hometown, for Miley’s grandmother’s birthday. Miley is angry at her father for the switch but Robby Ray points out that this is the life she could’ve been leading if she was not famous.


I came out with 3 different design for this quote.

1. With mountains and ladders to symbolize climbing in the scene. The sunset at the background is to illustrate on the view. Good things always come after some hardship.


2. Miley Stewart is struggling with her alter-ego and her popularity as Hannah Montana and keeping her double-life a secret from the media. Thus this design shows both side of her, one where she is just an ordinary country girl where another is the life of a singer.


3. This design shows whatever Hannah likes or love to do. It’s all inside her, be it singing, dancing, or being a country girl. It is all part of her life and all the end of the day, it’s just doing what she love.
