Here are my choices for this week's assignment. Wanna help me pick which one to turn in? I've simply desaturated these so you get a feel for how they'll be in black and white. I hope the finished B&W will have a bit more depth. Here's my two favorites of Andrew:
I'm thinking, like I said, of only coloring his eyes.
And here's a cool building in Plant City:
It cracks me up that it's so dilapidated, but the sign says "A Cheerful Place for Cheerful People." That also makes me think of a childhood story...
When my little brother (Jon) would have a tantrum, my mom would send him to his room and tell him he couldn't come back out until he was cheerful. Sure enough, within minutes of hearing us walk by his bedroom, talking about having some ice cream, he'd come out, sniffling and red in the face and declare, "I'm cheerful now." So, this building's sign sort of makes me think of it as a time-out house. Which makes me laugh. Oh - also, the awning would be turquoise and the lettering would be red.
And here's a little self portrait:
I'm thinking of coloring the apron's bias trim & cherries red.
