Even though they may not be as impressive as the others, i still love them and i ventured out to new techniques and compositing for graphic design which i barely done before. These are valuable learning experiences for me.

Final- Rhymes (Humpty Dumpty)


These are the final 4 chosen images for Humpty Dumpty.

As i realised that images by Hannah Hoch wasn’t my style, i have decided to go for the simple and clean look for all of my images. While i was doing all of these, the idea in my mind was “would i be able to do it if i were to do it in real life,by cutting and pasting”. Hence these images are created.

I also created the in such a way that they will link to each other some sort or other. The “weird object” is present in 3 images, the main link and the “egg” physical or implied, has appeared among the images too. This is how i created the link for my picture set.


Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall


Humpty Dumpty had a great fall


All the king’s horses and the king’s men


Could not put humpty together again

Could not put humpty together again

Decisions, decisions


With the help of Prof Ina, a few of the designs were picked out. In order to compare and see them as a set, the selected designs were put in a table like that.

All the king’s horses and the king’s men

The one i had most problem choosing was this line. I like the different styles. One of the most experimented was this. I tried the negative space, rhythm, symmetry, using a grid, gestalt theory here!

Next post will be the final 4 images!

Humpty Lamb


I had consultation with Prof. Ina and it was very useful as i was getting lost in what i was supposed to do.

For the Lamb. Prof Ina suggested the I could surround the lamb with lamp chops instead of covering it with lamb chops. Go for a more straightforward connection?

These are some of the variations and compositions i made based on that:

Mary had a little lamb

As i worked on, i realised that it was difficult to work on the rest of the verses for mary had a little lamb. Since i had interesting ideas for humpty dumpty, i decided to create compositions for humpty dumpty instead.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall


i continued to play with the space and also the compiled wall


Humpty Dumpty had a great fall


The previous composition was a big no-no. I tried with new ideas and found that this would work and it has a very interesting juxtaposition too. Is the person jumping, flying or falling? I also wanted reoccurring elements in the whole set. Hence in this compostion, i used the question mark to replace the wheel, (since human brain can complete the circle by itself) and also the weird object.


All the king’s horses and all the king’s men

This was the line that i have the most fun with trying out different compositions.

I made the composition from my first try less messy and more systematic with all the soldiers facing the same direction.



Couldn’t put Humpty together again

This was a tough one for me. I have no idea how to show this but i remembered the weird object. It look like a garlic bulb to me. once i break apart the garlic, I could never piece them back together again. This was where i got my inspiration from. cannotfix8


Assignment Rhyme


Out of the 3 given rhymes, i started to explore compositions for “Mary had a little lamb” and “Humpty Dumpty”.

This is the very first composition i came out with for “mary had a little lamb”


The idea of this was to lamb chops(below) and collage it into the shape of a lamb.

lamb_chop 2t lamb-chop t


I used the values on the lamb chop to show the form of the lamb. However, after completion, it is difficult to tell that it is a lamb collage.

I had no idea how to start on this project and i went for the most obvious way to do. The start of a new project is always difficult, however once i got started, more ideas came to my mind.


After studying the notes, i noticed the brilliant use of negative space and how human brain will auto complete images even if it isn’t. I used the shared resources and i found a weird object and arches. I tried playing with it and i thought it would be interesting for me to create the illusion of a face and a wall by using this.

I like this idea and i went on exploring more variations.


Other than arches, sunflower seeds, especially when stack together, they look like bricks of the wall too. I recreate the “wall” by varying the sizes and the variety of seeds. The seeds are created by different values of threshold which allows us to see the different form of the same seed.

Some other different compostions for the wall:


a very direct interpretation of humpty dumpty sitting on a wall

this image is flat and it doesnt have much composition sense to it.

All the king’s horses and the king’s men

one concept that i was working with for this sentence was being systematic. In a army, systematic is present everywhere. I didnt want to lose the “humpty dumpty” in this sentence, hence i choose to retain the egg in this verse. A normal egg would be too boring, so i found the eggs in cups.


Inside the cup, there are tribal warriors (seen as the kings men here) lined up. I kept the systematic and symmetry through my compositions

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall


this was created as a link to the very first composition. I tried emphasizing on the fall, hence making the question mark big.
