Walk it out
Last piece for my "fashion" class! This was the last assignment Frank Stockton gave us-- we each got a fortune cookie, and we had to illustrate our fortune.
Can you guess what mine was?
If you guessed, "Spring is here! 2-headed men are out for strolls." you'd be wrong.
My actual fortune was "Smile to others, honesty and friendship bring you fortune."
Get it? The girl's smiling at the man? The man has two heads, named Honesty and Friendship? He's bringing her a flower? Which is like a fortune? eh? eh?
Okay, I know it's kind of a stretch, but if you can give me a more interesting idea, I'm all ears. I just wanted to have fun with my last bit of work for the class (although I'm thinking I should have added some subtle patterning into the suit and dress). Frank was a really good critiquer and it was great to have him there. Thanks Frank! Good advice all around. I'm also very pleased in general with all of my work that has come out of the class as a whole.
Just one more class now-- Thesis. Still so much work to do for it! I always seem to get into these crunch periods. There should be an update early next week, if not before. Tally-ho!
