College Project

So the last few months have been very hectic! I have been up to my eyeballs with college work and deadline day is less than 2 weeks away! However, I have managed to complete one project and would love to share with you the process I have went through. Well.. at least a bit of it anyway.
So in this project we had to make a "shopper bag" - larger than A3 - and our starting point was the 2012 Olympics..
I decided to take inspiration from my favourite Olympian, Usain Bolt.


From there I got an idea to use lightning and look at Jamaican artists..


I decided to change my sample by making the black at the top instead of the bottom. I thought it would make more sense because it would make the lightning look like it was going from the sky to the ground. I thought it would look more Usain Bolt-esk if I used the Jamaican flag colours.

 I got this shape from one of the Jamaican artists pieces. Again I used the Jamaican colours but I thought it needed something else so I added Usains' world record time with free-machine stitching.

So they were my final two ideas and from their I chose and made my final shopper bag..

So what do you think guys? Tell me your thoughts! Would you like to see more of my college work?
