Before we even take a look at visual puns we need to ask ourselves this: What is a pun? A pun is defined by Webster as "the humorous use of a word, or of words which are formed or sounded alike but have different meanings, in such a way as to play on two or more of the possible applications; a play on words.“
Your assignment • You are to brainstorm and create a list of 5 possible visual puns. Come up with your own! Not the examples we use in class.. • Choose three of these puns and rough out a visual composition in your sketchbook. • Choose the most effective of the three to create a finished composition of a visual pun. • You will use the large white paper provided.
