Wow it's 2014.
This class has been so much fun to have, it was so much different than other classes I have taken in the past. This class helped me on more than one thing art wise. I can't name them all off the top of my head. But lets just say I can shade a bit better than I did before I came into this class. And it's not just the projects I liked, It's the people I got to talk to and pal around with in the class. The artwork I have seen from my other classmates it just so amazing. It makes me want to do so much in the Artists world. I honestly cannot wait until I take another class like this again in the next few years or so. All together, this class was fun, entertaining, intelligent and colorful. I'm really glad I had this class this year. Can't wait to have it again soon.

In my life I have had to face many obstacles that were difficult, one being depression. If you have ever had it or felt it you know what I'm talking about. That sick feeling all across your body. My depression kinda switched on and off with me which was a big thorn in my side. Most recently it has stayed out of my way and it feels amazing, it's like the fog that always covered me up was gone. But all good things come to and end. During the time of last year were it was at its most worst is were my story comes up (and a bit this year as well). At that time last year I stopped eating, I didn't want to go to school, I slept in (I mean I always sleep in but I just didn't want to get out of bed, I was so miserable). I thought everything in life was just awful and had nothing good to offer me anymore. Until I found a song, no not one but many, so many! Each song gave me back one emotion. Happiness, Sadness (slightly different), Joy, Pride, Hope, so much. One by one my emotions filled and I could feel again, it was wonderful. One song being name 'A Maidens Illsionary Funeral~Necro-Fantasy'. For months I listened to the music until depression struck me again. The music had no effect on me, it just felt old and already used. I struggled for a majority of that time and just had no idea what to do. A little bit later I got a bit interested with my skin and damaging it. I felt no hope. None. Until, I toke out some paper and pencil, and drew something. Then another something, circle after triangle then square after triangle. Anatomy after Iris. Leg after arm. I felt a surge of inspiration. Not a spark, a surge. And I was drawing again, before I became depressed I was a drawing maniac. But lost all motivation to draw. But it all came back. When I started to put the songs into my art it just improved and that something I thought I could never do in my life. It made me so happy it was unbelievable. I mean my art still has a long way to go.. But it will get there.. It may take a while but it's worth it. As long as I have music and art in my life. I'm perfectly fine!

This has to be one of the most unique projects I have ever done it an art class. My first piece of art I don't even remember what it looks like or the color scheme. But I remember I tried to put heart into it. When we had to give up the first part of this project I was a bit upset, I was getting quite attached to it. But when I got my second piece I realized I'd have to take this a different angle then the first one. It was a bit incomplete and barely had any work put into it. I could not do much to this but I could help it just a bit. (It was kinda suffering). I didn't really make it much better then before. Just added more pictures. Then the last part was most difficult, I felt like I lost most of my creative side and felt like I was getting sidetracked with this part of the project. I was not happy with the outcome, I think I could do better if it was a better topic, rather then 'Celebrity'..but I could manage. One life lesson I could take from this project was: 'Don't expect people to always fix the messes you made'. Although, this was not a mess. This was art! I was extremely surprised by the out come of others, they were spectacular! Overall this project was not my best but was really fun T heart. Honestly.
The pop print was something that I have done within the past and a fun time doing so. The item that I choose was a small blue plastic basket, it seemed easy to draw but a pain to carve. So I thought it as a semi-hard challenge. I had originally wanted to go with a different item, but I had a sudden change of mind. This item seemed unique and plain at the same time to me. After I carved and printed the stamp enough to get me a tad bored with it, so my friend and I decided to take the printing a new way. We took the colors of the rainbow and ran them over the stamp and printed it. It was honestly beautiful to me and I loved it a lot. After that I was no longer bored with the stamp, more like, intrigued. I wanted to do more stamps afterward but sadly, we were done with said project.Overall I really enjoyed this project. Very fun.
