EXERCISE 1B: POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE SPACEEXERCISE 1B: POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE SPACE
Please try to complete as soon as possible, as I'm hoping for you all to have your assignment for this lesson submitted by November 10th, 2011.
Preferably traditional media, but you can do this digitally as well.
1. Choose three images from the list below; one easy, one medium, one difficult. You can either print them out, or look at them on your computer monitor.
2. Spin these images 180 degrees so you are looking at them upside down.
3. Draw a frame on your page the same proportions as the first image. These do not have to be full page drawings; doing something smaller, such as a half or quarter page, is perfectly acceptable. Remember, this is only an excercise to get you warmed up for Assignment 1B.
4. Using a pencil, you are to draw the edge of the NEGATIVE SPACE in the first image. This means ignore the details of the subject, and focus on the spaces crea
a hospital bird with soot in her lungsshe slept through a car crash
that almost killed her,
through whitewhite walls
where her lover dies

with flowers in her hair
and ash in her airway
trying to remember how to start all over
but forgetting to remember how to live.
fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
Keep in Touch!
