So for the final project in Gary Taxali's class, we were asked to do a Creative Life Store, inspired by the beautiful losers? ( i think that's right) So basically we were to make a series of pieces about anything, usually something personal or expresses a bit of who you are.
I took a different approach to this, and decided to illustrate Post Secrets. Being inspired by Christian Northeast's illustrations of people's prayers, I thought it would be fun to do the same. I also wanted to work a little more on my concept development. For these pieces I did some pyrography (wood-burning) and I loved it! My linework needs some work, but overall I'm puuurrdyy happy about these pieces : D
The following image quality is pretty crappy- I made quick snap shot before i left for school.
Warning: the following content may offend some.. or make you feel a little nastay. I chose these post secrets in particular because they got my juices flowing, some were funny and some were just plain crazzzay/weird-- which is what i like : P hahaha
"I tasted my own menstrual blood"
"When I'm alone in a public washroom, I like to stand 4 feet away from the urinal"
"My wife says she's seen smaller, but I think she's just being kind.."
