1. Explain how you developed your ideas for "Sticky Situation"
at first general ideas came, gum, tape, goo, stuff like that. then i had just randomly though of pacman, cause hes in a sticky situation, and it was funny. just like my last two projects, the pointing stick on Everest and the American moon. this is the same general thing, the randomest thing possible was chosen.
2. Were you able to think outside the box when you were thinking about ideas?
i think pacman is pretty outside the box, it isn't the first thing people would think of, or the last. i feel safe to say no one else even though of pacman, hence why i chose it.
3. You were to incorporate repetition, rhythm or pattern. How did you accomplish this?
yes, i think so. yes because of the shades of brown and the line of ghosts and random wight strokes on the screen, also two pacman's and well, yeah. that's enough i suppose.
4. Describe your choice of media (acrylic, watercolor) and your challenges and successes while using it.
i used acrylic, because water color isn't my favorite thing to work with. i think it ended up being good enough, i like it. it's a very random thing, and my favorite thing to do is something random. i did however have a problem with getting myself to stop using so much brown. i wanted a ton of shades, and well after some conversation, i got myself this pieces name, 50 Shades Of Brown.
5. How important were the mini lessons to the success of your final product?
mini lessons? you mean when we talked about the paint and how t use them, right? well that... ummm... i don't know really. it might have helped on a subconscious level, but i never remember going back like "hey, i remember this way to apply this paint like this". i don't think they did anything but kinda get me out of being rusty with paint. then again, subconsciously, who knows.
