Next Thursday our class is attending a design/creativity conference called Creative Mix. One thing they offer our class is for us to design some kind of art piece/installation. Apparently we're the only ones that get offered this opportunity and it's a really good way to show off our skills, thoughts, and talents. For the short, short version, our concept is like a flow chart/quiz on creativity with several different answers about who is what. I volunteered for the illustration team and I was picked to illustrated the 'misfit/awkward/struggling with themselves/doesn't belong' portrait. At first I was kind of miffed that I was picked for that one (long history of feelings, school, physical appearance ect., will not go into it here), but in the end I had fun. I came up with someone struggling to put on their sweater, because we've all been there. And of course awkward turtle on the front for those who will know what it means.

This is the final illustration. I had to pull this off very quickly, so for what it is I am happy with it.

Other than that school has been super busy. The conference project is basically outside of everything that is on our curriculum, so everyone has had a pretty stressful week. Thankfully this weekend I can take it a bit easier and work on stuff that isn't due right away.

Did anyone watch that new show Once Upon A Time? I really enjoyed it. I wasn't blown away, but for the subject matter and everything else I thought it was great. It's also nice to see a fresh concept on mainstream tv. Everything is all crime, drama, medical ect. and I'm just sick of it. I'm going to check out the new show 'Grimm' or whatever it is tomorrow.

I've also solidified what I am going for this Halloween. I'm going as an Angry Bird (the red one) because a) it's cheap, b) I have a red shirt, c) it's cheap, d) I have construction paper and string at home to make a beak, e) it's cheap. I went and spent. $0.99 on some black face make-up, so I'll have big black eyebrows on my face this Monday.

Yis. I drewed that. Life drawing and looking at reference images is paying off.

I'm good this weekend if you are. We could be study buddies again or chill or shop or do some lines of coke.

How so? I'm just curious because I've never really gotten this comment about my art before. :)

It looks like something out of anime, but a really high quality one when the character looks human and not like some Pokemon stuff... the lines are very thin and gentle and even though the photo is static it looks like it's actually dynamic and that there is movement.

I love it! What medium did you use? It looks like ink but I can't really tell.

I like Once Upon A Time too! Like you said,"it is different".

LOVE the illustration and agree with the modern Japanese comment, it has a certain flow to it.
