With this project we took what we just learned from the previous assignment and expanded on applying those techniques of Collage and photography. Our project was to sit with Peter and pick a cartoon character we would like to collage. I chose Captain America.
This was from the idea of the assignment that the artist Jeff Koons did with Popeye. The other artist we leaned about was Andy Warhol.
Applying those Elements and Principles we used our photos of textures and created our collage, using tonal grey. scale and color. I wanted Captain America to be partly in a camouflaged look. This is not how he is normally appears. I wanted to merge his cliche look with my version of what his identity should be.
By converting him from what he normally appears and timing it to my personal views of being a veteran gave him more meaning to me.
My Name is Steve Gonzalez, coming back to school after a lot of years. I am determined to get this done. Sometimes I wonder if I will make it.
