More Collages!

So not too long ago, I posted about the Speak Loud project, and I mentioned that my class had first done a collage as a warm up exercise for the actual project.

Mustaches On the Mind

So for this project, I learned how to use a new medium which I've never used before: charcoal! This piece was done on gray-toned charcoal paper with white and black charcoal pencils.

I have been really swamped with work recently and unfortunately I haven't had much time to do any personal drawing, or post this project. By this time, It's the middle of November, almost time for a completely different holiday, Thanksgiving. I have also... Continue Reading →

Summer 2017

As I suspected, I did not have time to write over the summer, so I've decided to summarize everything I've been working on in the summer and early fall. I had a great time this summer, but it went by so fast! I did a lot of summer homework and volunteering at my local zoo... Continue Reading →

Disneyland, Anyone?

Summer is almost here, and this is my last official project for my 2d design class. Recently, I won an honorable mention at an art show for my zentangle project.  All of my other 2d Design projects were also shown at the show, and they were received really well! I've learned a lot this year... Continue Reading →
