The Mayor?

i got a new 10-20mm sigma wide angle lens. pretty stoked on it.

i went to my most favorite place today, with a few of my most favorite people. it was seventy degrees! SEVENTY! it's december! that's not right. not one bit. still, days like these make me miss all those summers. what i would give to be laying out there right now on the memorial, star gazing, laughing, eating cookie dough and cold pizza, having meaningful conversation... yeah, i miss the star gazing the most. you don't get that in chicago.

it's nice to have a place to go where you can feel comfortable. that place is my security blanket.

we all got scars, but we don't like to show them.

oh, i'm envious:
of people like this.

tough to say. easy to eat.

i was pretty pleased with the way my promotional ad campaign and tv spot turned out - considering i left the entire thing until the very last hour.

these are just the side bus ads. there is also an indoor bus ad, a 3d object (i did a mousepad with a wrist cushion on account of the fact that cherries are suppose to alleviate arthritis pain), a website homepage and a :30 tv spot with audio and visual storyboard.

this month and a half break couldn't have come at a better time. i don't want to look at another adobe creative suite program until i most certainly have to. this semester completely burnt me out. i often questioned what i was doing as a graphic design student. it's not that i don't love to design, but school tends to turn it into a chore. but that's what breaks are for, right? so, thank you, holiday season, for giving me the opportunity to refresh my creativity and find new inspiration.

i am so happy to be done - happier to believe i made it out with at least a 3.5. phew.

i NEED a darkroom, or i'm going to drive myself mad.

i'm finding all sorts of stuff on my external hard drive...

i never make time to draw these days.

finals week lies ahead

and i am so behind...
but this is what i am working on for my final promotional ad campaign and tv commercial assignment...

it's lacking a lot, but i'm doing what i can and just trying to stay calm and focused. i easily allow myself to get stressed, and it's simply not worth it. anywho, we have to create four outdoor ads, a tv commercial storyboard and a website homepage.

i'm also doing a book of photography for my design class. it's coming down to the wire, and i'm super anxious about finishing it. i'll be doing some final shooting tomorrow afternoon, and hopefully getting it bound sunday.
