Project 300SL Cosmos

In this “Personalize it” ignite week, I decided to partner up with Christopher and build a car model kit plus some paint work. Christopher came up with the idea of doing car model kits and the videos that both he showed me and I watched on my own inspired me to do this project. Cars are our passion and we enjoy collecting car models, watching videos about cars, talking about cars, and even researching about cars. This is why we were so interested and excited about making our own car models. Christopher is the person who inspired me to do this because he is already experienced but I am only doing it for the first time. I think this process will be challenging because there are so much details included and I need to be very precise and focused. I think I will do great because I always do well on what I enjoy doing. The three pictures below are photos I took of the beginning of the whole process which I am currently in now:

It was challenging to assemble some little pieces for both the engine and the structure but I problem solved by sticking the pieces onto my finger, then gluing it to the whole thing. This is my plan for the whole ignite week:

In the continued process of Create and Improve, I made the interior of the car, assembled the doors and the front hooded, painted everything, putted the three layers/parts of the car together, and added a lot of little details to the whole car.

I problem solved by using tweezers for some parts and using other methods and technics for other bigger parts. Doing this Ignite Week made me improve in both problem solving, endurance, patience skills.This is my Final Product:

Supreme Custom Skateboard

I am going to create a Supreme X Louis Vuitton print on my skateboard because this is my favorite collaboration of two brands, the print also looks pretty cool.

The challenges I might face are probably going to be drawing the print and the skateboard perfectly, or else it won’t look as professional. The print is actually very difficult to draw so it is a challenge for me.

My target audience is probably middle school students like me, because a lot of these people like these brands especially Supreme.

I am going to do a rough sketch on a whiteboard first, then do a perfect sketch on a white paper to then trace onto the skateboard. At last, I will create a infographic to explain the process and the main idea of this skateboard.

Inspiration

In this project, I created and painted two skateboard designs and both sides of the skateboard. The designs that I chose were Supreme X Louis Vuitton and one side, and a costumed Louis Vuitton X Off White X AJ1 shoe on the other side of the board. Both designs had different color way than the actual real design on the internet, so it was original. I chose these two designs because they were my interests and I really wanted to change their color way and make them into original art work. In the process of drawing and painting on the board, I used acrylic paint marker, spray paint, and a little bit of whiteboard marker. I was overall happy with the results and how the colors turned out.

The only challenge that I had was the acrylic paint marker was too thick so it was difficult to do the detailed little bits of the design. This is why I had to use the white board marker to draw the details because it was way thinner and easier to use.
