I know I’ve been terribly silent lately and I apologize. You see, I was taking time before this semester started to do Absolutely Nothing (a.k.a. read thousands of pages of fiction - mostly George R.R. Martin-penned stuff).
BUT. Now that school has started back up again, I am determined to actually post about the projects I work on, both progress stuff and the (hopefully) thrilling final results. Thus far I’m excited about how my semester’s shaping up - I’m taking six classes (five studios & one art history), so I’ll be chugging away like a stressed but creatively stoked little train on a whole stack of really, really interesting assignments.
For those who are interested in such things, my studio roster this semester includes:
- Illustration I
- Typography II
- Observational Painting & Drawing
- Communication: Time/Motion/Media (focused on time-based media & telling stories with it…extremely cool AND mostly new to me)
- Graphic Design I
The above image is from the barest-boned beginnings of my first project for Graphic Design I, in which I must use the eight basic elements of design (as defined by this prof - the internet differs in what should be on the list) to typographically/graphically illustrate a circus-related phrase (every project will be circus themed. AMAZING). The phrase I’ve picked is, “the daring young man on the flying trapeze,” which just happens to have the exact number of words I require. I do love it when things work out.
Anyways. This is all to say that I plan to actually USE my artblog to, y’know, blog about creative things school is making me do. And hopefully some personal/freelance-y stuff as well, if I ever find the time.
