So it is no secret that I hate shading, I feel like I want something to look good and my shading experiments never seem to. Jake gave me some advice during this last foray into the shading world and it helped a little bit. Now its all about practice.

We had to do Gestural drawings in class this week and I had never done them before. I really like them overall but I think two minutes per drawing is more appropriate than one minute, I could just never manage to get them finished. The drawing above was my final drawing for the day and I am really happy with how it came out.

So the iida here at UNCG has a blog that is just getting up and running, but it is where you can find out about the goings on of different things during the month. I am the first year representative, so if you are a first year and have questions or you want anything to get to the board meeting just let me know, or, even better, you can come to the meetings! For now, check it out!

I was looking at some other blogs today and I cam across this guy named Peter Callesen.
His does paper sculptures and his work is really incredible. Check him out!

In this project I had to combine Troy Link and Alexandra Camacho's projects into one more defined project. I had some thumbnails drawn up of different ideas, the above image is my interpretation of a middle mix of the two, an object which heavily favors Troy's project, and an object which heavily favors Alexandra's project, pictures of their projects.

Self Portraits

I always hated drawing self portraits, but this was a bit more fun because we could get a little bit abstract with it. This project had a big aspirations- it was originally a rolodex type of thing where you spun the tube. When the base for the tube collapsed I had to think of a quick fix for the project. I then tried to go to a distorted feel with the project, and the tube was supposed to magnify the effect, it didn't quite work out like I had planned, lol. But, for better or worse, this is what I have. I think I will play with this a little more later.

A New York Memory

So these are some pictures of my final memory container- I actually liked the way this turned out, I just wish I had been able to make the city a little more dense. The buildings are on the underside of the lid and on the bottom of the cube, so I had to work with the negative space quite a bit. I also had to figure out the way to support the lid with the added weight of the buildings on it- thus you have the industrial styled brackets. I wanted to keep the construction lines for some of the buildings on the outside to keep them architectural and industrial as well. Hope you like it!

First Iterations

So these are the first few iterations of my memory container. I knew they were kind of rough, but I didn't want to build the whole thing due to the fact that I knew I was going to rebuild it all anyways and I didn't want to waste several hours. The difficult thing was figuring out how to get the box to support weight while still opening and closing fully.

Zine Zing

So I decided to do something about office spaces, because I had a couple of Interior Design Magazines which concentrated mostly on office spaces and products. I liked doing it, but I think that I would choose something different next time I did this.
-Thanks to Interior Design for the pictures, you can check the rest of them out at
