wednesday i presented the green poster. from the feedback at crit there was more love for the previous version. but with this composition i was struggling with the illustrations. i wanted to portray the happiness and love he spreads with his interaction with his audience, but the way it was depicted really leaned into a juvenile feeling. being a bit frustrated and unhappy with the direction, i decided to go back to a thumbnail sketch to give my self a break and see what would come about. after exploration i think i’ve found my self in a happy place. the new composition reads more contemporary and modern like the young entertainer that jon batiste is. the color exploration helped transition this version into something a bit more successful. the formal elements of alluding to a spot light on the piano, shows that he is the main player within the group. the layers of different shapes show the layers of sounds from the instruments. from this point i am going to work on fine tuning and getting everything in the exact place.
