1. When I was in the lab, I changed the original picture into the streched out image using photoshop.  Then I copied the picture down onto paper by copying what was in each box on the grid.
2. If you transform a photo into a streched out version, it will look messed up if you look at it straight on.  However, if you look at it from another angle, it will look more like the original version of the photo. One of the hardest things to do is add a shadow.  You have to draw a shadow on the morphed image so it will look normal when you look at it from a different perspective.
3. By doing this, we learned about anamorphis.  It was more about perspective and angles than the actual picture.  It also required that you were good at using photoshop.  We just used colored pencils to add value to the pictures.
1. When I was in the lab, I selected a piece of architecture.  I picked the colliseum because I didn't think other people would pick it. Then, I changed the composition on the photo so that there was a large contrast between the dark and the white.
2. The photos I picked in the collage were all from art books.  The reason I picked them is because I liked the pieces of art.  To fill some space, I used plain text.  The pictures didn't really relate to the picture.
3. I cut out the positive space on my pic.  I did this because I thought it would be easier than having to cut out the negative space. 
4. I had to keep my fingers away from the Xacto knife.  When I cut, I kept the knife parallel to the paper, and didn't dig into the paper with it.  The biggest challenge I faced while cutting was actually cutting all the way through.  It was common for me to cut and then having to go over again to finish it up.
5. I picked yellow and purple for my spray paint.  I did this because they are two colors that go well together.  When I actually spray painted, it was pretty easy.  I had to keep the paint close to the holes in the paper, and it turned out pretty well.
