Week 1: Choosing A Story

Our requirement in this unit is to reconceptualise a story. I have chosen to reconceptualise “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” by Hunter S Thompson. I’m familiar with this subject material, having watched the movie a few times and own the book (a rare Ebay acquisition).

Many ideas about how this could be done are coming forth. So many illustrative possibilities! I’m looking to create an adult booklet and thinking about some sort of subversive, arrhythmic poetry. Potential illustrative techniques include dead ant compositions, smoke art, beetroot juice and charcoal drawing/painting combinations or even ink abstract.

I think I’m going to have fun with this project, mostly because I’m going to be personally paying a lot for the book to be published, so don’t want it to be cr*p. Watch this space for more action in coming weeks…
