Hey fellow readers! (or random peeps who want to read something worthwhile… you may or may not find that here… but I’ll leave that up to your brains to process…)
I have structured this blog post as a part 1. You may be wondering why (or not care either way) so here’s my explanation.
Since my first year at OCAD is coming to a close and summer is fast approaching, I was thinking of creating a fun project to complete by the start of second year. Yes, this may seem like a lofty goal/ambition, but I assure you that it will be worth reading in many blog posts.
So, for this post, I’ll explain the project in detail.
The Goal: Create a compelling graphic for the novel Carrie by Stephen King.
You may now be wondering why this novel. Why not something more cheerful/happy? Why this horror fiction? Well, this past Tuesday, I saw the movie Evil Dead (probably the grossest/most-horrific/scariest I have seen so far!) and saw a trailer for the remake of Carrie, based on the novel. Since the trailer was so compelling, I now have the urge to read the novel.
And THAT is how I got the idea!
Here’s the trailer for the movie, which is coming out October 2013:
I’ll let you guys know how the novel is and my upcoming ideas for the graphic.
More parts to come 🙂
