Project 1: Eric Challenge:To design a vector portrait in Illustrator CS5. Choice of Theme: I chose to create a vector portrait of a close friend of mine, Eric. i wanted to portray his personality through this peice. The bright green swirls in the background remind me of an unpredictable night on the town. The color green, to me, harmonizes with Eric’s personality. Research: City lights were my inspration.


Project 2: Lifted Research Group T-Shirts Challenge: Create five t-shirt templates in Illustrator CS5. Choice of Theme: An urban style male clothing line going green for Earth Day. Lifted Research Group is very music oriented as well, so I incorperated that aspect in my designs. Research: The iguana inspired me through its beautiful green colors. LRG’s urban feel inspired my tape design.

Project 3: Saint Augustine Groove Challenge: Create a cllaboration of 50 cropped photographs and adjust the images hue, levels, saturation, ect. in Photoshop CS5. Choice of Theme: I used 50 images of my newly found home town of Saint Augustine. It is the oldest town in the nation, every building bleeding with history. Research: While taking the photographs i was attracted to the acient city’s unigue and aged architecture.


Project 4: City Cat Challenge: Create a collage with at least six diferent images based off your chosen artist of inspiration. Choice of Theme: I was inspired by David Plunkert. I based by composition off Plunkert’s idea of placeing a desaturated human head on unordinary objects. Research: My ultimate inspiration was David Plunkert’s “The Sky Below”, a collage consisting of a woman’s head on a bird.


Project 5: Pests Out of Control Challenge: To re-organize a famous peice of art into your own composition using Photoshop CS5. Choice of Theme: I wanted to take apart the composition and reorganize the images in such a way to create order and a scene. Research: I was inspired by Salvador Dali’s “The Great Masturbator” paiting because of it’s collage like composition.


Project 6: Nanny’s Favorite Frangerance Challenge: To redesign the packaging of the product “Room Scents” in Illustrator CS5. Choice of Theme: I redisigned the box that the product is carried in so that it will be more concealed. I changed the design on the packaging to have a more ellegant style that also interacts with the poroducts frangerance. Research: I was inspired by the floral and country feel of Cracker Barrel’s country store.
