STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESS-
I did pretty well on my final pattern because I arranged the order of my prints carefully, and the ink is spread evenly on all the prints because there are no red spaces in my pattern. I chose the Chinese wave pattern called “Kinahoshi” because I wanted to make my final project interlock very well and it does interlock. I tried every other cultural influence but it didn’t make it interlock, for example; 🕉the Om symbol, ☮️the Symbol of Peace and ☯️the Chinese Yin Yang symbol because it is not symmetrical. I’m really proud of my lightning bolt or the symbol of The Flash because it is so perfect. It looks like the real symbol of The Flash. I like The Flash because he is all formed by abstract science for example; Spiderman technically is a spider which is, impossible. My weaknesses were, that my personal interest is really big in my pattern but my cultural influence kind of hides near the corner. I could put my cultural influence and personal interest on the border and my creative thinking in the middle and I can transfer my draw on graph paper to my plate carefully so I don’t leave any shapes.
Interlocking and color unity
My interlocking is off by some millimeters because I messed up while carving for example; my wave pattern is sometimes fat, sometimes thin and, I carved through the lightning bolt. The wave pattern all together makes another motif, which is from Native North America but, the Native North American motif is no longer found in the country. The colors I chose are analogous that
means they similar or alike. I chose red paper and yellow (red and yellow are primary colors), yellow-orange (a tertiary color), white ink because they go well together so, this results in a united pattern.
