The mighty 100

Hello my lovely readers!!

Just as an FYI, this right here right now is my 100th post on this blog! I can’t believe I have achieved this many posts and how dedicated I have been to this blog 🙂

Now, I’m starting school again very soon, Sept 5th to be exact, so more exciting experiences will happen and be shared here. Hopefully you all will keep reading and supporting my blog. Thank you all 🙂

Time for me to kick some blogging butt

Project: Carrie (Part 1)

Hey fellow readers! (or random peeps who want to read something worthwhile… you may or may not find that here… but I’ll leave that up to your brains to process…)

I have structured this blog post as a part 1. You may be wondering why (or not care either way) so here’s my explanation.

Since my first year at OCAD is coming to a close and summer is fast approaching, I was thinking of creating a fun project to complete by the start of second year. Yes, this may seem like a lofty goal/ambition, but I assure you that it will be worth reading in many blog posts.

So, for this post, I’ll explain the project in detail.

The Goal: Create a compelling graphic for the novel Carrie by Stephen King.

Carrie by Stephen King

You may now be wondering why this novel. Why not something more cheerful/happy? Why this horror fiction? Well, this past Tuesday, I saw the movie Evil Dead (probably the grossest/most-horrific/scariest I have seen so far!) and saw a trailer for the remake of Carrie, based on the novel. Since the trailer was so compelling, I now have the urge to read the novel.

And THAT is how I got the idea!

Here’s the trailer for the movie, which is coming out October 2013:

I’ll let you guys know how the novel is and my upcoming ideas for the graphic.

More parts to come 🙂

(Minor) Alice in Wonderland

Hey!

I don’t think I have mentioned this important information in any of my posts so I’m just going to go ahead and reveal my exciting news:

I have signed up to take a minor!!

The minor I will try to complete is Communication Design, which involves all the 2D areas: Graphic Design, Advertising, and Illustration. Since I’m already majoring in Graphic Design, I am going to be focusing on the Advertising and Illustration courses. I am quite exhilarated to start, although my workload will be HORRENDOUS!! Oh well, Art for Art’s Sake right?

Also, since I will be taking Illustration courses, I thought I would briefly practise my skills with this quick illustration of Alice in Wonderland.

More to come soon 🙂
