Architecture Dream Home Project

In my semester course, I designed and built my 'dream home'. I don't have the floor plans but I do have a picture of the painting and the house- made of balsa wood and painted with some different stains.

Here's the progress:

This project was very time consuming but real fun.

I'm off for break for the next two weeks. I'll spend today finishing up some art that I've been working on the past weeks and post them tomorrow. These next two weeks will be very fun and art-filled.

Thanks for reading and Merry Christmas!

Going to keep working on figure and developing more contrast. At the very end, there's a pic of a house'm working on now.

I've also animated a lot this weekend, still working/polishing though. I'll post the completed exercises as I continue to work on them.

Thanks for reading, have a good week!

National Portfolio Day WEEKEND 2013!

Hello all!

This past weekend I attended National Portfolio in Milwaukee at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and in Chicago at School of Art Institute of Chicago. These past two days have been a blast! I showed my portfolio and demo reel to 8 schools in Milwaukee on October 19th and 7 schools in Chicago on October 20th. 15 critiques in 2 days!

Milwaukee- October 19
Ringling College of Art and Design
Rhode Island School of Design
Maine College of Art
Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design
School of Art Institute of Chicago
Otis College
Art Center College of Design
Minneapolis College of Art and Design

Chicago- October 20
Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design
Bowling Green State University
CalArts (again)
University of Kansas
Columbus College of Art and Design
Ringling College of Art and Design (again)

I received TONS of great feedback that will totally change how I draw, with what medium, and the subject. I took plenty of notes and plan on typing them up and posting them at my work space.

Lots of schools recommended to sign up for a life drawing class and to attend a summer pre college program. I found a few weekly figure drawing classes not too far from my house and plan on attending one regularly. I also will be looking into a some pre college programs. Right now I'm doing more research on the summer program at MIAD and will be looking at SAIC to see what they offer.

Here's what I showed to the admissions representatives from each school.

I put my sketches in a nifty portfolio case:

Here is a video of me flipping through the portfolio case:

And here is my demo reel that I showed:

I still have a very long way to go but I'm real excited.

This entire experience was super inspiring and fun. This week is the end of the quarter so I have Thursday and Friday off. I will be drawing  A LOT in this next week working with the knowledge of the new critiques I received.

Thanks for reading
