so i dropped my computer off at the Apple store yesterday and i have been distraught ever since! that computer is literally the most expensive thing i have ever bought or owned! it is worth three times more than my car. so, i felt pretty reluctant as i handed it over to Susan, the lovely Apple store  concierge. sigh. i'll be out of town for most of next week, so i suppose i won't need it anyway, but it's hard to be computerless. also, Logan doesn't have Hot Corners and his screen is too huge. oh but how i love his mighty mouse! you can scroll vertically AND horizontally!!

i'll be out of the 'Bus next week as i'll be in the Windy City and then a wedding in Michigan. be good and have a good break, everyone!

einstein on the beach.

WELLLLLL i am finally done with FINALS! that makes me very happy because i was very stressed about school. i have a whole (well actually, 3/4) month to do fun things such as make crafts, organize, and go to Chi-town!

i made this fun vector last night, which has to do with my resolution to learn Illustrator and InDesign over break. i also want to drink a lot of fine beers and get my christmas shopping/making done in less than $100. think i can do it? i do!

which brings me to my final point: if you need someone to stitch your rags, babysit your kids, or type your thesis paper, call me! i am pretty broke and other than selling a ton of my shit on ebay, i'm willing to trade my many skills for cash. i have a sewing machine and am a very decent seamstress, so if your pants are too big or your coat needs some buttons reattached, call me instead of pitching it! i can also make new projects for you if you'd like. i am great at babysitting and i type 80 wpm. give me a ring and have a safe holiday.

money worries

so i have been a very busy girl doing school work. i stayed till 3:30am at Hopkins the other night to finish my 3D squares project. i debated sleeping on one of the drafting tables, but in the end, i figured it would be more awkward to encounter the first person to come in for class the next morning. i promise to have more exciting work to post soon, but unfortunately my main sources of excitement lately have been final projects and bums walking out on their tabs at work!

happy turkey day!

this is a drawing i did the other day and finally got to scan/illustrator/photoshop it. i've been hanging out with the fam, enjoying a fabulous birthday, getting stuffed on food, and reading the new Twilight leaked book-whatever-thing. i hope everyone had a fantastic and safe holiday! see you on monday!

don't worry about a thing.

so i don't have illustrations as promised... mostly because i don't have a scanner (and neither does Logan) and i haven't made it to the library. maybe tomorrow. but what i DO have are Atmosphere pictures from 10/22 and some crappy video from the Features show! why does my Env2 take video sideways, can anybody tell me?

love love and yes my birthday is TOMORROW! please come celebrate at the Ugly Tuna with me tonight if you have the time.

more BP.


he took off his hat.

i want to say fuck you, lucy...

but what i mean is, i love you, lucy

the end, talking about peace and voting and shit.

aaaaand the FEATURES:

every little thing.

so here is my "finished" Crazy Russian Dude. it actually turned out pretty terrible, but it was super fun to do during class (and a hell of a lot more interesting than videos). today, perhaps something much more interesting will turn up... who knows :)

without further ado, before and after pics of my scribbles:

bounce that.

what a cold, snowy, wet, day! it is officially winter here in Columbus, and while i really enjoy snowy days and sledding and cocoa, i can't say that i'm stoked about trudging around in this shit to work and school.

that being said, i spent the majority of today indoors mastering the Live Trace tool in Illustrator. WOW. i feel like i just read the bible for the first time or something. i have to jet to work (GO BROWNS!) but here is a tiny snippet of a project i am converting to digital:

third (good morning)

here is my completed Klingon project. basically, we created a completely new typeface from an old one, hence the name. i think it turned out pretty well, and i got lots of Illustrator experience. someday soon i will learn it!


there are a few little errors, but i fixed them after printing it. sweet! we saw the Features last night... AWESOME. i might post some pics and video later. we got to meet them and got their autographs as well. good times.

second (where's my milk and honey?)

so, we've been doing some stuff in Illustrator for my studio class. i do NOT know how to use illustrator, for realzies. i can't believe that i managed to put together my entrance exam in that program!

here are some examples of the typeface research pages i've been doing. more pictures soon of some sketchbook drawings (including me as Dr. Girlfriend from Venture Bros) and the fabulous Klingon project! also, don't forget my birthday next week :) i love art supplies, cash, and fancy beer/wine.

well this is the new blog i set up to document my design work, and possibly other college hijinx. i guess i will create some pictures and info SOON.

but in the meantime, make sure to go VOTE today! also, i've been listening to this a lot lately:

i highly suggest it. a coworker and i are going to see them in Cincinnati next weekend and i am excited.

see you soon!
