Make Good Art


For our first project in Computer Applications in the Visual Arts we are required to create an image using software that was not designed for image/art making.I originally was going to do something in powerpoint and then transfer it to a video but there was no solid idea behind it. Then I thought of this.
It’s not very fancy looking with its simple contours and colors (I ended up only using three) and I almost hate to admit the blasted thing took me about 4 hours to make. But man, I really liked this concept so much more.I find Neil Gaiman to be inspirational, particularly his Address to the University of the Arts. So I took the transcript of that speech, threw it into Microsoft Word, and then tweaked and edited the living crap out of it until it turned into the portrait you see above.
