We were shown a picture where on one side in one corner there was a collection of little drawings all bunched together and after you looked at it for a while, you noticed individual shapes. There were clouds in the opposite corner, and a popular sun burst in the background, drawing the eye from the corner drawings out across the page. It had an earthy colour scheme with (from what I can remember) red, orange, brown and purple, tying all the elements in the image together. I had an attempt using my paint splatters in the corner with other little drawings - i used the three colours yellow blue and green from the paint splatters and used different shades of them.

CD Cover

Sunday, July 4, 2010
using the paintings we made using a pencil, we had to design a cd cover with an original title.

'colourful language' is the title of my cd and i tried a geometric design using square sections of my painting. it isn't a particularly original style but i wanted the painted sections to stand out and i also wanted to see how i could place the type creatively.
