I haven’t got much to say apart from: thank you Proko for giving me a motive to finally practice graphic design. It really was an interesting journey- revisiting these memories - and I am happy to share a glimpse of it. Inspired by old thriller/detective movie posters.
STICKY GIFT (2021) When moving sticky notes guides this young woman who strives for being an artist along with her swan helps her remind herself of who she is by going to the past, solving out mysteries before her birthday, 14th of June. Hello! I'm Oliziette and this is my movie poster for a movie that will tell my story on how I become who I am. It's an adventure, fantasy, action, a little bit comedy here and there, and mystery type of movie. Why it's called Sticky Gift, like what's so special about the Stick Notes? Well, I use it a lot and it has saved me so much in my workplace and myself, not only as an artist, but MAINLY in my personal life. I'm quite forgetful person, and i have to remind myself all the time. Now, there was one time I made like a past > present > future thing. Being an artist has changed my views in life, but even so, I had to remind again to myself that it's okay to fail and to take a breath whenever I know I start to panic over mistakes, failures, and judgements. It helped me so much to get through all of the stories again that I had in the past and get me back to the present to change the future. Also, Sticky Notes has become my friend at some point hehe. The "Gift" one? Well, I'll leave the theories on you guya for the mysteries hehe~ (Actually.. it's kind of obvious though ahaha). So enjoy this poster I made that shares about the journeys on how I got here, along with my two little companions: a swan, and my little Sticky Notes. I had fun while making this, so I hope all of you had fun and are having fun making yours! Goodluck 😊
This poster is about my art journey, specifically when the pandemic hit, and I had just turned 30. Growing up, I was discouraged from pursuing art in any way and was sometimes even told that I'm not talented enough to be an artist. They may be right about my lack of talent. But part of my quarter-life crisis was this realization that even in art, if you put in the effort, you improve. I feel like age 30 was when I really embraced this idea and started to commit work towards it. Getting back to the poster, the zombies in the background are everything in my life that was holding me back from fully connecting with art, such as self-doubt and lack of self-agency. I broke out of the prison that I grew up in, took a swing at the zombies, and gained a couple of art skill points along the way (hence the paint on my spiky baseball bat and clothes). Maybe due to the abruptness of the escape, I don't feel perfectly equipped to navigate the art world yet, like a freshly made game character that's still picking up gears from tutorial quests. So that's why I'm walking around barefoot. Well, that's about it for the summary, haha. Thank you for reading this far, and good luck everyone! :)
