Hey, late getting these up because apparently they didn’t show up when posted from my phone. These focus on design elements “Concentration” and “Isolation”. In-class work always looks sub-par to me, I don’t translate my ideas as well in that environment.

So here are my four finals for the “Subdivision of a Groundsheet” project. Not much to look at, I agree… Anyway, silly Windows won’t let me turn the pictures, so they’re all on their sides. I chose them because I thought they were visually interesting, and I placed lines in a way that I thought tricked the viewer. I would approach each design as symmetrically as I could stand; patterns are comfortable, easy to look at. Then I would strategically place lines and elements that maybe the viewer wouldn’t expect in the midst of the patterns. Funny enough, even though these designs are non-objective, I found myself inspired by random objects: there’s a guitar, a flag, bacon, and a bat underlying in these designs. Can you spot them? I’ll post a revision of one of them tomorrow
These dudes are for my first project in DSGN 100, the “Subdivision of a Groundsheet”. 100 thumbnails for the 4 groundsheets sounded like a LOT at first, but I’ve been slowly getting into the habit of making an ungodly amount of thumbnails anyway; it’s really important, this was just another step in the right direction. I’m a planner by nature, so thumbnails just make sense.
This is me. I’m an animation student at Savannah College of Art and Design. A large part of my life has been dedicated to art, with the rest mainly being spent obsessing over nerdy things, reading, and daydreaming. Surprisingly, I didn’t decide on pursuing art as a career until a few years ago, so I’m finding myself playing quite a bit of catch-up with kids who had a bunch of art lessons growing up. I’m super passionate about what I’m studying, and I have some serious goals I’m working towards. Three things I’m pretty much dedicating the rest of my life to are Animation, Illustration, and Imagination. Going to school for animation, I’m finding myself drawn more and more to traditional mediums, methods, and styles of illustration. For this reason, I’m constantly looking for opportunities to meld the two, hoping for a job in which I can do that; the design process that goes into animation fascinates me. Eventually I’d love to illustrate children’s books for a living. Growing up with 4 younger siblings, I love kids and the imagination they’re capable of - in everything they do. I’d love to be able to capture that imagination in book form; I’ve got super fond memories of staying up way past my bedtime to read all about Where the Wild Things Are and how Bilbo found his magic Ring. Anyway, that about sums me up. In one blog post. I guess I’m not as interesting as I thought?
I don’t usually blog. I’ve been avoiding computers since I saw ‘I, Robot’ back in 2004. This is an art blog, an assignment for DSGN 100. I’ll be posting work, inspirational stuff I find, all the secrets SCAD doesn’t want you to know; basically all school stuff. Interesting tidbit: apparently we can’t post any cat videos.
