Please view the photos on Flickr from top to bottom, left to right. Read all of the photo descriptions for a complete appreciation of the project. For even more complete understanding, feel free to listen to Lady Gaga's new album as you go, though of course not required.
The ARTPOP ARTPROJECT was a 4 month long opportunity I seized to celebrate my artistic passions that I often have to ignore due to the demanding workload of being a Georgetown University student.
The project is based on Lady Gaga's most recent album ARTPOP. For each song on the album I created a photo representation in which I had a friend or family member let me paint their face, then he or she modeled in a photo shoot. The photos were then photoshopped on pixlr.com and I incorporated pieces of artwork from my portfolio into the photo. The resulting image serves as my interpretation of the song through several artistic media. Included with each song is an essay explaining my creative process behind the art, as well as my goal with the photo representation.
This is a cookbook I created using illustrator for my Introduction to Graphic Design course. I asked my fourteen cousins to each submit a recipe that is special to him or her. I then used illustrator to combine the recipes into a colorful book and gave it to my Grandmother for Christmas.
