Tyger Tyger by MedicineDoll Tyger Tyger by MedicineDoll
In class we are working on Concrete Poetry. I impulsively chose the poem "Tyger Tyger" by William Blake as it is one of my favorites.

A good friend of mine once sent me a card with "Boys Stink" on the front and nothing more than this poem on the inside (he didn't even sign it). When I asked him why, he said it reminded him of me. Since then I have found a comfort in it.

However, I am not for certain this is a good piece for the assignment. We are supposed to hand it in in black and white, but for the particular method of laying out the poem I chose, I feel it works better in color.

I suppose I shall re-do it.

Thanks! Concrete Poetry/Prose is still one of my favorite lessons from that digital imagery class. I'm still brainstorming about how to apply it to other things.

Oh, but it's so lovely! And what a nice friend, to send such a comforting card to you!

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. So often I finish stuff and think it's stupid. Probably because I get sick of working on it sometimes. Sometimes it actually is stupid...

But I'm glad this isn't! At least in our opinions.

Spectacular! I imagine this would be far to over powering with white.. Your color choice really helped tone it down.

I kind of just half-assed the assignment.. I have far to many other classes to worry about, and I put far more effort then I needed into the last couple of assignments for this class...

I was going to do "If" by Rudyard Kipling, but decided it was too long. When I conceived of doing "Tyger Tyger" it was in these colors. I don't think the B&W version is as powerful. And then we had to print them off. My margins were not ready for that. Argh.

You should see my propaganda poster, or better yet, don't. It is a monument to everything you can do wrong with photoshop.
