Doodleoodleoodleoodle I can’t draw peopleeee
The other side of the orange page. I…tried. Blending is hard, you guys. I also am really not sure about the placement of my magazine-collage-y diamond.
Whatever, I think this is just a page with issues.
In middle school, I had an awesome art teacher who always gave fun and different assignments. One easy assignment that I really loved, and always meant to try again to see if it was as cool as I remembered, was this one.
Basically, you find an image you like from a magazine (or wherever), and mark a grid of squares on the back of it. You then cut out each square and glue them onto another sheet of paper in the exact same order - except each individual square is turned 180 degrees so it is upside-down. The result is something like looking at the original image through a kaleidoscope, the flipped squares turning the image abstract and hard to recognize.
So, here is my attempt after *cough* many years. I think I still think it was a pretty cool idea, and a neat effect. Mostly, I’m glad it was as easy as I remembered! I tend to make art out to be harder than it is for myself too often.
I wonder if you can still tell what the photo was?
