My limitation was to use a catapult to paint. My biggest problem was to make a pattern with the catapult. This lead me to mixing the paint in diffrent colors, and positioning the catapult at diffrent angles.
The word i used for my art journal was dingus. I believe my work shows the meaning of the word very well. The way in which i explain it is by the odd usage of color and the way in which the art does not make sense. I deliberately used brown and blue so it would look silly/stupid. I also used a picture that says ya dingus, so people would know what the work was representing. When you first look at it you think wow that looks really dumb, and that is the reaction i want. The first layer was water and dye that was sprayed on the paper. The second layer was stamps in each corner. The third layer was blue tissue paper that was glued in the middle. The fourth layer was the picture that said ya dingus. The fifth layer was a really bad looking brown that i covered the now tissue covered parts of the work with. Not a single layer really makes sense together you might say i was being a dingus putting them together.
I worked with everyone at my table Connor, Cameron, Alex. I came up with the story for the video. I also did all the stop motion for the first half of the video. Alex and Cameron made the props, and Connor along with Alex did the stop motion for the other half of the video. The video is successful because it is funny. It is a story about how Obama's bird pooped on a man causing him to get dumped. I also think that the roller coaster scene was animated very well. If i was going to change something it would be to use a different background where you cant see the board under it. I would also move the scissors out of the way.
