Circle, Circle, Dot, Dot

Trying to communicate the word and keep an engaging composition was the most difficult part of this assignment. When I started the assignment I wasted a lot of time staring blankly at the words. I really didn't want to waste time so I ended up timing myself like Jamie did on the first day of class. I spent 7 minutes of each word and believe it or not it did make me work more efficiently. I looked up the definition of each word to see if I could take any of the words in a different direction. However, looking up the words also helped in really focusing on the more common definition of each. I would say escape and cooperation were my most successful pieces because of the composition. I didn't think about how the layering of paper on pressure would effect the feel. I laid it under because I wanted it to look like it was being squished, but because of the layer it didn't even appear on the same plane.

  1. Great! Break larger projects down into smaller tasks. Research. Ideation. Iteration. And keep timing yourself! You can actually get a lot done within a limited time.

    But also be willing to take the extra time needed to work on the details and craft. Refinement.
