I apologize for not posting here for weeks now. I have been so caught up in my school work, my personal life, and random other things. But in terms of school, I’ve been really focusing on my thesis. For those of you who don’t already know what my thesis is on, here is a quick synopsis:
My thesis is a series of videos exploring the experiences of individuals immigrating to Canada and their memories of where they’re from. Each individual shares a personal, unique story of why they chose to come to Canada. Through these shared memories of immigration, a conversation can begin with others on their experiences and a better understanding of someone’s personal journey.
Currently, I have created one video at the end of December and am working on the next two now.
Take a look at my first video and let me know what you think!
I am pleased to say that my digital painting skills are starting to improve. From watching endless amounts of tutorials and figuring out the buttons on my tablet (Finally) I think I’m getting the hang of it 🙂
Check out my peacock that I drew recently:
Also, I submitted my peacock to Threadless, an online site for t-shirt designs, and is now in the process of voting. If I get enough votes, Threadless will fund it so people can purchase it!
It is, I think, the only awards show I actually want to watch throughout the whole year. So, to prepare for the show happening February 22nd, I decided to create my own infographic showing the Top 10 most nominated films in the Oscars this year.
Here is the final:
Maybe I’ll get an Oscar for the most ambitious information design piece 🙂
In my experimental typography class, we were tasked to create an experimental poster using the lyrics from any song of our choosing. For mine, I used the lyrics from Haunted by Beyonce, a song I’ve been constantly listening to for the past few weeks now.
This past Wednesday was December 25 aka Christmas; probably the one day a year that I can ask for anything that I want. In all honesty, I had a difficult time deciding on the gifts I wanted to receive from my family, mainly because I was pretty content with what I already had. Finally, I crafted a short list of items, including a Wacom Inkling.
