I graduated! Here are a few select photos from the day(s).

I’ve been in the Netherlands for the past few weeks as a part of a museum-touring study abroad … I’ll be editing and going through photos from that very soon!

Recent work from anatomical drawing:

I’ve done a bunch of work I’ve been really pleased with this semester, but have been lax about documenting and posting. Here’s some more of it:

“Use gestures to express emotion.”

I have also spent the semester producing Bad Paintings so far in my Beginning Painting class, appropriately. There’s something I really enjoy about the act of painting, but there’s also something I just can’t yet seem to grasp. Bye, GPA.

Here’s a particularly Bad one for an assignment in which we have to copy an impressionist painting. Mine: Monet’s Poppy Field’s in Argeuntil. Not really my favorite sort of thing. I’ve been trying to find some joy in abusing the canvas and my paint and experimenting with brushstrokes.

But it really just looks like color vomit.

Belated blog post! Last Wednesday was the annual Fire Factor at MU, which meant …. we light things on fire. Specifically, a mock-up dorm room. It’s one of the more interesting fire safety demonstrations I’ve seen, and I finally was able to see – and get paid to record – it this year as a part of my job in the Res Life marketing department.

This pretty accurately sums up the room burn. Almost EVERYONE had a smartphone or camera out. You can see more photos I took on MU Res Life’s facebook page.

Internet famous! A photo posted by my boss.

Another exciting thing – I designed the T shirts for the event this year and got to see them distributed. Fingers crossed that I see someone in one at a party.

This kid really wanted one that fit well. Does that mean he’ll wear it out? That’s what I like to hear.

Now, you really should have been there, but if you weren’t, make sure to check out the video. You can see me act a fool around 2:31:

And, finally … the teaser trailer we released before the event.

Should’ve become an actor.

Some work from the beginning of the semester in Anatomical Drawing.

This semester, I’m really interested in not only improving my technical skill but also creating finished pieces and learning to make more purposeful lines.

This last one is several feet tall.

summer recap

leave a comment »

The project that took up the second part of my summer: Welcome Back, a fall preview of sorts to events around Columbia in the coming months. Another student took the lead on the print design, but I conceptualized and created the calendars for both print and the online version (which I also did). The online e-book is available for download in PDF form.

Here’s a link to go download it from the Missourian site. If that ever goes down, download the PDF directly from me here: Welcome_Back.

I also got involved with some video editing and producing through my job in the marketing department at the MU Office of Residential Life. Here’s a preview we released for some future projects …

The school year’s started again, which means painting (I dislike it so far), infographics and anatomical drawing (highlight of my week) should dominate future posts. Let’s see what happens.

Summer’s over. School has started. I am unhappy.

Today we practiced making shapes in Illustrator.

Thank goodness.
