final projects are in....

Hey  peeps, finals are over and done for! I now get to be lazy without any regrets. The other day one of the kids in my class told me how she had someone approach her while she was sketching. So you all know, sketching is a big part of our grade. Anyway, this person just raved about how cool it was that she HAD to do something fun for her grade. It's so funny how misleading art can be. No it's not easy. No it's not fun when you're getting graded for it. It's probably the most stressful thing ever, but I sure do love it.

Well, here are some of my finals from this semester. Check 'em.

Intro. to Illustration.

So a most exciting event is taking place in the printmaking room! The Fall 2011 Print Exchange. The concept: Elephant in the Room.

It was such a fun exchange with great prints! This is the last exchange for Matt, Beka, and Kim. So it was all bitter sweet. 

Another great event that took place is the student print sale. I sold and traded a great deal of prints to my pals, but the sale didn't do so great because not many non-artist don't find joy in these kind of things. But hey, I got to take home like 8 prints including a salt and pepper shaker and a bowl i bought at the Student ceramics sale. I just couldn't help I'm a big advocate of supporting student work.

final project...

Can you believe it's the end of the semester already?! I feel like I'm just getting started, but at the same time I'm exhausted and ready for a break. For our last assignment in Digital Illustration, the class brainstormed and came up with several concepts. Some of which were:

1. What could possibly go wrong
2. Arduous journey
3. Nothing gold can stay
4. Watch this!
5.  and others....

I'll be doing a piece on "Arduous Journey." Here's a sketch.

Hopefully you can tell what's going on. Hopefully you can tell that I didn't have enough time to work on this thing. Anyway, this journey is about how difficult it is letting someone go. Well peace out.

I thought I should post this exciting news. So I applied for the Bachelor of Fine Arts program for Illustration this November. I'd like to announce that I made it into the BFA program. I am super excited. I never thought it would happen, but here I am joining the elite group of BFA. Speaking of BFA, BYU-Idaho just had their BFA show this semester. Here's some illustrations and us at a friend's show.

it's midnight...

and I'm ready to catch some Z's. Speaking of sleep, (drum rolls please) I finished my sleep disorder piece. I am quite proud of myself for finishing it a day before it's due. Now, I should have plenty of time to print and mount it and get to class on time on Wednesday. Right, I'll probably forget to print it, and I'll have to print it last minute like I always do, then I'll be late to class like I always am. Anyway, check it out!

So this piece is sort of a self-portrait. Nah, it is a self-portrait. I got the idea for this piece because I'm the kid always falling asleep in class. Thought it'd be a funny narrative for the concept.

sleep sleep sleep....

Here's what I have so far for my sleep disorder piece. Check it.
