Officially done with my ‘Dreams - Abstraction’ project! Wooot!
Gotta get this done real soon so I can move on to doing my other projects already.
Even though I complain a lot about how much I hate writing evaluations, critical appraisals and annotation, I do take it very seriously. It may not seem like it, but I make sure I get my point across and also explain my thoughts on a piece of artwork or photograph properly. Always remembering to highlight its strengths, explaining why or why not I like it and mentioning any improvements that could be done to it. I’m one art student who writes.
Extract from one of my critical appraisals:
“They exhibit a combination of the artist’s personal experiences and mixed emotions, more like his own interpretation of life and the human nature. This is one of the reasons why he makes a perfect artist for this project. Personally, I think the pieces he produce greatly resemble dreams, not only his, but also others. It illustrates how complicated and sophisticated a dream can be, how easily something so deep could be interpreted as something rather shallower or perhaps the other way around.”
I’m onto writing my annotations now though. So far, I’ve written about 6,468 words and still counting. Hoping to get this done this afternoon so I can move on to my photography project already. It’s p-p-p-po-portraits!
This baby arrived in the post yesterday. Eeeep! So happy! Can’t wait to try it out real soon. ♥
Painting my own little universe with ink and glue.
Hyperventilating to the nth power! Haha! If you follow me on twitter, you’d know that I just had a glimpse of my negative scans not that long ago. The ones I took with my Recesky/Gakkenflex TLR. They’re so pretty, I’m inlove! So worth my £14.75 and three hours worth of labour. Can’t wait to shoot my next roll, this time coloured. Wooohooo! The multiple exposures I took are so gorgeous, I can’t even. Analog ≡ ♥
Just seeing the pile of work I have makes me not want to do anything.
Developed my Gakkenflex TLR black and white test roll yesterday in the darkroom. And judging from the negs, I think they came out pretty good, I’m actually quite pleased! Ha! But, unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to view them through the enlarger ‘cause I was too busy doing my emulsion prints. =’( So sadly, the answer as to whether in fact they came out good or not will have to wait until tomorrow when I ask our college technicians to scan them in. *crossedfingers
Argh! I’m no where near half of what I’m supposed to do for my final major project. And apparently, we’re already supposed to present our design ideas for our final exhibit this week. Huu =( Thing is, I’ve still got 2 other outstanding projects which I have to complete in 3 weeks or else I won’t graduate. Hell! So now you know why I’m really having a hard time tryna organize which I ought to do first and whatnot. Shoot! That reminds me, I still gotta finish at least two mural designs for this apartment complex so I can win an Ipad 2. And also, complete my student finance application form. Both of which have to be done tonight - ay ay ay! Hectic much? I can already predict my future due to my nonexistent time management skills - a loser who will never succeed in life because she is a train wreck. Haha! “Sleep is for the weak therefore I am weak.” ~lolwhuuut? Hahaha! Still staying positive though, laughing my ass off even though I have tons of stuff to do. ^__^ Woooot! I can do this!
Literally my life right now, art all day all night everyday, Monday to Sunday.
10th page of my final major project.
Only just recently found out that a few of my pieces were included in Stache Magazine’s April Issue. Eeep! I was away for a week with no internet access okay, so pardon me for being a total noob. Ha! Anyhow, please do check it out if you can. The mag’s jam-packed with wonderful art pieces of all aspects - photography traditional art, music, etc. Definitely worth the read!
P.S. Thank you so much to the amazing creators and editors of Stache! You really do push and inspire artists particularly the youth to hone their talents and continue to do what they do best. Keep it up!
Slow progress is slow. My brain cells couldn’t function any quicker. Meh.
