Georgia’s bird box

My inspiration to my bird was Pandora, Pandora is a comic in a magazine I collect, I didn’t want copy the cartoons in ther comic so I thought of a way to be more original, so what I did was try to create a cartoon girl in the style of Pandora e.g. the style of the body, face, clothes etc.

I did this by trying to base my girl on things that happened in the cartoon e.g. other charters, also using their features, after I had chosen the features I put them all in one character.

The girl on my box is my finished cartoon, with all the features I choose to put on the girl, I though of things such as, the shape of the girl, the face and features on the face, how the clothing will link to her personality.

For the background to my girl I am going to use manga, what i mean by that is to make the girl stand out more I was going to use the effect of lines going out from my girl, I am using this effect because I think it will bring my cartoon girl out more, it will also make her more bold and make her stand out throughout the box.    

Eve’s Pop Art Bird Box

Eve’s Pop Art Bird Box is a simple form based on a traditional nest box shape but made into a unique artwork the use of classic Pop Art imagery.

About Eve’s Bird box

My bird box is inspired by pop art. I chose pop art because I like the look of it and it stands out, its different and not many people have the idea of doing it.

I am just doing a normal, average bird box and then putting pop art on each of the sides. If you picture it in your head it doesn’t stand out a lot, but the way I am placing things and the colours I am using stand out a lot.

 The first thing I did was to make a maquette out of cardboard and taped it together. After that we made a plan for the actual bird box. It had all the measurements on it to work out how big the pieces of wood were. The week after Richard cut all the wood into the correct measurements. I have just screwed it together and I am now working on the detail because I am making that on a separate piece of wood to make it stand out. Next week I am going to cut all the detail out and stick it onto the actual bird box.
