Pop Art Project By: Nereida Garza

3/10/17 Yesterday, I made my sketches for the project. I made six different sketches that are based on the Romero Britto's art style. My first sketch is an apple and I used different patterns and lines to color it in. My second sketch is many circles that are different shapes, sizes and overlap. My third sketch is a sunset and I used different patterns to fill in the rays off of the sun. My fourth sketch is a turtle with different patterns on its shell and in the background. Finally, for my last two sketches I drew multiple random lines on my paper and then filled in the different section with different patterns.

3/14/17 Last class, I got my sketches checked by Ms. McCall and she gave me feedback on them. Then, I thought about the 3 sketches that I wanted to use for my final project and edited some of my sketches. The sketches that I'm thinking about using are the sunset, the circles, and the two bottom sketches. I also decided not to use the apple or the turtle sketch. I decided not to use these sketches because I would have to draw many apples and turtles on my final paper and that is too complicated for me.

3/20/17 Last class, I picked the 3 sketches that I am going to use for this project. One sketch will be used for the cover and the other two sketches will be used as the book's pages. Then, I drew my sketches on full sheets of paper and began coloring them in using primary and bright colors. The colors that I mostly used were red, orange, yellow, and blue. The sketches that I chose to use for my final project are the circles, the sunset, and the bottom left sketch. I chose these sketches because they are simple and I get to draw many different patterns on them.

3/22/17 Last class, I chose and began the cover of my book. First, I drew my design on a big piece of paper and then began coloring it using bright, primary colors. I also decided to use the sunset for my cover pages. I chose the sunset for my cover pages because it can be cut in different places and still look good. Also, it is easy to make it bigger and it's my favorite sketch.

3/28/17 Last class, I continued working on my cover page for my pop art book. I colored in all of the shapes and designs using many different colors to resemble Romero Britto's pop art style. The colors that I used were red, yellow, green blue, orange, purple, and pink. I chose these colors because they are mostly primary colors and they are bright and joyful which makes the cover more cheerful. After I finished coloring in my cover page, I began thinking of what shape I wanted to cut it into.

3/30/17 Last class I added some finishing touches to my cover. Then, I chose the shape that I wanted to make my cover. The shape that I chose was a square because it is simple and organized. Then, I cut out two pieces of cardboard 8 inches by 8 inches with an x-acto knife. After that I cut my cover page in half and glued each half onto a piece of cardboard. Finally, I folded the edges over the piece of cardboard and glued them down. When I finally finished my cover, I decided to use the back cover for the front cover instead because I liked the back cover better and I believe that It will make my book look better.

4/4/17 Last class, I began drawing my first sketch on a big sheet of paper. The sketch that I decided to draw first was the one with all of the boxes. Each box has a different pattern drawn in it like my cover page. I decided to use many of the same colors as my cover page so that they will go well together. To draw the boxes, first I drew two vertical lines to divide my paper into thirds and then I drew two horizontal moving lines.

4/17/17 Last class, I continued working on the pages of my pop-art book. I decided to use markers to color my first page because I like the way it looks and it makes the coloring process faster. Then, I started drawing some patterns into the boxes. The first pattern that I decided to draw was the horizontal and vertical line pattern because I used that for my cover page and I really liked it. Then I colored in the middle box completely orange.

4/20/17 Last class, I continued drawing patterns and coloring in my book pages. First, I drew some vertical lines in the middle box on the right. I measured each section out so that each section/line would be equal in size. Then I colored the lines in with purple and blue markers and blended them with my finger so that you couldn't see as many lines on them. After that, I began coloring in the top left box with a red colored pencil. I decided to use colored pencil instead of marker because I thought that it would make my project look better if there weren't any lines from where the marker overlapped.

4/24/17 Last class, I continued working on the first side of my poster board. I finished coloring in the top left corner with red colored pencil. Then, I began coloring in the background of the bottom right corner with an orange colored pencil and colored in the circles with red colored pencil. After that, I decided to draw vertical lines in the top middle box. Then, I colored them in, alternating between dark and light blue.

4/26/17 Last class, I finished the first side of the paper for my book pages. First, I colored in the top right box completely with a pink marker. Then, I colored in the bottom left box with a green marker. After that, I drew some horizontal lines in the middle left box. Then, I colored them in, alternating between teal and dark pink. I decided to use marker for all of these parts of the paper to make the coloring process much faster.

4/28/17 Last class, I began sketching ideas for the other side of my paper. I decided to draw a bunch of circles of different sizes all over my paper. Then, I decided what colors I wanted to color them in and made a final sketch. After that, I drew my design on my final sheet of paper and began coloring in some circles completely with a certain colored marker.

5/2/17 Last class, I continued working on the second side of my paper. First, I drew the same vertical and horizontal line pattern that I drew on my cover page and the first side of the book pages. Then, I colored in that half circle in with an orange marker. After that, I drew some tilted lines on the big circle closest to the left of the paper. Then, I colored in those lines alternating between dark and light green marker.

5/4/17 Last class, I finished the second side of my book pages. First, I drew some circles inside the big circle in the middle of the paper. Then, I colored in the background of that circle with a light purple colored pencil and the circles with a dark purple colored pencil. The, I drew some horizontal lines in the half circle on the right and colored them in with dark and light blue colored pencils. Finally, I colored in the whole background of the paper with a yellow marker.

5/8/17 Last class, I cut my big sheet of paper into thirds horizontally. Then, I glued each strip of paper together. After that, I folded the long piece of paper back and forward to make the book pages. Then, I used some string and decided to glue it down on my paper to outline some shapes.

5/10/17 Last class, I continued working on my book pages. First, I cut some lines on the creases of the pages to make some pop outs. I really liked the string outline that I did the last class, so I decided to outline some more things with it. Then, I used some pipe cleaners and hot glued them on my paper to outline some other shapes.

5/12/17 Last class, I added some strips of paper to my pages to add some weaving to it. Then, I cut some slits on one page and sowed them together in a crossing pattern with red string. After that, I folded some strips of paper together to make a little accordion and glued them onto a circle that I cut out. I glued all of that onto one of my book pages to make it pop out. Finally, I glued my pages to my covers.
