Project Description

Create a design based on 2 shapes you see around you!

Challenge yourself to use more irregular shapes—could be the silhouette of a stapler or blob of a shadow. Then, making sure your layers are set to Multiply, combine the shapes and push them as far as you can until their interaction begins to suggest a story. Finally, experiment with screen-printing and digital techniques (adding and subtracting, overprinting, resizing) to achieve a balanced composition.
