So today wasn't filled with much work, unfortunately. I feel like my brain is melted from yesterday. I have just been going through my sketch books, doing write ups and making sure everything is up to date:
So today, I'm a slight disappointment. I didn't do any work today. I actually had to go and run errands today and what not, and I took out some time to meet up with old friends. I will however be back to normal, with lots of work to show. So due to being a slight disappointment, I hope that these very famous works of art with a twist will entertain you enough.
I didn't get to post yesterday due to feeling so ill. I didn't manage to get any work done yesterday.
Still feeling crappy today. however I was actually finally able to do some work. Not a great amount but still a fair bit. I finished my Queen of Spades card, I am now currently working on the jack of spades.
I also skipped a little bit a head and have started to design the newest deck of cards design, Cup cakes
As you can see, I'm just on the concept of ideas, I plan to go ahead into illustrator and see what designs work better than others. I also have been toying with the idea of giving the cupcakes a bit of a horror/ monster feeling to them, I am as yet unsure. As I feel that the monsters could again be another design of a deck of cards on their own. I am hoping to be well enough to go to uni tomorrow, being ill is getting boring and I am dying to get my teeth stuck into my work again. That's all from me today, hopefully more to share and see tomorrow.
very short blog today, I haven't managed to do anything today due to waking up at half 7 this morning feeling like death was at my door. Been feeling ill all day :( so I haven't managed to get any work done, just in bed watching Disney movies trying to get better.
I will hopefully be feeling more like myself tomorrow, and be able to get back on track with my work. That's all from me today.
didn't realize the time, so slightly missed a day of blogging.... by about half an hour, whoops. Today I have to admit, I didn't really get up to too much, I got woken up by my flatmate over the Solar eclipse, I managed to get a few photos of the event:
The moon looks a little like a banana.... Just saying. I also went out today and got a padding pool. Yes, a paddling pool.
I'm hoping to continue on with experimenting with my underwater photography, I had meant to do some today. But I think I am starting to get sick :(
So here's hoping I will get to experiment a little more tomorrow. Just not sure if I will be putting this bad boy in my kitchen or the bathroom. Either way, lets hope the flat mates don't walk in and fear for my life.
Hoping to also get a bit more deck of cards done, even get another deck entirely started. As I am beginning to get a little bored of the ones I am currently doing. They are too traditional, so who knows, i might go back and make them all rock starts or something for fun. That's it anyways for me tonight/morning. Will update in roughly 20hrs time
So, today I have to admit I didn't get as much as I wanted to get done today, done. As it was my flat mates birthday, my self and another flatmate procrastinating away fro work. Decided to bake all day.
Vanilla cupcakes, Jaffa cake cup cakes and heart shaped brownies. The heart shaped molds found at the back of the cupboard, thought it was hilarious and tacky, so we thought why not. I also made chocolate chip pancakes with bacon in between. We also decorated the the flat, and even had a little sing song. So yea, Happy Birthday Matt.
I went back and decided to go back into the designs of my logo again, this time I just drew directly into illustrator and played around a bit, I didn't get these finished due to being taken away to bake goodies. Although, I do feel that I am getting closer to my final idea of my logo design. Just a little bit more work.
I am going into uni tomorrow to hopefully get talking to a tutor about my main project and see their thoughts and opinions on the direction I want to continue on with. That's all from me today, Hopefully more to tell tomorrow.
So today, I haven't gotten round to do any university work. I have been using the time I have at home with family and friends. Starting to get myself organized for heading back to Aberdeen early tomorrow morning. Also a little excited for tomorrow, as tomorrow night i have an exhibition at uni. It's all the design students showing bits and pieces from their projects. I have to admit I have seen a few and mine seems pitiful compared to what others have put up. Although this is like a mini exam for me as we go through all this to prepare ourselves for the end of year show. I am really getting excited about that and what I want to put up.
However for the next few week I will be knuckling down to do my dissertation. As well as finally getting back to do some ViewBug competitions . I am hoping to do some night time photography, So feeling rather lucky to be home as I forgot my flask to take with me on these night time adventures.... for wine.... I mean hot chocolate!
So tomorrow I will hopefully have a lot more to say on how the interim show went and how everyone pieces looked. It'll be great to have a wee nosy at what everyone else is doing in their final year.
And as usual seeing as I don't have much to show for today... Here's a picture of a cat, that I hope you find entertaining
