Artists

These are a few artists that i have looked at

Lisa Beta

She is a cartoonist that in general has very clean and bright illustrations, realistically i have not had enough practice or have enough time to draw everything in my project with such detail but i really like her style and it will probably prove useful to me to reference to her work.

Calvin Innes

My style that i choose will most resemble the style of Calvin Innes, he is an illustration with a style that most fits art for children. Since that is extremely relevant to my project. He has a variety of styles however i will be focusing on the one in the picture above as it looks the most appealing to me

This link is where i got most of my research on stars:

http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/astronomy/stars/lifecycle/starbirth.shtml

using it i selected the stars i wanted to cover by looking at different types

 

 

 

Stars, Lyrics, Storyboard

The types of stars i will be basing the additional representations of are:

Greedy Star – Black Hole (Exploded Star)

Picture Star – Constellations

Fallen Star – Meteor

This is a draft version of how i want it to look, the original file has sound too which is a friend who i asked to recite the different versions of the song. My next step is finding artists to inspire the art style of this.

Starting Ideas

The assignment for the class is to produce a visual representation of a story, game or nursery rhyme etc. This representation has to have our own twist so it is not exactly like the original.

My idea will use both visual and audio representations and will be based off of twinkle twinkle little star. As well as the original i will be working on variants of the song using other types of stars as the focus.
