Inspired by this:  http://haha.nu/arts/artwork/mona-lisa-by-others/

Combine the (perhaps!) world’s most famous painting with another famous style of art or particular work.  Search for some ideas!

  • Impressionism
  • Matisse/Fauvism
  • Picasso/Cubism
  • Roy Lichtenstein/Pop Art
  • Modigliani
  • Sculpture (Easter Island/Venus/Classical/African/Pre-Columbian/etc!)
  • Ancient Egyptian
  • Van Gogh
  • Georgia O’Keefe
  • Jacob Lawrence
  • Klimt
  • Dali
  • etc!  Tell me one!

Pen Tool Caricature

 

  • Open Photo Booth
  • Take several crazy photos using effects – your entire head must be in the frame
  • Drag the best shot to the desktop and then into Illustrator
  • Use the pen tool to create many built up layers of color, opacity, transparency, etc to create a very realistic – albeit cartoony self portrait
  • photobooth1
