Beginning of the year!

One project down, many more to go. My first assignment in Advertising Illustration was to create an album cover for a band fictionally titled "The Restless." Much of their lyrics were about travel and journeys, so I immediately thought of streets and roads, but didn't want to be quite so literal. Instead, I created implied streets by arranging homes from various lifestyles and locations into an imaginary grid. Each house was painted in gouache separately, and then arranged in photoshop. It was a lot of work, but I am very pleased with the result!

Nothing to show for Intermediate Lithography just yet, which is pretty frustrating considering how much time I've already put into that class. Our first assignment is to essentially do everything we learned in our Intro to Litho class... in one project. AH! So, I have to print a stone, a ball-grain plate, and a photo-litho plate. Think back to that "how-to" post I had last spring. It's a whole lot of work!

My Introduction to Psychology class is amazingly fun and exciting. I always enjoy going there, and I feel like I'm really getting a lot out of it-- how to understand myself better, as well as others. Perfect choice for a general education elective.

That's all for now!

I love all the different kinds of houses you have on here. There's not just a regular victorian or just a plain cookie-cutter house, but an different kind of home.
