The “Hairspray” assignment took approximately two weeks of class time during which Mistler and his Team watched the movie, researched the time period and brainstormed ideas before starting to sketch on paper. They went to work on their designs and as in all class assignments, it was graded.
“At the beginning of the year I had never worked with any computer art programs and now I’ve been selected with such a great honor,” comments Calicchio. “I took everything in, especially the characters and the themes, and used all of my knowledge to put into my design.”
His creative process goes back to that artistic vision and Calicchio explains it simply. “In my head I can see exactly what I want to create for my Digital Publishing projects and for this project I was able to make it happen!”
Mistler is all praise for his student’s talent. “Dom is a talented and hardworking student. His commitment to the arts is apparent by his innovative and unique designs and his contributions and ideas to the digital publishing class are highly valued.”
