Ottawa Arts Review Publication!

WOW! FINALLY! That only took about... hmm... 6 months? I definitely didn't think it would end up getting printed but I'm quite suprised it did haha. I am so pleased with how it turned out. Definitely worth it! Here are some crappy shots that I took of the book. My scanner is back in Oakville (as I am spending the holidays in Ottawa) and can't scan it. I don't think I'm going to end up making better shots, it's just for your viewing pleasure :)! I was their featured artist so I am on the cover, the back image, and three images in the centre. I had no choice in the cover image so if you're wondering why they put that on there... I have no idea haha. I only gave them that as a filler. I didn't actually think they would use it, especially as the cover! To each is own I suppose :)

Art to Myself

I have spent the entire semester just doing homework and partying, and the other day I realised that I haven't done any art for myself recently. Even though I had an exam today, last night I thought that my art was more important haha. I take my free time for granted. I look at the third/fourth years and how busy they are. A lot of them don't have time for their own art. I need to start being more passionate about where I'm going in life. Here's a start :)!!

Seeing Outloud

So for this semester's final project for interpretive class we have to illustrate, or narrate I should say, a story that we were given. We had the choice between a story of a New York subway experience, or a circus town story. I ended up choosing the New York one because I thought I could do more with it... This is the first panel of four. I just wanted to see what it would look like on a computer haha

Self Portrait November 2008

Some school work that I had to do for painting class. The assignment was to do a self-portrait with chalk pastels and to use the whole page. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out in comparission with the rest of my work for that class...

The Second Year

I'm definitely going to try my best to stay away from deviantart as much as possible. Second year is all about change; Change in media, change in perspective, but mostly change in myself. I really want to grow as an artist and I will try and use this blog to document my progress :)!

This perticular piece is just some random things that I found around the house and thought I would make some art with it haha. Most of it was just ripped out and glued. Even the doodle, just something I did in my binder during class. Oh well, this is my "journal" cover, I thought I would just keep one after the journal presentations for the first year illustration students. It will probably just be a doodle book but that's what I like so I look forward to see what I'll do.
