A Tribute to Roy Lichtenstein

This unique window introduces some much needed comic relief as pressures of a new school year begin to build. It was designed to promote student work that was based on a Pop Art theme. The famous artwork of Roy Lichtenstein inspired students to create an entire room set and fashion story based on his iconic sense of style. Loaded with primary colours and nostalgic comic book humour, this window gives the mannequins an opportunity to finally "speak" via speech bubbles. The familiar story line is based on a family situation where Dad (Superman) is attempting to use tough love to give his daughter the push she needs to abandon her diva ways and enroll in a college program to develop the employment skills necessary to lead an independent life and pay for her own phone bills. Attention getters include: colour, nostalgia, props, humour and repetition.

Challenges faced included: This window was challenging because every element of this window had to be carefully positioned to ensure that the story line was easily understood.
