This is for my current project: The Art of Reinvention. In my project I have chosen to highlight the somewhat ridiculous accusations that people have made about the Disney Princesses and their negative influence on the younger female generation. In my opinion it seems as though people who believe Disney ‘pushes women back into the dark ages’ neglect to realise that the Princesses are so quaint and passive because that is how women were expected to be in the times the Princesses’ stories were set in; they have neither cars nor computers and some live in castles made of stone not houses made of bricks which clearly indicates they do not live in modern times. Above all it appears to be largely over-looked that the stories are not even real, they are merely fantasy. So in order to reinvent the Disney Princesses I decided to reinvent the scene which is always the most iconic of any Disney Princess Story: the ending in which she finally receives her ‘happily ever after’. However, I have taken the criticism of films such as Snow White - one that is often criticised for her naivety- and used it bring the story into 2012, a time in which if a young girl such as Snow White were to wonder off into the woods and come across 7 men, I highly doubt they would take her into their home and take care of her…

After 4 weeks of life drawing, I decided to take some of my quicker sketches that were too rough and too loose to be presentable in any way, and drew very simple life drawings from the originals, mimicking slightly the free drawing style of Matisse. After then photocopying the new drawings and producing a few dry point etchings I struggled to decide what to do next. Fortunately, when I had placed the photocopies aside, they over lapped and created a pattern which I then redrew in Illustrator.

This is a small example of word anatomy that I made on illustrator. The aperture is the somewhat rounded negative space within a character. The apex is the point at the top of the character where two strokes meet. The arc of stem is a curved stroke that is a continuous stroke with a straight stem.

Today during a typography workshop I was taught the difference between leading and kerning. Leading is the space between lines of text and kerning is the space between individual characters. If the kerning is poor then a word will not look right or it will read wrong on the page.
Alexa Meade - Natura Morta. Alexa Meade paints directly onto the body of real people, making them look like a painting that breaks through reality.
that is genius!
