Assignments: On The Cover Of A Teen Mag
gure from politics, education, that you would not expect to be there, on the cover of a teen fan magazine. Bonus points if the cover includes a heart throb of initials JB and a lot of pink color. Re-edit the text as well to blend them into the style of the magazine. Inspired by a tweet by Cathy Finn-Derecki
A lot of the times I create these assignments and I often laugh at how ridiculous I made them. One thing I noticed about myself is that I’m a bit selfish with these assignment, in that, I don’t really care what people who view it think of it or their reactions. If I had fun making it and laughed at it then I think that’s an absolute win for me! This is one of those assignments. I especially think the text I put around Trump and Clinton (who are fangirling over a fictional band) is hilarious. Though, I always have criticisms of my own and in this assignment I have to blame my font…it doesn’t have the ‘ka-pow’ type-of-feel a magazine cover should have, rather it’s bland.
HOW IT WORKS:
1.) I grabbed pictures of Trump, Clinton, And Danny from google images and put them as separate layers on a paint program called medibang (This is not an editing software!)
2.) I then added another layer for the background and the box shapes.
3.) I exported this image as a png and imported to another paint program called Krita (much more useful friendly in terms of editing).
4.) I put the text and drew some doodles here and there
5.) Finally I exported as png and saved to my folder.
