|Lilla Rogers MATS Bootcamp|
After so much "cuckoo gorgeousness" ( I actually had to look up that word ) from the February assignment time has been flying and on Monday we have received our next topic and for me this was a total surprise and I would have never ever thought this would be a topic to make some designs and illustrations from.
It is Jell-o molds...
Thinking about it, my mom had some plastic Jell-o molds in the 70s where we used to make "Goetterspeise" ( German word for Jell-O ) with. Preferable the green "Goetterspeise" with the flavour "Waldmeister" ( still my family's favourite flavour ). Researching the topic on the internet, I came across the weirdest combinations ( from North America ) from the 50s and 60s with salads and other main meal ingredients in it. They actually made Jell-o dinners out of it. I can not remember we did this in Germany.
I like all the retro posters about Jell-o, there are a lot of fabulous shapes of Jell-o online with great retro colours. And there are so many different molds. Definitely a topic to dive in.
I started doodling around a bit, just to get a feeling for the shapes. But I have some more ideas I want to bring to paper.
Maybe you will go to your kitchen now and make some Jell-o...enjoy and Happy Thursday !
