Creating a new graphic artwork every week (CAS 4)

I’ve always been interested in graphic design as a hobby, just creating random artwork on photoshop by playing around with the different tools and techniques and typography. It has always been fascinating to me and I thought I could improve this skill by forcing myself to create a new artwork week using photoshop and illustrator to polish my skills. I started during early August and I made an instagram account to document and post all of my artwork.

L02 – Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills

in the process

This was a very forign format for me, I never really tried to produce artworks on photoshop on time constraints and deadlines and that is why I think I have developed skills of time management as I had to deal with deadlines. I also made it challenging for myself as I forced myself to learn some new technique with every poster/artwork I made.

L03 – Demonstrate how to initiate and plan a CAS experience

As this was a time based experience I had to make time for my days and had to remind myself to work on these artworks and so I made a schedule for myself to complete one artwork week and not miss the deadline. Sometimes I was really close to missing the weekly deadlines but I rushed through some and completed it 

L04 – Show commitment to and perseverance in CAS experiences

Reaching all the deadlines and getting artwork done every week was a hassle for me, I had to commit and force myself to get things done while working at different CAS experiences at the same time. 

To conclude I’d say that I developed my balancing skill as a learner attribute as I had to work every week while also completing my other assignments and while having time for myself and managing these things together. Also knowledgeable as I researched about different techniques of photoshop and illustrator. This CAS experience was the biggest success looking at the artworks created which will also help me with my resume and more. – all the posters that I made are uploaded on my instagram page
