so some new things...

Ok. So for Daniel's class we I told him I'd have 70 drawings completed for my marathon project by the end of the semester. That is in May. I don't know if I told you about what the project is exactly. Well. Daniel had this bright idea to do 1000 paintings continuously. So start it, finish it, and move on. He has asked us to do the same, just not that big of a number. We have to have a theme and we need to stick to our "contract" number and all that fun stuff.

So. There we go. My project is called Quotidian. Basically me interpreting my daily life, events, and people around me, into a illustrative unreal situations. Here are a few of my first sketches... more to come.... believe me....

Crazy things in the life of Danielle...

Well. Besides a very draining long night, this weekend has been crazy, nutty, long, psycho, hysterical, sad, and interesting. It was just a long weekend. But anywho...

So for Comm. Arts I'm gonna have to make a poster based on a book. My book? Well If you'd like to know, my book is the Scarlett Letter. We had to brainstorm a lot and come up with 3 themes, 7 pictures each. I thought mine was good. But then the teachers all decided that all our stuff could be "better" so they are having us completely rethink our themes and our pictures. Joy.

Well. Anyways. Here was the first round. Enjoy, I will be posting some Drawing and Painting stuff later...

It's all Daniel Lim's fault....

Haha. Well ok, not really. Daniel Lim is my new Drawing and Painting teacher and he asked us to make a blog. I've already started this one but considering the fact that I never use it, it would be a perfect opportunity to show what I am doing in his class and what I am working on.


So. What am I working on? Well, thanks for asking :). What I am working on (or hopefully going to work on) is a series of drawings interpreting different, situations, feelings, events, and conversations that occur during my daily routine through unreal characters and situations. I am pretty sure that those of you who have seen my art generally know me as a graphic designer. Well let me let you in on a little secret... I can draw too!! I have come up with a new art style for myself. Lets just say that last semester I had an epiphany about my artwork and my art style, so most of the stuff that is going to be uploaded is stuff you have never seen before. In general, most of my work is for myself and my own thoughts, but now you have the pleasure of seeing what inspires me, what goes through my head and what I have to deal with everyday now that I am living in LA.


So yes. That is my project. I'll keep you updated....
