Rework Makes the Dream Work
This week, for our weekly assignments, we were asked to rework or remix two past assignments and I chose to rework my Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing assignment and my Four Icons/One Story assignment. Here is the assignment page for Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing and here is the assignment page for Four Icons/One Story.
For the first assignment, I decided to improve upon the original idea of just switching the logo and I decided to change the logo on a car, plus its badge, and wall logos.
Pictured above, we have a beautiful 1987 Rolls Royce Ferrari F40 with an elegant Aston Martin badge. Using Procreate on my iPad, I thought of multiple luxury brands from the 1980s and put them all together to create a car image that any car enthusiast would punch me in the face over such simple heresy. I Chose to do this past assignment because I wanted to see how far I could take my terrible imagination.
For my second assignment, I decided to recreate the assignment with a new movie that I recently watched, thanks to a friend. My friend and I binge-watched the entire Star Wars series over the past week or so, so I thought it was fitting to use the 1980 Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back film for my story.
The snowflake symbolizes the battle on the Planet Hoth, the hiker pas homage to Luke Skywalker carrying Yoda on his back while training to become a Jedi, the teddy bear represents the Wookies, and the lightning bolt is used to indicate the way Darth Vader kills Emperor Palpatine in order to save Luke, his son. Recreating this assignment was fun and perfectly relatable to our class theme.
