This is my entry for the competition described below. It was created using vector drawing tools in Photoshop, and applying some cartoon-drawing skills I have been learning recently.
“Sagmeister is producing a Happy Film that will look at the wellbeing of people around the world. I met Stefan in Oxford and we talked about how RedBubble artists could participate (I love the potential of global art projects).
The project is simple, RedBubble artists are asked to rate themselves on a scale from 1-10 (1 being seriously depressed, 10 being overjoyed) and then create a self-portrait expressing that state. Any artistic medium/technique is allowed. Stefan and team will be animating the best of these results into a sequence.
The works should use this template, including its 16:9 landscape format. (The line of that template does NOT have to be part of the final piece, this is for composition only.)
Stefan will select works to go into the documentary and it is possible that works will also be exhibited in a New York Gallery.
+ Prizes. We will be giving away two signed copies of Sagmeister’s amazing book Made You Look.
So get the crayons, plasticine, canons, cannons out over the next week and then add your work to the challenge.”
