The social gathering
This was the first project given to us back at uni where we were to combine all the characters we had produced over summer and put them in social situation; as well as adding ourselves as a character. I was concerned it the piece would look like a mess with all the contrasting styles and mediums each character had all jumbled up together , however after some initial sketches and roughs i came up with an idea that was more of a design than a scene of the characters all sitting round a poker table. The artist i looked at to help me with the piece was the German painter Otto Dix, the painting skat players was especially helpful.
