Happy Thanksgiving!!!


I do hope everyone had an excellent and safe Thanksgiving week. I want to thank all my relatives and my family that I got to send the few days with, eating and socializing with. All I hope that people were able to get through the traffic, snow storms, friday shopping and football games and "Now" we may celebrate the christmas commercials.

Sculpture, Metal and 3-D Design Display

          Two more classes left before Thanksgiving break. I'm excited for food but bummed about the homework I have to bring back with me. Hopefully it won't pull me away too much or get messed up but who knows. Anyways, I don't have any finished work or sketches so here are the gallery of student work that exhibited on the second floor. It is pretty impressive on what people were thinking with the limited supply but it came out amazing. All these are a sample from Sculpture course, metal course and the foundation of 3-D Design. Makes me be inspired and hopefully pick up my wire sculpturing again over break or the end of the semester.

Guess the idiom and five second vid

                I feel like I did nothing today. I didn't get anything accomplished or finished because of everything else being thrown at me. Maybe it the big school Thanksgiving party coming up in the next three hours or just Friday has been uninspiring to me. Heck, today I was struggling for four hours just to start on a illustration, which I had to push off for the weekend. So, maybe to cheer myself up maybe begins posting a few of my video I created in my audio& film media course. So this is my five second film, very similar to the vine videos.

        So the illustration that I was doing was illustrating a particular idiom. These are a few of the idioms and you figure out which idiom they are. Check out this link to see a number of the idioms : http://www.idiomsite.com/

Is it really friday?

Again, it is coming too close to end this semester and time is loosing itself. When being attracted to my desk space and walking back and forth to classes, it is weird to get back on track when I get somewhat a break from my homework. All that I need to focus on is illustration, creative writing, English and film footage for one of the lectures. Very soon, I am excited for Thanksgiving or November events are coming up, where I can finally get some great large meals and homemade vegetables.

So this is the finish illustration of the large honey badger in Beverly, painted in watercolor and gouache with the new changes to the first sketch, adding more values and enlarging the image. I could say bough back what I enjoyed, having the energy I wanted to expressed in this scene.

Then I got to finish my open and close sign for typography 1. This project is pretty basic, that you are creating a sign themed off a shop. I chose to do a sewing or yarn store, making me have fun with decorating the typeface and using the theme to my advantage.

Monster Attack on Bevelry

So here is the final sketch from tomorrow. We have a large honey badger climbing over one of the churches, with Robert Downey Jr. taking a selfie with the beast. Also, Honey Nut cheerios because . . uhhh. . . honey theme? Remember this was the cereal I bought so I can put whatever I want in the picture. The most challenging part was probably drawing Robert Downey Jr. Whether to render to perfectly draw someone recognizable isn't easy to do, since you are revealing to the general public. Not to mention, there is a lot of pressure to draw him perfectly :3

Two Hours Reading & Update

          Pretty late for an update, just returned from watching "Joseph, Prince of Dreams" and "Prince of Egypt". It been a little tippy today, not to complicate, but I was walking against ice drilling winds just to shop at the food store.

          Still I am happy for this morning because my dear, lovely friend and I, headed off to the public library to read. Yes, we read for two to three of short stories and graphic novels. Registration and the thought of finals has been dragging on so we just need a break from it, just to distance ourselves from artwork. And this library is prefect, it so large and peaceful that I'm surprised no one hasn't been coming there. I remember last year I went there to check out Neil Gaiman's "American God" which was a great book so I might make it a regular thing, I hope.

           Okay, besides that, here is a quick update. For Film Audio Media, we just finished our abstraction footage, an overall demonstration of what we done with audio and video. What I concentrated with books and page textures, which were actually fun to play with. But now our next project is to make a five second movie. Yeah, five second video. You might have seen them to sum up movies or for comedy uses. Or, mainly popular as vine videos. I'm not sure what to go for but I might try comedy if I don't come up with something solid. For a idea, watch these videos to just a good laugh into your day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saqO_ZqX6uY
 (Warning, R rating language to the viewers)


              Next, For Typography we are designing signage, mainly one for an open and close sign for a particular store. My theme is a sewing and knitting shop that close to my house, since I did like the color pallet and sweet tone to it. Even though their open signs were displayed with waving flags, I can still work as you see in their designs. With the use of thread and yarn strings keep the viewers's eyes focused on the words and hope to not be distracted by the lines.

             Currently, I am putting my quality time in my illustration homework known as the Scavenger hunt. Here's the assignment and I'll let you draw your own conclusion:

"There has been a terrible accident at a nearly nuclear power plant! An exotic animal from a local zoo took in a large dose of radiation and has somehow grown to a gigantic size! The huge animal is shocking people all over the Montserrat area including a living, famous person who happened to be in town! The authorities has yet to be notified, so the giant beast is a surprise to everyone that crossed its path! It's shocking!"

So yeah this illustration is a narration of a large animal interacting with the town's environment, celebrity and an store product. What I have been thing strongly about is the animal is a Honey Badger :3 yes, a honey badger. How pretty work it be, for real life. Then the person witnessing it would be Robert Downey Jr, of course. I would have him scared him but from we all learned from his characteristics, he is much to lay back from that. So an idea was to identify him as Iron Man as he is confronting the creature. Another thought was having him in the foreground, taking a selfie with the creature in the background. I don't know but it was just something he might have done. Then for the object, was going to do a cereal box of Honey Nut cheerios. Why, umm. . .  I recently bought some boxes of cereals and I have to use them in someway. Also they are the only thing in my cabinet that stand out the most. 
Anyways here are my studies sketches that I done so far :)

Happy Halloween :P

Illustration of Mary Shelley's Frankstein's Creature

Studies of OutLast's Chris Walker

Also, I add a new page titled "Comics", There I put a sample of my comic work and graphic novel pages for people to look at. Currently, I put in my finished Illustration homework to check out. I won't have a schedule to when I'll be updating the page, it will be at random points of time until further notice.
