11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Beatles on Canvas on: May 22, 2009 10:01:08 AM
this is awesome! i love vector style paintings on canvas, i did one for my room not too long ago and im just itching to make a few more to put up around it.

your composition is great as well, you picked the perfect size canvas for just the right amount of negative space, very well done!

wow thank you all for your comments! for those asking about what my professor thought, he loved it! he was really glad that I followed through on my concept and told me to keep it for sure and that he would keep his eye out for a call for entries for some sort of exhibition. It was a huge compliment for me Smiley

It was a LOT of tedious work, so im so happy that it came together and you all really appreciate it!

woah! this is brilliant (Tongue) did you paint those black circles on the rest of the lightbulbs as well?

Oh i should have clarified, the middle bulb that says Design is painted, where as all of the others are paper pendants dangling inside of each of the light bulbs.

i made christmas ornaments in the same way:
14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Lightbulb Concept Map on: May 19, 2009 01:07:12 PM
I wasnt sure if this would fit anywhere else, i mean its made of glass lightbulbs, but its 3D concept map for a class project.

Anyway, in one of my Design lectures in college or final project was to make a concept map connecting different concepts we learned in class, and then visually represent it anyway you wanted to. My overall concept was Cognition and Perception in Design, i made the map on paper, and then used lightbulbs (=thinking=cognition, get it!?) i learned to hollow them out from multiple tutorials on here and in intructables.

its made up of 29 hollowed out light bulbs, and 1 painted lightbulb, and took forever to put together, but its really quite stunning in person and i thought you all would appreciate it!

*NOTE: the 29 hollowed out bulbs have a paper pendant dangling in the center with the term, only the bulb that lights up and says Design was painted

the middle bulb lights up!

I love this in person, and would love to hang it in my room, but since it is just so massive and I dont want to stare at a concept map everyday, i plan on making a smaller version (7-ish bulbs?) with the left over bulbs and put in pictures/designs that go with my room to hang it Smiley ill post pictures of that when i get around to it!

I think they look beautiful.. What kind of glue did you use for the stencil? Spray adhesive or tape?

I actually used vinyl shelving liner. it seals well and is easy to take off and reusable if you let it dry before the next time you stick it on. plus if you cut it the size of printer paper you can print right on it with a laser jet printer!
16  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Change the world? on: March 16, 2009 10:45:21 AM
So another surface design project! we had to illustrate how we would change the world, what the issue was and how we would solve it. I chose a pay it forward kind of thing, do three really nice things for three people, and instead of them doing something nice to you in return, they do three nice things for three OTHER people, spreading joy and happiness around the world! i represented it with light bulbs and electrical sockets, my silhouette jumping in joy and lighting up three bulbs which in turn are making their way to lighting up three more, yayyyyy

anyways on to the pics!

First material: plexiglass, this is the original design, but some got scrapped off, our acrylic inks dont stay permanently on the plexiglass

i dont know if you can see it in this picture, but the blue is printed on the back of the glass while the yellow and black layers on top

you can see the shadow from the black on the blue to get a better idea here, it looks really awesome in person, pics do no justice

material two: a sweatshirt! i changed the layout a bit to wrap around the sweatshirt

i had been in the screen printing lab for 8 hours strait working on this, so near the end i got a bit exhausted and made some pretty dumb screw ups and got blots on the sweatshirt, oops Sad
17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / NANERS!!!! on: March 16, 2009 10:35:38 AM
so long story short, my boyfriend and his roommates constantly yell NANERS at each other and put bananas in each other's rooms and leave notes saying naners and they go nuts. I make them fun crafts based off inside jokes with one of their faces on them, but the kick is, everyone EXCEPT whos face is on the craft knows about it and then everyone surprises them.

ex: i made them mugs with chodi's face on them:

and now, it was andrews turn! so i made them naners shirts!

close up of one of the final shirts

the stencil i exposed my screen with, which took FOREVER to get right

my beautiful screen Smiley (i was gonna put a banana on the back shoulder of all of them, but once i was there for several hours and burned my elbow on the iron while heat setting, i said screw it haha)

watching them dry a bit after the hair dryer crapped out on me

dry dry dry!

ta-da!! done! Smiley

unfortunatly, i lost my camera between then and when i gave them out at his party that night, so i didnt get a picture of them all together Sad

but heres the picture of andrew i started with for reference:

i love it! your picture fits so perfectly, it's almost like you designed the picture specifically to fit inside that oval shape
19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Edward Scissorhands Story on: March 07, 2009 04:15:28 PM
For my surface design class we had to retell a story in four compositions using a monoprinting technique... it was my first time screen printing, and i LOVED it! we had to work with a partner though (randomly assigned=dud) which made the process pretty stressful, but it turned out just as i hoped! anyway, onto the pics!

here's the set

1) Peggy making her way up to the mansion

2) this is to represent her taking ed home with her and caring for him, the mother she is, and teaching him about live in the suburbs

3) to represent when edward flourishes with his topiaries and eventually haircuts, and just to show his acceptance in the neighborhood
(sorry the colors got so weird in this one!)

4) then finally to represent the ending, when the nighborhood turns on him, shunning him out, and forcing him back up to the mansion where he came from

so glad to have started screen printing! and now that ive taken the class, i have full access to my schools screen printing lab for the rest of my college career, yay! let me know what ya think!

i live for glass etching, its so simple, like you said! those libby shot glasses... first thing i etched Smiley haha we still use them! i find it easier though to cut the contact paper flat, and then stick it on, i feel like i have more control that way. very cute
