My graphic design days taught me that simple shapes take on much more interest when cropped or positioned in unusual ways.1. Start with a white cardstock paper and a 4" circle for the G. man’s face. Place it in the center, somewhat near the top and trace. A simple body is drawn under it, tilted to the side of the paper, with face and buttons, etc.
2. When the drawing was complete, all the lines were traced with a black Sharpie marker.
3. The G. man was colored in with oil pastels. Older students added slight shadows to some of the decorations with a gray pastel.
