Ineffable insouciance

So so proud of the final exhibition for Summer Precollege at MIAD. I was honestly so impressed by the huge amount of professionally presented top notch art there (especially the stuff we did in Illustration heheh)
Bawled my eyes out like a baby when time came to say goodbye to everybody cause I swear I had no idea I’d get so attached to some of these brilliant people. I was given a full tuition scholarship for next year’s summer precollege course so I really hope I’ll be able to return. It’s been a mindblowing experience.

Movie poster assignment is done! Pretty proud of this one.
The background is entirely traditional, acrylic painting (first time I used acrylics!) and watercolor markers. The character and touchups are digital.

May you have the artistic confidence of a twelve year old on deviantart with a sonic oc

I am so lucky to be able to spend the weekend in Chicago, first time I get to see this overwhelming city in the company of amazing people.

Your work is amazing

Thanks so much!

My final piece for this week’s assignment for the Illustration summer course I’m taking at MIAD. Still needs some tweaking for the print but I’m pretty happy with the result. It’s an illustration for an article regarding the decrease of music album sales and the ascension of free streaming websites/apps.

Been attending this open figure drawing studio in the evenings which is awesome though it leaves me kinda drained cause that means spending like 12h a day at school. Sleep has been a luxury but I love the results.

First day of Precollege Illustration at MIAD! Excited to see how this is gonna go on XD

You have written an incredibly interesting diatribe on your problems with The Fault in Our Stars, but that leaves me wondering what you think makes a good book? Or what kind of books do you enjoy?

Well, there’s no short  n’ easy answer to that, as everyone has different tastes. However, I’ll put out a list of adjectives that describe a good book to someone like myself:

  • well-written (i.e. good use of grammar and punctuation, comprehensible sentence structure, language that flows, ect.)
  • well-researched (i.e., if the novel is a period piece, the author should understand the vernacular and culture of the time; if there’s any kind of illness, be it mental or physical, it has to reflect real-life symptoms, ect.)
  • realism (though this ties in with the above point, it also has to do with the sound of the dialogue, the believability of circumstances, ect.)
  • depth: both characters, plot, setting and themes/motifs must be fleshed out, believable and complex
  • pace: the novel should follow, in essence, Freytag’s Pyramid (i.e. no exposition that goes on for thirty chapters, a legitimate climax, ect.)

  • Complexity (ties in with “depth”, but goes further. Essentially requires a higher reading comprehension level than, say, that of an average 12-year-old, which is why most teen fiction doesn’t make it onto my list of favorite books. Possesses intricate themes, motifs and figurative language.)
  • Relevance: do the themes of this novel stand the test of time? Will this book remain relevant thirty years from now? (Themes such as darkness and light, rebellion, faith versus doubt, materialism as downfall, ect.)

I hope this was helpful in some way!

A pretty old character that I’ve never uploaded any drawing of until now. He’s Avery’s brother, a daydreaming, lonely philosophy student. I haven’t been uploading much since I got in the US because I could hardly sleep due to the jetlag - which was a lot worse than I’d expected, like whoa dude - and I’m starting art classes on Monday.

so i did a thing

sad pirate catholic nerd, this is scarily accurate. 

Yesterday I landed in Chicago after my first intercontinental flight, which was delayed because of the massive thunderstorm here. The power came back on just now and I’m pretty pumped about bein in the US for a month. The illustration course I came here for starts next Monday and until then I’ll have time to visit and stuff around ‘ere.

Publicity done right in an anti-rape campaign: double-page spread, pages glued to one another. After the reader forcefully separates them, the image above is revealed with the caption “if you have to use force, it’s rape”.

THIS IS BRILLIANT

I will reblog this every day for the rest of my life fuck

Wow the idea behind this campaign is so genius!

This is important




BRILLIANT.
