Doing the background in vectors was really tedious. If you zoom in and look at all the leaves/flowers/branches, they're all individually drawn. It was so frustrating at first because I had been sitting in class for 3 hours, but after stopping and going throughout the rest of the week, it got easier. Plus, on the right side I just copied and pasted what I had for the left and adjusted it. I think the peach turned out pretty well- not as smooth as Stuart Stein's flower but I still liked.
I don't know how I feel about the fonts... I'll probably come back and look at it later to see what I wanna do about it. I chose Georgia because... obviously- Georgia peaches. And I chose Okkervil because I'm obsessed with a couple of Okkervil River's songs right now- It Ends With A Fall and Okkervil River Song. I tried to get Christine and Paul to help me think of a peach company name haha but they didn't seem appropriate so I went with Perfectly Plump.
These are my other 2 projects that I'm turning in for my project. I hate the text because it seems so cheesy but Stuart wanted them.
This is my pop up lighting project for Jewelry/Metals. They're Illustrator drawings, and I sent them this past Monday to Ponoko.com to be laser cut from a light blue tinted acrylic plate. I'm really excited about how this is gonna turn out, except it cost me $58.57 so I almost passed out hah. I decided to just add those last pieces for the hell of it just to have something made and not waste that whole corner of the material. I hope all the measurements turned out correctly- I went over it a million times so it should be fine.
It's really difficult to explain how it'll all fit together so I'll just put a picture up when it's finished.
I made that Green Lantern symbol for Sam, an anchor for me and Allison, Kelsey's name for her, and that bird for moi.
Pre-Halloween was mad fun. :) I loved my costume, I've been dying to do that since I was in 6th grade. I wish I had some feather headpiece though. And a bigger necklace. And gloves and a cigarette holder stick thing. Hah I still got this weekend.
Some of my fav pictures of the night.
a. The sweetie and me! She helped me last semester with my final Design project. I wish she went to Towson.
b. The bestie (Sam) and me
It's beautiful outside today.
These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York
I wanna wake up in a city
That doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the heap
