Iconographic image of the Quaking Aspen for 2D design, with a corresponding typeface.
Two self portraits for Color Theory. The top is along the theme of roleplay, I was trying to make myself elegant and whatnot. The second is for the uniqueness and history of my face (and hair)
I like the second better.

I've also been recently playing around with TVPaint, which has been a fun and informative experience.
I think next semester I will going back and polishing and reanimating most of my IB art film, because it's been sitting around in desperate need of some work, and I really do like the premise for it, but the animation is just so shitty and everything. Plus, with a portfolio out of the way, what else am I gonna do? My social life has gone to shit. I haven't spoken to anyone in days over this holiday weekend...once portfolios are done I'm going to be smack dab in the middle of reading week wondering what the hell to do. I'd like to go to Ottawa or Montreal but I've got no one to come with me and I'm not brave enough to go to a new city alone. So yea, animation seems like a good choice instead.
I've got very little to distract me from the anxiety of hearing back from calarts. I pretty much have a running background noise in my head going "ohpleaseohpleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease" 24/7, and it keeps me from sleeping a whole lot. Fortunately I am very optimistic about this summer as I have gotten an awesome position at a girl scout camp as an arts and crafts specialist and I haven't been this excited for something in a really long time. It's going to be an amazing summer!
