Embarrassingly enough, it took me a pandemic to get back on here. So... hey! A little has changed since the last time I posted on here- so let me get catch you up. I finished my co-op after 6 amazing months (shoutout to my Unite fam) and after constant pushes from my friends and family, I made a little change. Last year, I made the switch to a marketing major, later declaring a minor in graphic design. In my normal fashion, this didn't last too long.
Art has clearly always been my thing and funny enough, I was ignoring that. After some soul searching (just kidding... I was called out by one of my best friends) and making a schedule for my spring term that would involve accounting, business law, international business- you know, all those things that do not scream me at all- I decided that they say third time's the charm for a reason. Sent some emails, had some meetings, and then did a little swap, making graphic design my major and marketing my minor. So if anyone's looking to throw me a "told ya so" feel free to do so.
But let me tell you- best decision ever.
Enough about that though- here is some stuff I've been working on the past few months:
Got home from Philly because of this little pandemic and my first quarantine activity was to paint my wall. Thanks Mom and Dad for always standing on the notion that "it's just paint."
Before the pandemic, I fixed a broken mirror by painting some greenery on it with the quote "be a force of nature" because you know, sometimes a reminder on your mirror helps. I also painted these jeans which was SO much fun. Does anyone know how to take a good picture of a mirror without getting in it? LMK. Same with getting a good picture of painted jeans... but for now hope you like these mirror selfies.
I made some shoes.
I did a whole bunch of stuff in black and white and mixed a bunch of gray paint for class.
And made this lime in illustrator for class, which I'm just super proud of.
So there's all that art from the past few months (with the exception of some bigger pieces i've been working on). There's more where this all came from.
