This project went well. I enjoyed working to design an abstract concept. I am more use to illustrating and rarely make abstract work. My ideas were inspired from the two places I have lived: New York and California. Emotionally, California represents being relaxed and laid back, while New York portrays a more lively and up beat lifestyle. Sharpie was nice to use for the sharpness of the lines one can create with it. Line work was important for both parts of the Diptych. To create more contrast I wanted the California side to be high key and the New York side to be low key. It was important for both sides to work together as well as separately.
