I must admit, I got ridiculously lucky this quarter because I ended up not having any finals! But that does not mean that my classes were a piece of cake. I only had one professor, who happend to teach all my classes and they were probably the hardest classes that I took thus far. I really had trouble keeping up with everything, but I ended up learning a lot.
In my pop-up book class, I learned new techniques and gained a better appreciation for the art of pop-up books. I was walking through Barnes and Noble the other day and came across a couple pop-up books and instead of just flipping quickly through it, I actually studied them and tried to figure out how they put the book together. It's really facinating. This is a cool class to take and can make any portfolio stand out.
Here's what my project looked like! I was inspired by my Christmas trip to the Philippines...
For my Dimensional Illuatration class, we had a lot more freedom to do whatever we wanted and I got to have a lot of fun with my overall project. We had to create three illustrations that are a part of a series. I chose to do the infamous 'monkeys jumping on the bed' story. I chose to mix it up a little and set it up like a cake...without using cake (it's expensive and doesn't last very long) I liked how it turned out. :)
So that's what I did this quarter. I did a lot better than I had expected. Hopefully next quarter will bring the same kind of luck...but I do know that I will have my fair share of stress...I'm just looking forward to graduating! :)
