- In Bootcamp, we get three weeks for each assignment, plus one week downtime before the next one starts. In MATS A, we had one week to complete an assignment and no downtime.
- Lilla will not be critiquing the class submissions as she had in the A course, so there is much less interaction with Lilla herself.
- Bootcamp is less expensive. Less Lilla, less $, I suppose.
At the beginning of the second week, we were given our actual assignment: create a phone cover with a cuckoo clock theme. Because of the vertical nature of the cover, and because I love drawing city buildings, I began focusing on the cuckoo clock as a Brooklyn brownstone. Here are a couple of examples:
Sketching bricks and worn-down facades kept veering me toward decay and the assemblage of broken pieces, however, and I start sketching hardware and darker birds, like the crow...
Ultimately, I realized I was envisioning a collage. Gears, hardware and premonitory blackbirds. A bit of melancholy and a bit of peace. I'll post my final piece shortly.
