About one second ago I realized that it is now March. Where has all the time gone? It's so crazy. Although when it feels like time is going quickly, when I think about it in terms of projects I've completed at school, I realize I haven't been back at it that long.

Illustration Methods isn't going as well as I had hoped it would be. But the next project should be great. The assignment is to pick a demographic and come up with your own line of desk supplies. I'm heading somewhere between adult and young adult. My theme is retro designs with modern colors made with Eco Friendly materials, like FSC certified woods and natural fibers. I'm going to call the line, Sundance Supplies. Should be fun. We're just working on preliminary sketches now.

Other classes have been going well I suppose. My Team Ad and Graph class is working on an assignment to advertise for "Tools". Now my team wasn't my first pick in the beginning but it's really ended up working out for us. We chose to represent Utrecht Art Supplies. I've kind of been labeled the art director of the group which is fine because I'm the only serious Ad Graph Major in the group. I've been in charge of the Logo and Packaging mostly.
Presentation for that project is in a couple weeks. Hopefully it goes weel.

One assignment I've wrapped up recently is my Ad and Graph two page spread assignment. We had to chose and article that did not come with any photos or illustrations and chose a magazine to lay it out in. I chose an article related to the Mayan prediction of 2012 and this is what I came up with.
The illustrations are done in Micron Pen and then later I scanned them in and colored them in Illustrator.

I'd appreciate any and all criticisms of these works.
I'll check in soon again. PROMISE!


  1. Did re-drawing them in Illustrator take a million years? I've wanted to try to do that with a drawing but have yet to do so.

  2. The article came out really well, and I love the colored pencil packaging, I'd definitely buy them! :)
