For my first remix, I chose the favorite sports team mash up. I am from Charlotte, North Carolina, home of the NBA team, the Charlotte Hornets, and the NFL team, the Carolina Panthers.. so obviously I had to choose them. Plus! They are my favorite.
I remixed it and my result was to incorporate art by Jackson Pollock with my picture.
Below is a screenshot an array of Jackson Pollock’s pieces, so you can get an idea of what they look like.
Here is my final remixed product:
I created this using a website called sketchpad. It allows you to draw up your own creations. I imported a picture of my two teams. I placed them in a way so it looked as if they were having a stare down. They look like they are in the perfect position to attack each other. Then I used the pen tool on sketchpad and did a bunch of scribbles to mimic Jackson Pollock’s art. I tried to choose colors that would sort of match the mascots I used. It was fun to draw a bunch of random marks and then discover that it actually looks kind of cool!
