I think something I did well was thinking about myself and every culture I am a part of to create the cultural part of my motif. I also considered most of my interests and decided which one would say more about me and what I love. I am most proud of the stripes that resemble a basketball because it interlocks and looks very nice on my motif sketch. I problem solved and went through the process of making many rough drafts until my sketch looked like I wanted it to. I made sure that everything I needed was there and I checked with Mr. Reed many times. To improve my personal interest, I would thicken and darken the lines of the basketball stripes so they would stand out more. For my cultural influence, I would enlarge the triangles or fill them in. Also, I would take out negative space because there is way too much.
My interlocking is pretty good. I have a line going through the paper up and sideways. This will make every square come together and will look like there is one big picture or pattern. My interlocking does not really make a new shape, but it brings everything together nicely and creates a big rectangle. The colors I chose were orange and blue. I did this because they complement each other on the color wheel and say a lot about me. For example, the orange represents the color of a basketball, which is my personal interest and the blue represents the star of David, which is my cultural influence. The two colors create color unity because they function together to look bold and balance each other out. The colors I chose were definitely not random and were planned out beforehand. My motif will be polychromatic, which means having multiple colors. The steps I have to complete next are carving and making a final draft.
