We had presentations today. It wasn't nearly as boring as usual :-) I got some good feedback and seeing as i'm computer-less I thought i'd get some stuff printed out whilst at college.
Chris recommended that I have a look at some war propaganda posters. Here's a couple of my favourites...
I thought this would look cool if it was a pig's head instead of Hitler's... It also happens to be the right colour scheme that I was hoping to use. Penguin book's bright orange/white contrast is really punchy.
Don't get into the car alooone!! Hitler might be there! :-O I like this one for the colours... nice orange car interior. Also, the text style might look good for use in the book cover(s).
Some other feedback and inspiration I got from the presentation waas:-
- · Create a series of book covers for all 6 books, rather than just one.
- · Make a short hand-drawn animation to submit to festivals/competitions.
- · Look at War propaganda posters for inspiration.
- · Read “Animal Farm” and look at the political metaphors in there.
Anyway, it's 4pm so i'm going to go home to my DVDs and my knitting :-(
I miss you, laptop!
