On one page of your sketchbook, discuss:
1. The political meaning of F-111
2. Your analysis of the specific ways in which the work is effectively designed. (Consider the use of repetition, rhythm, emphasis, transitions, contrast, color, positive and negative space.)
For your sketchbook, do a pop art style drawing that has a social or political message that you care about. Like Rosenquist’s, it may require the viewer to make interpretations and draw conclusions based on the pop imagery you present. Keep track of the time to total 1 hour.
