Have a great week out of school.
SOFT DRINK SURVEY!

Work continues. We are now in "studio work mode". Everyone should have something to work on. If you ever find yourself without something to do, see me so that I can move you ahead.

For now, I will post a new feature called ENRICHMENT. (It will work at all levels of the class.) It is an extra assignment every day that you can do if you are all caught up. Today's Enrichment exercise is this: Imagine far into the future. Past your own lifetime, but just barely. What four things would you want people to remember you for? Do an illustration or design that communicates those four things. You may choose to express this in any way you choose.


This week: JUNIORS TALKS BEGIN/SENIORS CONTINUED

(Mar. 6-10) Fri.: April/Naveen/Henry and Roxana/Daniel/Braeden/Emmalee/Nick 

(Mar. 20-21) Mon.: Joshua/Gracie and Eli, Tues.: Harley/Neil and Shay/Eduardo

First Year: 

Sketchbook #34 - Using a piece by Xi Zhang as an inspiration, I thought about how to express loneliness. Draw someone who is expressing loneliness with their body stance and posture. See if you can think about it and then use reference if needed. 

Tutorial #22 - This is a full-on drawing course through lynda.com - a great tutorial for use during Spring Break! I am putting this here today so that we can discuss the advantages of working through this during your week away.

FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY PORTFOLIO 
Wed. March 22 - Test shot due for hair, report your brand.

Advanced:
  • Begin work on this influencer: first see the linked video about phenomenal digital and traditional illustrator and designer, Steve Simpson. Can you use his style as an influence on what you like to do? Create a product (poster, illustration, packaging) that has been influenced by his style.
  • 1st year mentors: AM class - Henry, Amanda P., Heather  PM class - Colin, Emmalee, Sydney 
    Practicum: Continue with portfolio prep - the next review will begin right after Spring Break - watch for posted schedule, it will start on Wednesday
