Funko Pop Yourself!
Funko Inc. is an American company that manufactures licensed pop culture collectibles, best known for its licensed vinyl figurines and bobbleheads. You've seen these around! There are all sorts of pop culture and historical figures created. Did you know that famous artists were made into Funko Pop Characters?
In this option, you can either Funko pop yourself, or an artist who is alive now, creating art. (if you are creating a character based on an artist, be sure to include a photo and name of the artist you are creating along with the Funko pop drawing.)
If you Funko pop yourself, be sure to add accessories of things that describe who you are.
Be sure to post this to your blog!
You may want to copy the character blanks below to get you started:
Here are some student samples:
Below are the artists with their Funko Pop selves:
Students will create a Pen and Ink self portrait. They will choose which pen and ink techniques they will use after practicing in their sketchbook pages. They will then add a background with strategic magazine or newspaper collage.
Printing the image
When you have picked out your image, be sure to save the image to your number. (click This PC if you can't find your number)
Then, when you are ready to print,
1. open up your number
2. click on the photo you want to print.
3. click Share at the top of the window
4. click print (print to the 1401 printer. This is black and white and is better for trying to create black and white images.)
To finish the Contrast Altered book, you will add at least 2 other contrasting characteristics to the book (not including the Notan Square.) Think about what CONTRAST in art really means (strong differences). This could be differences in Size, Shape, Color, Line Quality, Textures, etc.
Below are how some previous students have added CONTRAST to the rest of the pages in their altered book.
Today we will be learning about what we can do for our skeleton backgrounds. We have created two separate options, bubble printmaking and an experimental process where we bled marker onto coffee filters to collage as a background.
You will next cut out your completed shaded skeleton and lay it out on BOTH backgrounds to decide what you like best.
