above: FAUST posters, new and old. last project of the term save any ongoing visual studies work and the illustrated book, which is to be done for friday.
the first is my final design that i put together today, the second a rough i threw together in 30 minutes last week. it shares the same themes and basic layout, but i spruced it up from a more flat, two-dimensional layout to something a little more lively and dark to proper reflect the atmosphere of the story... or something.
this wasn't my initial intention - to be quite honest, this project hasn't boded well with me for the entire three weeks hence the last minute piece of work. this is mostly because the brief wasn't quite what i hoped (read: hyped) it to be, and that the illustrated book has taken a priority, or more the center spread had. more on that later, i've got to receive the prints of my book, edit them and bind them before i'm happy enough to say i'm finished, that day hopefully to be wednesday. we'll see.
i had a long talk with a tutor today about the direction of the course, a few of my distastes and worries but it's all soothed itself over now and it's thank to that that i've sat down reluctantly to give this project another go and even though it's likely i'm to be chewed out again for not having this, not appealing to this audience, not being smart enough with my images and at the same time (?!) being too complicated... well, fuck 'em, it's done and i'm happy. mostly because it's a skull. and some shards, somewhere. some of the text isn't technically finished, it's missing the dates and info line regarding the composer but i'm going to add them in my hand on the final print out.
nearly the end of term. to come: illustrated book spreads, second diana roll, long train journey home, rest, shorts.
