Spring Break, and what happened to all the art?

Woah! I can't believe it's already spring break.  Times seems to be accelerating. The first half of the semester whizzed by and I'm sure it will be summer before I know it.

Needless to say I have been insanely busy. Keeping up with schoolwork, internship applications, my work study job, and half marathon training is more than a handful  Unfortunately my blog, as you have probably noticed, has been a little slow with updates. There are a few reasons for this, the first being that I'm not really producing a ton of work. I'm learning so much in my classes but unless you want to see strings of HTML/CSS or InDesign exercises not much has been going on for me as far as producing portfolio pieces. The second reason is that I'm transitioning to my own WEBSITE. Yes! You read that right, my own domain and everything. Hopefully after this semester this blog will be more for progress posts and journal entries and my website will exist as my online portfolio.

Huzzah!

Image Design: Vote for Corgi!





Vote for Corgi!

This silkscreen poster was created for my Image Design studio. I got an overall positive critique in class, but I agree with all the criticism I received. If were to redesign this I would space the lines under the corgi a little lower so it doesn't read as "underline" and also the white space on top seems a little too solid. I would like to have just the silhouette of the cogis' head outlined in white with the chipboard acting as a color.
