Wk 11 Activity: P11 – COMPUTER ILLUSTRATION

Image

So for Project 11, our only prompt was to do something different, and that’s exactly what I did. I got together with my longtime friend Kenji Kiplinger and we created illustrations usingĀ a website that allows you to have multiple people drawing on the same pad ONLINE. Kenji, with the help of his drawing pad was able to make digital illustrations, similar to if you had colored pencils. I on the other hand don’t own a digital drawing pad and was left to use the standard touchpad on my laptop. the result was that I resorted to single clicks, filling in images pixel by pixel, which led me to the inspiration of recreating homages to the 8-bit style of late 80’s video games.

the right side of the board was a collaborative effort by 3 other anonymous users, while Kenji is responsible for the figure holding a cat on the left. The rest was done by me, pixel by pixel, and the result was a collaborative digital art project the likes of which has never before been attempted… by me.
