And see how fabulous I look while I don’t study?
This is my display for my Renegade project. My theme related to my dietary and health issues, relating it to food and the almost OCD nature that you adopt when you have problems eating food in those first few months of adjustment. It’s always on your mind: can I eat this, what will happen if I do, should I take the risk? It’s how badly you want normal, healthy food, how you can’t have it, and how unsatisfying it is to not have that. It went really well and I’ll post up better images when I get them back from critique!
WIP for an Intermediate Painting project. Just some basic washes :) I like to prove to myself I’m actually making progress >_>
WIP of my newest painting for Renegade. We’ll see what happens! Thought are encouraged :3
For my Renegade Week in Intermediate Painting, I decided to do something I’d never done before. Although not a graphic design major, I’ve always loved using the computer to create art. I think Photoshop, as well as being a tool for making drawings and other things for me, can allow me to be a bit of a trickster. There’s a bit of trickery here in my work, and it will be fascinating to see who understands it. But my second part of it being renegade comes from the fact that it’s a sculpture, and it has a slightly activist feel to it. I usually avoid both, believing that sculpture has never been one of my strong points. I’m also not “angry” or “passionate” about a lot of issues to make art about it. I’ll usually talk to others about it instead of using visual expression. But this time, I wanted to push myself to get out of that thinking habit.
With this work, I wanted that trickery present while bringing up the concept of the relationship between the economy/money, and the landscape/environment. I wanted it to be specific to the place, but also have a more general read to have it extend beyond the boundaries of my immediate area.
Starting over with something new for the second half of the semester. I really need to prioritize my time and schedule everything out, including my fun-time. In all honesty, this has been the first time in over a month or two that I feel like I can have time to sit down and look at things on the computer. *sigh* Got some things in progress, some interesting experiments. Let’s see how they go!
