Jet Magazine: Celebrating Black Female Beauty, Jazmyn Shepherd 2019 Xavier University of Louisiana

Jet Magazine: Celebrating Black Female Beauty, Jazmyn Shepherd

XULAneXUS

Once referred to as, “the Negro bible” by famed actor and comedian Redd Foxx[1], Jet has continued to be a pioneer in representing Black Americans as beyond the stereotypes to which they are so often relegated. The magazine has not only provided accurate coverage throughout momentous Black historical movements such as the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s, the Black is Beautiful movement of the late 1960s, and the Natural Hair Movement of the 2000s, but it has also catered to the daily interests of Black Americans, such as fashion and beauty, lifestyle advice, dating advice, politics, health and ...

The Basics Of Horticulture, Maria Uhase 2019 The University of Akron

The Basics Of Horticulture, Maria Uhase

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

The purpose of this series of fine art infographic posters was to combine visual art with information to create an instructional and compelling body of work about horticulture. As part of my Honors Senior Research Project, I designed five large-scale posters with the individual pieces focusing on one topic of gardening. Together they form a foundation for anyone to begin their own successful garden.

The series includes information from how to begin growing plants to how to maintain a healthy garden. Since there are many ways to approach each of these processes, I described methods based on the variety of ...


Journey To My Roots, Ainura Ashirova Barron 2019 Missouri State University

Journey To My Roots, Ainura Ashirova Barron

MSU Graduate Theses

This autobiographical body of work is a visual journey that involved the investigation of my personal identity and roots as well as the exploration of my cultural history through a process that relied on photographs, stories and family traditions, such as crafting. I consider this process and practice to be my passage into a globalized society while simultaneously finding my niche in my newly adopted country of America.


Crafting Comics: My Journey Through The Creative Process, Carrie Hill 2019 Ouachita Baptist University

Crafting Comics: My Journey Through The Creative Process, Carrie Hill

Honors Theses

When I was 12 years old, I drew a short, goofy comic book that followed the adventures of Carrie Hill and her wacky friends. Now as a 22-year-old graphic design student, I've continued to draw comics because they can tell stories with great depth using only a sequence of images. Whenever I read Ben Hatke's Zita the Spacegirl or Kate Beaton's Hark! A Vagrant, I dream of publishing a graphic novel or comic strip. This dream prompted me to create several comics for my thesis, exploring different genres and styles. My original intention was to develop several ...

A Journey Into My Mind, Shen Chen Hsieh 2019 Missouri State University

A Journey Into My Mind, Shen Chen Hsieh

MSU Graduate Theses

During my time as a student in the MFA in Visual Study Program, I have been interested in creating imagery that expresses my inner world that is based on my emotional experience. I believe my identity is influenced by my multi-cultural background, relationships, daily moments and my own introverted personality. I continue to experiment with various mediums and visual styles to communicate these feelings. Drawing, silk-screen printing, mixed media, and three-dimensional sculpture are the main mediums in my artwork. Exploring diverse mediums provides me opportunities to develop my self exploration in my images. I seek to express and understand the ...


Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo 2018 Year-End Report, Anne M. Giangiulio 2018 University of Texas at El Paso

Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo 2018 Year-End Report, Anne M. Giangiulio

Anne M. Giangiulio

I designed this Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo 2018 Year-End Report for the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, a Puebloan Native American tribal entity located in the Ysleta section of El Paso, Texas. With a color palette of terracotta and dark turquoise, the report features artwork created by artists from the Tigua Indian Cultural Center and the Eagle's Path Culural Gift Shop. These artists' medium is usually pottery, however, under my art direction, to better complement the report format, they used watercolor paper while staying true to the tribe's traditional motifs and aesthetics. The spiral-bound report was expertly printed and ...


Daniel Webster Presidential Campaign Broadside, Ernest M. Oleksy 2018 Cleveland State University

Daniel Webster Presidential Campaign Broadside, Ernest M. Oleksy

The Downtown Review

A picture is worth a thousand words. When it comes to learning about history, a strong image can engage students in thinking about the way society operated better than reading a chapter out of a history book. This broadside is a creative design used not to imply that Daniel Webster had a presidential campaign flyer similar to it, but rather as an artistic re-imagining of what campaigning was like in 19th century U.S.A. This broadside serves two purposes. The first is as a creative expression and artistic venture. The second is as a rough approximation to traditional broadsides ...
