Expressions Repository, Final Four


Everyday object: 15 minute challenge

Look around you. Consider everyday objects within your view. Choose one to draw in Illustrator, and try to do it within 15 minutes.  Name the file “quick everyday” and upload to the Expressions Repository. Examples are pencils, coffee mug, laptop, book, cellphone, the door, water bottle, etc.

e..g. Here's my 12 minute design:

Cartoon Character Creation

Sketch out a cartoon character from your imagination.  It’s best to start on paper.  Then draw it with Illustrator.  Provide a name and caption for your character. Name the file “cartoon” and upload to the Expressions Repository dropbox.

Here's my cartoon, for example:

stress devil


Use some of the skills from Project 2 and draw a sailboat.  We will not cover the entire chapter, and your sailboat does not have to be as elaborate.  Name the file “” and upload to the Expressions Repository dropbox.



Use a Word or PDF document to suggest an assignment for the Expressions Repository. It could be InDesign, Photoshop, or Illustrator.  In your document, give a brief description of what you're talking about and include an example of what you’re talking about.  It doesn’t matter whether you design it, sketch it out on paper, or paste a “googled” sample. We're done for this semester, but I may use your idea for next year.
