Project 2 – Forrest Gump Progress

Hey guys!

So my film is The Iron Giant. It’s an animated feature film by Warner Brothers and it came out in 1999. I don’t remember where I first saw it and how many times I saw it (a lot) but I remember crying the first time I saw it (before I became the monotone emotionless person you see today). I liked it at first because it’s about a giant robot. But the more I saw it, the more the message in the film spoke to me. ANYWAY, here’s the designs I thought of so far.

So this one was based off a quote by one of the main characters. He’s talking about a soul and the way he described it made it seem very light and ephemeral which is something I tried to capture.


I tried to expand on the idea of “forever and ever” for the below piece. So now there’s an infinity symbol.soul-2

I wanted to do something more close up and I came up with this version of the quote.inside

This was my totebag design. I felt like the “US” in the quote was really the big important part of it, so I wanted that to be the focus. All the other things inside were meant to illustrate the feeling of being cool.welcome-to-coolsville


So after the consultation and seeing everyone’s work here and there, I realised I don’t fully utilise the space of the frame. I leave a lot of white space. So I’m gonna make it black space and hope it works out.
