Title: The Real King, 2D Mixed Media/Collage
The assignment we were given was to use words to form the face of a person. Now, since basketball is my passion I chose to honor one of the all time greats in the sport. Michael Jordan. I started with just a light pencil outline and filled it in with light and dark words to form the face. I used black marker to make some of the words very dark like in his eyes. In the background I used acrylic paint to make the bull and the number 23. I used black and red as the colors because those are the colors of the Chicago Bulls and he played for the Bulls for most of his career. I titled my work The Real King because Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player who has ever lived and ever will live.
