Jamie. Just thought I'd show you this project my foundation group did in Jim Sajovic's class. It reminds me of what we are doing now but with some different restrictions and subject matter.
_we painted (with india ink) about 30 6"x6" compositions.
_about every five comps were a group that sequentially transformed from one image to animation cells.
_then we used those comps to create a big comp (30"x30"). We could crop and rotate the originals in photoshop and then print them out for pasting.
_in crit we tried to analyze each comp in the room using lots of adjectives to objectively describe the images.

just thought I'd tell you, don't know why. I guess that seeing the consistencies in projects like this only go to show me that it is a universal tool in vis com.
Even though the book was a really big project/burden that turned out pretty well I Don't feel to attached to it. I do feel pretty attached to the ideas that were brought to my attention from it. I feel the compositions were strong and craft was fare, but no element exceeded my expectations as much as my new found (re-found) ability to develop and carry out big plans/ideas. So in a sentance-personal growth was the most valued thing I feel I've taken away with me from this assignment.
