A reminder to myself that the process of making is just a beautiful as the product and not to get anxious about how much or how fast  or how well but to focus more on how.

My best friend is leaving for Japan soon for 9 months and it was fairly vital to make her something she could carry around there and think about me… So as not to be enticed away forever. Here’s hoping it works. 
Book sewn, cut, and bound myself.

This piece is a product of a lot of wandering thoughts.It involved some of my thoughts about cycles and traditions of female positions in domestic society,as well as female fairytale characters and their roles in stories (respective to their ages as well).I may very well continue working on it and try a bit of editing in photoshop.

Working on expressions lately. I was actually pretty surprised that they are halfway decent likenesses of me and I didn’t erase at all!

IT’S FINALLY HERE! MY FINAL PROJECT! 
Please click for full view… maybe sometime later I’ll post the images individually and have some closeups.
This is something I’ve put a lot of time and effort into, and I’m pretty proud of! I don’t have a title for it yet. But it is my moth triptych that serves as my final project for my cybergraphics class. I’m really starting to appreciate the digital medium and what you can accomplish with it. I still want to hone my skills with traditional media, but I’m learning to embrace digital as well. 
I did use reference photos for a good portion of it. Two I took myself and the others are online and on my pinterest. If there are any questions let me know.

HEEEEEEEEYE!
So it’s final project time at school and I’m not really working on anything but those projects.
 I thought I’d upload a sneak peak of one particular project I’m working on… should post the full thing in two weeks.

Soooo Laura… You seem to have a thing for altering the respective sizes of animals and humans when you portray them together…
WHAT OF IT?!?!
The colors aren’t great but that’s what you have to live with when you can’t scan the larger images… Someday I will. 

Thank you to my lovely boyfriend for modeling.
