At first, this was my motif placement plans. I wanted to print my motifs in this kind of placements, but since this placements didnt suit for the assessment requirements, I couldn't print in this lay out. If I was allowed, I'd work on this lay out further more, but since the print theme for this project was toss out lay out, I had to change it. Used Illustrator CS5
Here are the motifs that I used.
I found out that Basso & Brooke go with variety of different styles of motifs.They keep the original form from the original source, or they make it very abstract. Basso & Brooke is 100% digital printed, but in my school we normally do silk screen printing to print on our fabric so I had a limit to follow the Basso & Brooke style, but I did my best to imitate the style. First, I used African people's head. Mostly they are bold, and barely grow their hair, and they have such a nice round head ! So I just African's heads, then I used those bunch of triangular shapes which is one of the African symbols. it means leopard prints in African symbol. Then, I went with a flower and an African tree since in most of Basso & Brooke's collections, they had plants.I researched for African plants, and I ended up with a tree, and a flower which is African daisy.For the African tree, I drew it on the sketchbook then traced and for the flower I directly traced on illustrator cs5 I wanted to add a sense of digital printing, so I edited the flower by changing the style of stroke (in the end, I couldn't use the whole flower since we were not allowed to do colour seperation for this project). As for zebra, I directly traced it on Illustrator CS5.For the rest of the two motifs which are African people, There's a description right above the motifs.I did draw most of the motifs on my sketchbook but All of the motifs were later digitally edited, since that's how Basso & Brooke goes.
These two motifs of people in a row, are the African man, and women.The men are hunting, and the women are dancing.Took out from my research, and I looked at some of the african drawings then I started to draw African people following the style of drawing in my research.it was first hand-drawn then I traced it using Illustrator CS5.
