Some design sketches

These are some designs I had to do for my Life Drawing class mid term and All-Japan assignment. I was so not paying attention when my teacher said this was for grade. I did this on they fly and the design in the middle was inspired by a close up of a fly! The design had to be inspired from insects. I chose a dragon fly inspiration for the first design on the left and a butterfly for the last one on the right. I so didn't need the extra work, but I am not willing to sacrafice my grade. I'm pulling a "B" so far and I want to improve to an "A". I love to draw, when I have the time to really sit and illustrate. Doing  30 -40sketches a week for a class tends to become tedious. That is how many sketches I have to do for my Fashion Core class. In fact I have to do 6 illustrations for Friday! Plus flats and a mood board!!! I'm going to need a drink on Friday night.
Below are the first 6 sketches I did for my Fashion Core class. I'm pulling a "C" in this class because I missed two classes. I think my illustration skills and my quick grasp of the assignments save me!

Oprah and the law of attraction!

I went to Chicago,Thursday September 24th for a Friday taping of the Oprah Winfrey Show! It was really exciting to be in the audience and see lady O at work. I'm not sure how much I can say about the show before it airs so I will just say it will air next Friday, October 8. What makes this experience all the more amazing is that I had seen her give away all this good stuff on her favorite things show one too many times and  declared out loud "God, I have to get on her show!" Now, I didn't say I had to be on a favorite things show(which I should have said!), just that I wanted to be on her show and I was, thanks to a friend of a friend! Lesson, here, declare with conviction what it is you want, release your attachment to the outcome and let God, the universe or whatever go to work on your behalf!

*I am so late with this and the show has since aired (two weeks ago!) I could not see myself or my friends in the audience at all!!!! When they did a wide shot of the audience at the end of the show, they put a transparent box with the credits over the area where we were sitting . What a disappointment! Eh, well, that's how it is sometimes. I can still say I was in the audience of the Oprah Show though! LOL!

Eye by Tony Tasset that was on the corner of Van Buren and State Street. All these cycalists suddenly appeared as I was taking the picture. I have no idea what the event was, but it was inteeresting to see all the people on thier funky bikes.

School project for photoshop.

This is an assignment I turned in a couple of weeks ago for my photoshop class. I'm proud of myself  because it turned out better than I expected and I got a really good critique in class as well. Now I can photshop some pictures for my vision board and some t-shirts! Yea!

Eye Candy!

I'm late again with the monthly eye candy, sorry! School is kickin' my a**! So much work. Anyway, this months eye candy is a picture I found trolling around the internet. I think I pulled it from a fashion website I frequent, but I don't remember. I like it because he looks like he is in costume(waking up after a night of debauchery) which is perfect for this Holloween, but he is also partly nekkid! So naughty...I like it! Enjoy!
