|This was for my sketching class. Each one of these pictures is drawn to scale. First in pencil, then inked, then copied, then colored. It's a process. But, it is neat to see how my work is progressively getting better.|
|This group of sketches where the set design that I thought up for a character named "Beth", she was what my teacher said "social anorexic and a cat lady" ha ha ha.|
|Now we are working on mold making. I am planning on doing a Buddha -- I am using latex to make the mold. I am SO excited about this project!|
|This was for Mats & Props too. It was so the teacher could see our level of cutting and understanding of scale. A...duh!|
|This is for my trends class. We went to Melrose and took pictures of street art and had to create a trend out of it. I called my 'Soul paint' and centered my trend around human faces and figures -- and the important of natural beauty.|
|Then we had to take one of those pictures and create a trend from gathering art from outside sources. I called mine "recre-faction" -- a trend of different ways faces are used in art movements.|
|This was my first sketching project of the quarter. We had to draw the set of a comedy. Seeing that I don't really watch comedies that was hard for me, so I picked Will and Grace since I was able to find the most resources.|
So -- school is going really well right now. I am learning a lot. I am also taking a computer rendering class, as well as drafting. Computer is really fun, I am learning a bunch of really neat tricks in Adobe Illustrator -- hopefully I will have some legitimate work to show you all soon. As for drafting we are just getting started -- I have my first project due this Monday. I was able to get a hell'uva deal on a 24 x 32 portable table, so I can do my work at home instead of finding time in my hectic schedule to go to school. I am a little nervous about this class, I already managed to mess up on my lettering -- ugh. I guess there was a mis-communication between how I thought the assignment was supposed to be done. Oooopppps.
Well -- back to the grind. Time to head to work for the next 9 hours of my life.
I can't wait to share my adventures of this weekend. I am hanging out with one of my girlfriends on Sunday and going to the Getty Villa for a school project and well, tomorrow .... who knows.
Sending love from Southern California.
