We were given our feedback by Tracy last wednesday and because me and my friend had hired out studio time to film for another brief, she gave us a quick summary of the good and not so good parts and told us to email her for any help if we needed.
To be honest, I went in thinking that I would probably just get a pass as I didn’t particularly understand the essay section and hoped that the effort that I put into it as well as my Icon Book design would help me scrape through. So when she handed me my feedback and saw that I had a First, 85/100, I was somewhat flabbergasted.
I left her office feeling proud of myself, not just for acquiring a First, but for handing in a piece of work that I know I had worked hard on. Spencer’s lectures can be quite intense in both length and content and I often find myself reading over his notes time and time again just to make it sink in better, so to find that what I had read and understood from him helped my essay drastically, really boosted my confidence in the analytical aspect of the course.

I uploaded my Icon Book work to ISSUU so that you can actually view it as a booklet instead of in a PDF format. I much prefer this way of viewing as you can read it as I designed it, in a comic book way.
It was a lot of fun designing and drawing this booklet and i’m pretty pleased with the results!

I haven’t been as work focussed and on form over winter vacation (understandable, I hope) but of course I have been plugging my way through all set work and research. I haven’t posted on here for a while so thought I would share a preview of my Icon book work for Spencer. The deadline is 20th January 2014 but plan on submitting it early this coming week.
For my Icon Book work I decided to form it as if my two chosen theorists, Jean Baudrillard and Sigmund Freud – two people who have very different approaches to life – are having a chance conversation due to Freud taking some experimental medicine that takes him to the future to meet Baudrillard. I chose this opening storyline as it incorporates Freud’s background and allows me to create it in a similar way to an actual comic book.
My progress with this work is slow, however i’m really enjoying it and pushing my abilities, for example I HATE drawing people. It is my weakness!

After doing a bit more research, I decided to go forward with Jean Baudrillard as i’ve used him as influence in previous projects so find myself knowing a lot more about him and enjoying his theories.
