don't stop imaging

The Selection is Made

I have finally decided on the four images that I will use for my o and g project, representing the need for space, the feeling of being in love, a fight, and growing old together. The image above has been modified to grayscale so that the viewer can see it a bit better.

Needing space

Sometimes, g can be a bit overbearing

I find that when g is capitalized, it is a rather antagonizing letter. It stands taller than most other letters, intimidates, angers. The lower-case g, however, is far more passive, curling its tail well below the baseline in submission. Using the submissive g, I can still play on o’s underwhelming presence, using color (well, black and white as per the project’s limitations) to point out g’s intrusion on o’s space.

Love

Letters in Love

In closeness and cuddling, g and o express their love for one another. The cursive font allows for g to reach for o, yet still allow for o to prematurely curl into g. The vast amount of negative space only compliments the closeness of g and o, regardless of their size dragging g’s descender slightly out of the parameters.

Fights

G has a temper

G has the propensity lose it, and o tends to submit. Playing dead on the floor, o waits until G’s tantrum is over. G looms far above, screaming in its scratched-out font, in frustration in whatever o did this time.

Growing old together

g and o's Long Lasting Love

This is by far my favorite of the illustrations. It was first found in the “in love” work book, but I liked it so much that I used the piece in this section. Both o and g are content with each other, curled into one another’s arms. They are small relative to their borders, but that doesn’t seem to both them because they are so lost in one another. I can see them laying here forever, growing old together.
