So for our 2D Design class we have a final project as half of our grade. This final project is based on either community-problem-solving with the arts or we can create a product to sell. Within the ‘Product’ category we have the option of doing an artists-book (in an edition of 3 all the same).
I was thinking about the community-project but the thing is I don’t know my community very well and I’m nervous about talking about things. Product didn’t really catch my eye either. But the artists-book did. I could show who I am as an artist at this moment (it’s going to change so much I think) and I’m kinda thinking about working with the FaceBeasts. I would do the BirdFolk but… I dunno. I love em but I’m kinda nervous to share them. They are my babies and I’m not sure what direction to take with them anymore.
I’ve said it in here, here, here , and here about how I kinda think about the FaceBeasts. With this artist book though I want to take most of the FaceBeasts (still working on a better name) to a more Paleocene/Eocene/Oglicene/Pliocene/Pleistocene themed place. It makes sense. But I want it as a field guide for them living in the lands with people. And there’s like three subsets of FaceBeasts: True Beauties, False-Beauties, and something more carnivorous/marsupial. And FaceBeasts are all mammals/marsupials except for the False-Beauties which can be kinda reptilian/avian. If anyone remembers the Beauty-Beast that would be a good example (outdated though) of a False-Beauty type.
ALSO. Guys. Guys. Did you know that Pentel makes mechanical pencil-leads in red and blue? I am now the proud owner of a pair of pencils with just red and blue leads in them. So useful already. I am excited! Uh, since I’m babbling: What do you all think I should include?
So far it goes:
- Introduction-Creation Myths
- Environmental Studies
- Anatomical Studies
What do you all think? I’m kinda winging it but I want it to read like a handbook/field-guide. :/ Tell me your thoughts in a message here, ask-box-ask, or in a Fan-Mail thing. I really appreciate your thoughts folks. So, talk to me maybe?
