Thought I'd post my last few projects from school, now that the mad rush is done.
"Dogspeak" is my final project for Book Media. It's a set of flash cards for dog "language." It's meant as a humorous book, and not to be taken too seriously. I had fun creating the book and illustrations. Played around with bitmapping the drawings, I think it worked out well. All of the cards are screen-printed.
It was interesting researching what each dog gesture "meant", because the meaning isn't fixed and changes depending on context. Although I guess that is true of words in english as well...
I made a faux-fur covered box to contain the cards. Faux-fur is a tricky material to work with. I also felt like I owned a pet after working with it, because the stuff sheds like crazy. I was covered in fake fur bits and had to sweep up my work area afterwards.
