All Shaken Up: Tame vs Wild
Pen, Marker Illustrations in Handmade Accordion-fold Flagbook
"what lies beneath the surface is not always the truth."
- Anonymous saying
Tame vs Wild was the very first accordion-fold flagbook I created back when I was a Communication Design student in 2007.
The main theme for the project is Opposites and I was tasked at the creation of a flagbook from a word and its antonym.
I picked Tame and Wild in relation to how popular icons were perceived by the public. One of the examples I illustrated was the Incredible Hulk. He might go on a rampage, after being transformed into a green beast, however , he is still a human with a heart, which shows a tame side to his character. Or, in the case of the infamous Britney Spears, the sweet little girl-next-door had grown into a whacked-out bald headed uncultured woman over the years, baring it all without her underwear under the close scrutiny of the paparazzi.
