Slllooowww Dowwwnnnn

    Lately I haven't been feeling the greatest...there's just so many things on my mind that I've been sporting a constant headache. School is most likely the number one cause. Building a portfolio and all 8:30 classes are killers. I don't mind mornings so much...but the bus ride isn't so fun. Oh well I guess I could slow down a little, go to bed earlier and start drinking Red Bull (just kidding)! 
    My sister is coming to visit for the week! I'm thinking that it will help with some stress, knowing I have someone to come home to talk to! We're going shopping tomorrow to spend our Christmas money that has been untouched. Maybe that will relieve some stress...I just only hope I don't get addicted to shopping as a stress reliever... I just got done watching Hoarders on A&E. YIKES.
    Hopefully a new project up soon! Hope all is well for the readers too!

Typography

I finally did a typography! It's very simple, but in most cases simple is good. It's a quote from Dr. Seuss, who's always been one of my writing heroes! 


Also, check out what my classmates are up to!

DESIGNING FRENZY

I've been on a role creating goods for my portfolio! I have been getting up early, and staying up late. I know it's not good for me, but hey, it's working! I'm just waiting for the final crash in the end!


Here's my newest piece:
This is the ULTIMATE recipe card! 
I was going to do a typography, but as my mind evolved it turned into a fancy recipe card. It will eventually end up framed in my kitchen, and I want to do MANY MORE.
The only thing left to do is: actually MAKE the goodies!


My good friend (and enemy) Sean put up some designs of packing he made for a spaghetti company. I think they're pretty awesome and I'd buy them! Check it out!

Create!


Today was typography day in class! SO, I looked around for inspiration! I'm working on one now for my favorite dessert, but I did this one today!


I looked off a tutorial for the basics, then did my own thing! I think it turned out quite well, and truthfully, I am addicted and want to do more!


Watch for my dessert one, and keep and eye out for more designing goodness! 


Here's some of my friends typography of today:

It's Broken.

I really do like coding, when it works. I love how everything fits together, and a bunch of gibberish makes such amazing things! I REALLY don't like how it breaks things.  My website is now broken, because I went to center something. I've tried everything, but I need help! So, I don't want to put up my link just yet for my website because of the simple fact, it's BROKEN.




RIP website.

S to the D STRESSED.

WOW. I didn't think trying to get everything done for yourself and having little jobs on the side would be so stressful! Besides that, there's other homework to do too. But, I've been through worse stress...SO I'm keeping a positive mind and pushing through it!

MY EYES.

My eyes are burning out of my face! I've been infront of a computer for so long and so much that I'm coding and designing in my sleep.
It's all for a good cause though! Promoting yourself is the hardest thing I've had to do so far.
Bring it on!


Here's one of my favorite projects created! Squirt, from Finding Nemo!
He was painted on Photoshop.
