Moemena Hezwani Independent Practice
This Is Just The Beginning One entity I enjoyed about this project was the ability to explore new areas of practices. For example, after having an induction on screen-printing last year, I was able to continue on with this process, but experimenting with different way to print my artwork. For instants I learnt how to screen print of t-shirts and using different forms of paper. Which I rather enjoyed as it made my artwork look more orthotic and professional. I would like to advance my experiences in this process, to print of more t-shirts of my artwork and learn new methods of screen-printing. I also learned how to lino print at home, by stencilling out my artwork (free hand) and then using ink-blocking paint to create a print. It was a long process, however I was pleased and surprised with the outcome, it was a spontaneous experiment and it worked extremely well. In the future I would like to carry on in experimenting new ways of printing, in the form of trail and error and see what comes out of it, as Iâ€™d hope good results. Another area of this unit I enjoyed was the ability to future my knowledge of mediums I enjoy personally, for example; typography, mark making, illustration and photography. I was able to touch up my skills on these areas individually and I learned to combine these areas to create interesting and articulate peaces of artwork. I found myself more experimentally with my ideas and thought trails with this unit, for instances, if I had an idea in mine I would try it out and play around with the idea to see if it would work or not. I found myself growing slightly with this unit, as usually if an idea did not work I would normally leave it and not continue on with it. However I learn to use the mistakes to my advance, in committing to my idea and seeing it to the end; which I am extremely content that I do so as I am please with the outcome I obtained. However, there are a few areas of improvement I would like to touch upon in the next units, is time management. I had this fixation in having to perfect every little detail in my work, this can be a positive trade, and in the same time it did waste a lot of my time and found myself falling behind in my work. Furthermore, if I was to improve on my work in this unit, I would like to create an illustrative book in presentation all my hand rendered typography and illustration, with a forces narrative. If would do this book for two reason; firstly to future my knowledge of bookbinding and secondly, I feel that a book would best represent my artwork in a unique and graphical aspect.
