As mentioned in the previous post, I used the image of the diving lady at the Starlite Motel from downtown Mesa for my tortured image project. I'm guessing she was on my mind because Camaron has a shirt with her diving on it. I bought it for him from a shop raising money to have the giant neon sign restored
(it blew down last fall in a storm).
I've grown up knowing this sign. I'd always see it when I was riding in the car with my mom while she was running errands. It honestly made me sad when I found out it fell down.
I've heard it will be restored and back up this fall though!
Seriously great news!
Anyway, so I used the image of the diving lady for this project. We had to make 50 separate images inspired by this one image. It was a lot of fun brainstorming ways to change-up this iconic image of Mesa.
Here are some of my favs
|No, there is nothing wrong with your vision. I made it like this|
|coke bottle diver|
|be careful what you dive into|
|siamese twin divers|
I could keep going, I mean I have 50 of these. My teacher really liked my project
and said I needed to make one into a t-shirt for him.
If you had to choose one, which would you wear???
p.s. here she is doing what she does best just a few years ago
