This year I attempted Inktober for the first time ever. I do not usually draw so this pushed me to be more creative and try new things. I am in no way a drawer but I wanted to give this a go. I know some of them are not very good. It was a lot harder than I expected. I hope the images are in order; I’m sorry if they are not. I used the following prompt to do Inktober:
Day 1: Ring Day 2: Mindless Day 3: Bait Day 4: Freeze Day 5: Build Day 6: Husky Day 7: Enchanted Day 8: Frail Day 9: Swing Day 10: Pattern Day 11: Snow Day 12: Dragon Day 13: Ash Day 14: Overgrown Day 15: Legend Day 16: Wild Day 17: Ornament Day 18: Misfit Day 19: Sling Day 20: Tread Day 21: Treasure Day 22: Ghost Day 23: Ancient Day 24: Dizzy Day 25: Tasty Day 26: Dark Day 27: Coat Day 28: Ride Day 29: Injured Day 30: Catch Day 31: Ripe
Here are some of the projects I have been working on lately alongside my students, as well as, on my own time. There is also some photography images as well. Some projects are complete, while others are still in progress. Enjoy!
Below are photos from the Louisville Zoo and a couple random pictures as well. There are no photos of the elephants due to the baby being born the day before. There are also no penguins because they were sadly not on exhibit that day.
Adjusting to adult life has been interesting. I am so use to being a student and not that I am not, I miss it. I am currently a Special Education Para-educator at a middle school. With this position, I am helping out in an art class and get to do some of the projects with the kids. Below are some of those projects. The first one we did was draw Spongebob; I am not a drawer at all, especially not 3D. The second was tye dying color diffusion paper. The third, and most interesting, was making a clay bobble head. I chose to design mine to look like Dobby the house elf from Harry Potter. I am excited to see where this new adventure leads.
Random Summer Photography
Here are some random photos I took this summer that caught my eye. Enjoy!
Below will be my final projects from ceramics and photography. I will also include some of my graduation photos because I finally made it! My ceramics finals are my chips and salsa platters for fantasy function, and the donuts sculpture for the no base project. My photography final is series inspired by transition. Since I am graduating and moving it is the goodbye to my childhood and hello to my future.
These images are of most, if not all, of my work from Fall 2018, at various stages. I was a non-major taking ceramics for the first time. I managed to get into the Juried Student Art Show with my wall piece. It was an abstract obsession piece based off of Tim Burton’s “Nightmare Before Christmas”. The piece is titled Holiday Nightmare.
