2 out of 101 Design Basics
Welcome back to Design 101
You really have to love this MOOC 🙂 Each day we receive a very creative, funny postcard-video with our homework. Normally homework is nothing that you want to do, but with this great presentation you are eager to start right away. As a teacher I should consider to design the homework as well in such a creative way to activate my students 😉
Yesterdays homework was to ask a friend to take a portrait picture of ourself and then to take one of ourself. Additional we were asked to make a sketch out of the portrait.
Horror, me and drawing a sketch, a no go. But, after what I heard in the video postcard:
“They don’t have success unlike they have fun what they are doing. To conquer your fear, do not sit at home, get out and get busy. “
I thought I’ll better get busy and open my gimmickry. I thought about what I did as a kid and copied from a photo and finally altered it with an image editing program. Here is the result.
However, it somehow reminds me on Edvard Munch’s painting “The scream” or “Scary Movie” 😉
Taking a photo of myself wasn’t the problem, thanks to the self-timer of the camera. I edited it additional with Photoshop using an art filter.
Well, homework 02 finished. Not necessarily the work of a designer, but I tried. If you want to see far better photos and sketches, it’s still time to sign in Design 101 and take a look yourself.
