MICA’s graphic design M.F.A. exhibit showed a variety of work from posters, plants, music and games. The subject matters ranged from smoking, to amputees and gardening. All of the work in this gallery space could be categorized as a sort of journey. Each piece either had a character go on a journey, showed the process of the artist, or showed how to get involved in … Continue reading MICA Gallery visit
On Thursday afternoon I meet with Inna Alesina to discuss my capstone project. The meeting was rushed but I still got some feedback. Inna gave me feedback on my title (Evolution) and told me to focus on what I want my audience to get out of my brand. Inna said that Evolution reminded her of evolution vs. creation and that’s not what I wanted. She … Continue reading Feedback and Progress
In the beginning of my project I had my mind set on photography and painting. I wanted to photograph one of my friends and paint various super abilities around her such as fire or wings. I didn’t have any rhyme or reason to it, it was just something I wanted to do. Then I got more into the self-love aspect and wondered how people would … Continue reading The Road So Far…

I want my project to bring to mind people’s flaws, then show them … Continue reading Contradictory

There were activities that are designed to shine light on the beautiful aspects of a person such as decorating a mirror, and writing how you’re real and not a Barbie doll on … Continue reading Ideas and Prototyping
Being in college means that I can’t afford to make big meals for everyone like I do at home, SO I found a really easy alternative that could still make some left overs so I don’t have to spend and hour cooking for myself everyday. Step 1: Buy food! I find individually wrapped chicken. Tyson has this really cool “ice glazed” boneless and skinless raw chicken that … Continue reading Meals for one!
My thesis isn’t clear and I’m not sure how I’m going to go with my “packaging super-powers” idea, so back to the drawing board, but I should really say painting board. I was painting with friends and realized that this painting is hiding the woman’s face, what doesn’t she like about herself enough to hide, then I began exploring self-love through painting even more because … Continue reading Re-evaluation
