I began with computer keys, as most of the creating that I do happens at the computer.
These were obviously pretty boring, and compostitionally they weren't great either. Back to the drawing board. The stamps seemed promising, but they would need something else in order for the idea to be fully realized.
Enter mannequin head and paint. I couldn't tell you why I chose these items together, but it ended up working very well. I was also able to incorporate the stamps from above. Compostionally, these were strong, as well as being visually interesting.
By eliminating the shape of the mannequin's head I was able to make a much more conceptual piece. Below is the final poster.
