i had a project last semester where i had to draw an animal, then recreate that animal using letter forms, and then again recreate that animal using a collage.
i drew a butterfly, recreated it in a scripty font, and then again in black and white and color photographs that i had taken. i liked the way they turned out so much that when the semester was over i framed them. im sending the collage one to my sister, and keeping the scripty one for myself.
even though i did this for a design in 2D class, i think it would be a fun project for anyone. i love DIY art
