Final Version of my Digital/Analog Project

So here's my final image for Project #3. It's not exactly how I thought it would turn out, and it's gone through many changes. The background is not exactly how I wanted it but it was difficult mixing all of the layers of smoke. Some of the smoke was drawn in pencil as my analog element. I used pictures of cigarette boxes to make the countries. Some are from google, some are pictures I took of boxes with my own camera and some are scans of boxes I found lying around. I had to take a photo of a cigarette as well because nothing from google would have been big enough.


  1. I know what you mean about things not turning out exactly as you expected them to and having to make a lot of changes to come out with your final image. I like that you incorporated so many different elements -- hand drawn illustration, your own photos, found photos, scans, etc. It all comes together very well in your final composition.

    It reminds me of the movie Thank You For Smoking.

  2. Haha, thanks. I've never seen that movie, but I wanted to. Perhaps we'll have another movie night and we can watch that.

  3. "thank you for smoking" definitely came to mind when i saw this. I love the concept behind your piece, too. The cigarette-box countries give the globe a lot of depth.
    awesome work [:

  4. I really love the smoke. It adds more three dimensionality and really enhances the meaning of the piece! Good work!
