thesis preview

except i lied and it's not really a thesis preview because this sketchbook image won't be in it. but it IS called "Oops Baby"

i'm excited

landscapes, color

 these are some studies done for my painting and drawing class this semester. our first assignment was a landscape. the studies had to be done in black and white, which i love. later i added color for fun.

we had to choose one to turn into a final piece, so i chose the row buildings.

class of 2015 zine

remember this post about my summer job last year and how i helped coordinate an art project (that giant mural) for my school's incoming freshman students as part of New Student Orientation? well i did it again...but different, of course. i was a Student Orientation Coordinator again this past summer and once again helped coordinate the art project, among other things. this year we did a zine. all of the incoming freshman who attended their orientation sessions had the chance to draw or write something that they were looking forward to in new york or college or life in general. after sneaking into a closed computer lab to scan and compile it and then dealing with lottts of troubleshooting after that, it came out almost exactly as i envisioned it...which never happens.

a lot of the pages were really fantastic. we have an impressive and interesting incoming class. 150 copies of the zine were printed an given out at the New School's annual block party on Sept 1st, but i'm pretty sure there are still some left in the OSDA office next to the student study center if you want to pick one up, or just to check out the pages. it was a very cool and fun job making this.


one of my classes, "beyond the page", is all about combining illustration and design. our first assignment this semester was to design and create our own keycaps, as well as packaging for them. after a lengthy trip through Michael's craft store, a few battles with sculpey and crayola modeling clay, and some label tweaking, i give you: Kappies! For your house key, car key, and...your secret treasure chest key.

cookies + secret wishez

this semester went into full swing really really quickly. 
you'll be hearing from me over the next few months in the form of sketchbook pages, keyboard yelling (i.e. hgdhsgdflihjsgf^%$*~) and possibly, hopefully...a final senior thesis project

hope your labour day weekend was grand!
