Make your own version of the classic pencil drawing from a photograph of your celebrity crush.
Examine celebrity branding and create a portrait of a celeb using their associated objects and symbols as tools (Think David Bowie’s lightning bolt, Michael Jackson’s glove, lady Gaga’s bow hair style). Think about what your own personal insignia is and make a poster collage.
Consider the celebrity perfume phenomenon. Design your own perfume bottle and recipe using your favorite things as inspiration.
Gather soundbites and form your own personalized celebrity sound remix.
