The event that I am creating is a small workshop that entails creating your own poem based on your topic of interest and following up with creating the illustrations visuals to go together with the poem
There are many different types of poem structures and techniques but I choose the one that has is gives the most freedom for beginners known as a “free verse”
I started with a poem generator and inputting keyword prompts, but I felt that it lacked the originality of creating my own poem as they are forming my sentences so I choose to use the key prompts to create a short sentence that I felt flows to the next line.
Purpose / target audience
An attempt for allowing space to express one’s inner thoughts/episode/chapter through the medium of poetry and illustrations
Kids from age 7-12 Teenagers from 13-23 (open to public

Prompts will be given to help aid the ideation process
Expand and rearrange the different sentences to flow the best
Creating the visuals illustrations via a choice of medium (doodles / collaging / stitching)
Main Goal: engage the colorful and excitment side of chemistry
Name: Crescent Age Range: 19-26 years old
Status: Student, undergraduate
Challenges: Mainstream media stereotypes science as a boring mundane job prospect Not seeing the excitement of being a scientist
Preferred Channels: Looks for answers in research papers and library books Communicates on Twitter and forums
Preferred Content-Type: Eye-catching pictures to draw their attention
mood board / inspiration:
Main Idea: To create a fantasy-like scene that includes the instruments used in the chemistry label and also combine the two themes of the Woman in Chemistry and Corannulene. The lady in the middle of the composition will be holding up the corannulene with rays emitting out of it.
LAB VISIT: Photo taken in the lab for references
Approaching with the combination theme of the Woman in Chemistry and Corannulene. Aesthete in Chemistry is presenting a person who is appreciative of and sensitive to art and beauty. Embracing the unseen beauty of chemistry in combination with the technical aspect of chemistry is represented by the instruments commonly used. This creates an opposition to the nature of art and nature, striking an interesting visual comprehension of the excitement after gathering findings through experiment and exploration.
She sits on a blank canvas staring into the wind
Her pair of greyish-blue eyes blend into the breeze
She sits in a quiet place of her soul,
Where things doesn’t need to flow,
She breathes in a thin drift of silence
She sways to the rhythm of the verse
She exhale as she reaches for her envelopes
to compose her thoughts
to pen down her oughts
I grew and I have outgrown this chapter
The old house I am in no longer fits
Thou I tried to mends the leaks
It snapped, it crashed, it threw a big fit
I picked up my roots and take a leave
In my house I will put a beautiful tree
A big snuggly sofa to sit and drink
All whom in the room are the ones
I trust and treasure the most
Here is where I thrive afloat
In the corner of the room lies a box
A box of things I no longer need
Yet I kept it to remind my needs
Poem Three. Egged
I shot an arrow at the sun
It hit, I didn't miss
It popped and the yellow yolk came gliding down like bliss
It's warm It's fuzzy
the greeny hill that I stood on is now overflowing and glistering
It drips it seeps
into the tiniest cracks
It fills the hollow gap in between the valley and me
I look at my reflection as I ponder its taste
it's sweet it's savoury
It's crispy it's salty
bits and pieces of familiarity overwhelm me
I sat down and took a bite
before lying down in the running yellow pit
thinking about what it could've been
You are to create an illustrated portrait using the facemask technique in SPARK AR STUDIO. Exploring the concept of visual narrative, you will create a stylized self-portrait by illustrating an AR filter to represent your personality. Consider how you can best represent yourself in order to express personality and unique characteristics. The idea is to communicate who you are as an individual and as an illustrator; experimenting with stylization. Focus is encouraged towards a more stylized interpretation rather than a realistic drawing.
Research & Inspiration
To begin with the project, I research other creative’s works on Spark AR. These are some of the imagery inspirations I have collected for my mood board. I wanted to go for a more comic hand drawn stylisation to reflect on my personality.
2. Artist Statement / Sketches
I asked myself a few questions to interview myself
What are the 3 emotions that I want to frequently experience this year?
1. Happiness, Carefree life without judgement
2. Giggling, Making funny jokes and moments with friends
3.Peace, Being comfortable to stretch out of my usual zone
What are 3 things I want to achieve this year?
1. Exploring a new style of illustration
2. Take life at a slower pace
3. Spend more time with family and friends
Keywords that I conclude to:
Carefree, Ability to adapt to various situations, Onwards Positivity in life, full of motion and joy, interaction with friends, loving and caring.
I created a series of small character humans to represent the different sides of me. Each figure represents a different outlook on life— representing happy-go-lucky, hugging poses to cherish yourself, marching with a positive stance.
Tried various backgrounds but it was a little too distracting after adding multiple planes over the base face mesh. After playing with various colours, the mix of pastel blue, pink and yellow expressed the joyfulness and liveliness the best out of the rest of the pieces.
3. Exploration / Experiment
Adding more plane layers to create a more interesting depth composition
Creating a circular motion of the characters rotating around the face, using the spin function.
Final Illustration Artwork
This is how the illustration looks like when all the layers are stacked on top of one another. Each human plays a role in the composition, with the main core that is flowing to the centre of the face mesh.
