A bit of inspiration for my current animation project!

For our latest brief we had to give basic instructions on how to either boil an egg, tie a shoelace, make a photocopy, make a cup of tea, make a sandwich or change a lightbulb. We had to do so in a way that is hasn't been looked at before and is visually interesting.
I went for how to make a photocopy (obviously). I made observational drawings of people in the university library making photocopies and such, then tried the refine the images further. I thought it was really interesting to use discarded photocopies people have left behind, so I tried to incorporate these into make work, letting the text and shapes found create a narrative, rather than just giving direct instructions.
I then comprised these images into a little zine. I had fun with this one, and the new brief we've been set is very exciting! I'll reveal more in due time.

Sorry it took me a while to post the drawings from the last week of my reportage brief! I think my drawings got stronger later in the book, I grew more confident with the types of lines I was making. Most of these were drawn in a cafe and were a bit more intimate, I was really pleased that I got some people's faces and expressions. I've generally enjoyed this brief and although it is over I will definitely continue to draw from life of the things I see day to day...to think I used to find my references with a google image search!
