Rhyme: The cat and the fiddle
Hey, diddle, diddle! The cat and the fiddle, (my chosen line) The cow jumped over the moon; The little dog laughed To see such sport, And the dish ran away with the spoon.
Process 1: Choosing the overall style (Halftone/Threshold/Posterize)
Individual halftone on cat and fiddle, respectively.
I decided to use threshold because i prefer the sharpness it gives and also the contrast. Also, some of my images doesn’t work well with halftone where they become extremely pixelated and thus losing the image.
Process 2: Exploration on technique/style (Realistic vs Minimalistic)
Process 3: Exploration on technique/style (Repetition)
Process 4: Exploration on technique/style (Playing with the negative and positive)
Since i inverted the colours, i realised some layouts turned out good in both white on black and black on white. I had some difficulties choosing the better one hence i had a idea to put them together, getting my inspirations from pop art.
To push the idea further, i was inspired to try Optical art as well.
However, after piecing it together halfway, i realised it does’t really work, hence i scraped this idea.
