Minimalist Movie Shot

For the minimalist movie poster assignment, I had to first choose a movie for it. I chose How the Grinch Stole Christmas because it is one of my all time favorite movies.

I thought I could make the face of the Grinch using basic shapes as the cover. I used the same Sketch Pad website as I did for the cereal box assignment, because I had a lot of success with it on that assignment.

I drew the lines of the poster into a rectangle, and then I colored it green. I added geometric shapes, a circle for the head, triangle for the hat, half moon for the eyes, and a rectangle for the mouth. I wanted to make sure the face was able to be depicted, but also was vague enough to be what’s considered “minimal.” I think it came out well. It was challenging to be creative and keep it simple at the same time, but I think that was the point of the whole exercise.
