Professor gave us an assignment where we use our imagination to sketch the different perspectives of the item in the scan? At first I was rather nervous about sketching but I think this might be one of my strengths.

A REALLY BORING CUT ON POPLAR WOOD but I like it. I like simple. I’ve learned this dang bandsaw can be tricky despite bonding with it last semester.

Took this self-portrait for my Photo in Art, Film, and Design course. Man, I totally don’t like taking self-portraits in a serious light.

Professor emphasizes that lettering is important so this was one of our first assignments. I agree and looking at this is sooo satisfying.

One of my hobbies is card making, which is probably one of the reasons why I started off wanting to be a graphic designer. I guess I’ve moved on to ID now but I still haven’t let go of the whole card making ordeal. This is my first time trying the lettering thing and gosh, it’s hard. Which is why I only tend to do it once in a full moon and only for special folks. Next week will be my boyfriend’s birthday. He seems to be the recipient of most of my cards.

New Sketchbook!

Cracked open my new sketchbook today. Hopefully I can get on point with my sketching?

Designing My Website

image

Today I picked up on my website again since I never got around to finishing it during the summer. When I got to class, one of my professors mentioned something about how by the end of the year we should all have our own website. 

I’m no web designer so the most coding I know ends at HTML and CSS. But I’ve always had a desire to learn more so I’ll try. Hopefully I’ll pick up enough to have some sort of presentable website that I can be proud of. Nothing’s better than something you made yourself. (Though I won’t stop myself from hiring an actual web designer in the future when I’m no longer a poor college student.)
