Oh Captain, My Captain!
One of my favorite projects I have done while at George Mason was titled "The One That Got Away," where we had to recreate an art piece from one of our previous classes. A year prior to this assignment, I had created an illustration that went along with the poem "Oh Captain, My Captain" by Walt Whitman, but I felt as if the end result was very rushed and not as organized as I had hoped. Therefore, I chose that illustration to be recreated for the assignment, but I also wanted to try something different to make the project feel more like a graphic design piece.
Software used: Clip Studio Paint and Adobe XD
Colored and Shaded Frames
I decided that simply redrawing and redesigning this piece with the same instructions wouldn't teach me much. Instead, because I had taken Web Design the previous semester, I decided to make a series of webpages using Adobe XD to display the poem and the art piece, with each page gradually adding onto the illustration.
