Life in Color

In Environment Class we're starting to make pieces in color!  Super super difficult, but it's nice to no longer be restricted to grayscale!

California Days!

Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been a busy little bee!  I'm currently at Concept Design Academy for the summer and i'm learning so much!  I hope that it will let me get to a level so that I can have more confidence in my work.

I am learning so much from my amazing teachers but even more so from my amazing roommates:  Alli Norman, Mary Jane Whiting, Victor Maury, Jarrad (he has no blog, sadly), and our workbuddy Kyle Katterjohn!  Check them out, they're awesome people.  :)

Here are some of my environment design paintings from the first two weeks.

Week 1:  





Week 2:






And just because this post looks so drab with all black and white, here's a quick color study I did for warm up the other day:


 Happy Saturday!  Be sure to get out and explore the world, because it sure is great!

Where's Waldo

So I disappeared for a while!  Here's what I've been up to:
I traveled 5 hours to southern Illinois where I took some senior photos for some lovely seniors:




After I returned, I worked at the local restaurant where I'm a hostess for as many hours as I could and they offered me the opportunity to design their menu!  I created both a breakfast and dinner menu to them.  I personally like the dinner menu one more because I did it after experimenting with the breakfast one, but it was definitely an interesting learning experience!  I also took the photos for the menu.




and now, I've reached my final stop for the summer, California!  I love it here!  I'll hopefully have some cooler things to share later next week. 

Until next time,
experiment with every art form you can because everything will always teach you a lesson,
