I once tested out the filters on my camera phone in my backyard and came up with this movie trailer spoof:personified the animals by making them human-like in a relationship drama context.
I still like how a story can be created with anything.
In my Visual Cultures class, I found examples of personification through Edward Gorey's."The Animated Tragedy" (a page is shown below) and "Bug Book."
For my final in that class, I decided to make a comic on personified objects. Because I like the look of poker cards, I chose them as my objects. So I made a drama about cards moving closer and away from each other as a hand of cards.
I aimed to keep the captions casual and like a children's book as I saw Edward Gorey did for even his dark stories. I never mentioned the affair after the title.
For the final, I had printed out black and white. Since then I photoshopped the images to make them more flat and give more dramatic lighting. The piece will go in my school magazine. =) Once again, I had fun. and I hope I do more personified works. What do you think?
If you're interested in Edward Gorey, then I recommend Amphigorey.
