Alright, so I literally just finished sketching...I got an early start this week then didn't do much until this morning. It's really hard getting back into school mode. I can foresee this project being pushed to the back burner later in the quarter, but I'm gonna try and not let that happen.
So, my first set of prints are all based on the word gamp, aka umbrellas. In my opinion they turned out a little child like, which is ok i guess because I never really specified what age I would be working into. I guess on for my second project I will choose a category (men, women, children, home) and an age range if necessary. I decided to choose tonals for each print because my original idea was for most of the prints to be sketchy like the dickens sketch I posted earlier this week. That's not really my style, so i pushed it as much as I could in 6 days. Overall, I'm satisfied, not extremely excited for all of them, but hey, I had fun.

My real first word....GAMP-(n.) A large umbrella, in Dicken's Martin Chuzzlewit.
I have no idea what this is about, but hopefully tonight after class i'll do some research and post more about it.

Step One....steal my mom's really old beautifully bound leather dictionary.
Step Two....Every Monday I will open the dictionary to a random page and choose a random word. This word will be my focus for the week.
Step Three....Design 5 prints that associate with that word.
Step Four....Post inspiration and process pieces I work on throughout the week.
Step Five....Post my final 5 prints by Sunday.
My project will start on my first day of my last summer quarter of school June 21st.
