PROJECT TITLE: MY LINE IS EMO
Finally I managed to bring some closure to this project since Friday when the presentation ended!
Initially it was hard for me to grasp the concept of this project or be able to link the emotions to the different marks made.
In Week 2: We were told to bring mark-making tools to class to try out the black ink and the rollers. Below are the pictures of the experimental process that was done in class!
First try outs of the rollers!
Mark-making tool: Feathers
Mark-making tools(Left-Right): Roller, Side of roller, Bubble wrap, Matchsticks
Mark-making tools: Flowers, Matchsticks, Bubblewrap
Trying out the rolling techniques
Mark-making tools: Sponge
Dropping ink on the newsprint and rolling over it to create a continuous pattern.
Trying out new techniques such as rolling tissue paper into small balls and sticking them together to form a cloud like pattern.

Cover page of journal made using Magazine clippings
My inspiration page: Disney is what drives me to not give up on my dreams.
A page of the emotion: Turbulent
Method: Using sponge and turning it in a circular motion
A page of emotion: Sadness
A page of gradient tones of the same design using different methods
Tried out using geometric shapes and the cutting paper method.
Cutting Paper Method: Done using a lino cutter and cutting shapes on the paper and rolling over it using black ink.
Tried out with different contrast to see if there was any change in the emotion.
Documenting my wax works and the development of how i got 2/18 of my emotions: Grief and Joy
I was super happy upon the completion of my final 18 works as it took me very long to achieve my final 18 while the rest I did I thought was only qualified to put in my sketchbook. It took me many nights of self experimentation to finally produce ideas that were qualified as my final 18. Thinking of these emotions were hard for me and new techniques that I had to come up with was hard to achieve but im satisfied with the overall result.
