one of my most prized studio decorations,
a drawing of psy i made from when gangnam style blew up back in september
Now that I’ve finished up with my classwork, I can get back to working on colours for Eik in my spare time. It’s interesting revisiting the project after I haven’t touched it for several months and I look forward to showing (at least some part of) it off at SPX.
I have to move out of my studio space tomorrow. Goodbye, my dear cubicle. It’s been real.
I decided to test out the auto panorama feature of Ps CS6. It’s actually pretty impressive. All I had to do to create the panorama was tell the program which images to stitch together, check some boxes, and wait a few seconds. (Hi-res it to get the full effect)
Tumblr isn’t letting me upload any gifs right now, so linking from imgur is the best I can do. I’ll reupload it correctly when I can.
What’s it like? Do you like living there? If the research triangle was a dog what breed would it be? What is the best place to get coffee in Durham?
The above is proof that I am still trying to learn how to computer. Each image is a link, oho (see link below)!
Do I need to buy hosting just to get a blank non-themed non-customized web page (not like wix, or cargo, etc.) that I can mess around with code on? I want to experiment with css and html but clearly I am still such a noob that it doesn’t warrant paying for anything. But hey for now please enjoy this easter-egg hidden test page on my cargo website. It doesn’t work quite right because the CSS of the theme steamrolls some stuff. Any advice from others on where to test my code as I learn?
Pronoun patches are now here!
These patches are part of my final project for my Gender and the Media class. My goal is to raise awareness about preferred gender pronouns. Whether a trans* person wants to make their pronouns known without having to explicitly state them (to friends and strangers alike), or a person simply wants to give a reminder to be aware of others’ preferred pronouns, I hope these patches can help the situation. At the very least they can be a way to open up a wider discussion about variation in gender identities, expressions, and, of course, pronouns. I encourage people both cis and trans* to take a look. All gender identities are valid and deserve respect and recognition.
The patches are up in my store (linked above) for two dollars. If you would like one, just look through the flickr set of all the available versions and make sure to say which design you like in your order. I suggest wearing them on a jacket or bag. The materials, sizes, and methods I used vary a lot - so if you have any questions or a specific request, just message me! I would be happy to make a few for any other pronouns.
Oh, and, if you know anyone who is trans*, please try and gender them correctly. They may not acknowledge your effort outright, but it really does matter!
The second-to-last spread of notes I will ever take at risd. These are some of my lovely classmates in Gender and the Media presenting their final projects.
Coming soon*, to a piece of fabric near you!
*Not all designs shown here
Got some new reading in the mail today. Think these two are related?
To mix things up, this is what my notes looked like during the final character design class. Includes Guillermo del Toro and a costume resembling a bird hatching out of an egg.
