hi hey what's up? this weekend/week has been jam packed with assignments and research essays and things i should be doing but neglecting (for example i should be revising my write-up on laura letinsky that i have to hand in tomorrow but i'm making this blog post instead because i've been at school all day and i need a break!!!)
(a song to listen to while you read this post)
so some new art things:
this is a drawing i made called "do not tell me to smile"and i just thought it would make a fun tshirt design since i usually walk around downtown with a scowl on my face (k well there are tons of scary intimidating people downtown and if i look mad then usually people don't talk to me)
(aforementioned t shirt design on tshirt- ft a very crummy iron on)
and here's my 16mm film video that i started in october that i talked about in a previous post. all the footage is found but all frames have been manually altered with glitter, nail polish, scratching etc. afterwards the teacher assistants took our footage and turned it digital and then i edited the clips on imovie! (also the sound was all found and rearranged)
last week the very talented kendra posted the drawings that we collaborated on and i think she did an absolute incredible job with pairing our two different styles together. i've loved kendra's art for such a long time so you can imagine how happy i was when i saw these!!!!
if you don't already, you should follow her here and here because she's super rad and creates really unique work!
and here are some of her drawings:
on sunday i went thrifting with my mom because it was 50% offf day and i couldn't pass that up duh
so i bought a really fuzzy sweater that makes me look like a crazy snow monster- perfect for xmas time
a candy cane thsirt (i sense a holiday theme hm)
a cutey baby doll-esque cardigan
SO MUCH LACE, a huge ball of red yarn so i can make a hat/i'm also using it as a prop for my next film piece, and It's Kind of a Funny Story (i've read the book but i still need to see the film ahhh)
and this was from a few weeks ago but i also found a carpenters record ah!!!
as i mentioned at the beginning of this post, i have a photography final due in a few weeks that focuses on the canadian artist Laura Letinsky and her work. the point of the assignment is to pick a photographer and try to use their style as an inspiration for our shoots. i'm really excited about this assignment and i've already shot and developed 2 rolls and i'll definitely be uploading everything when i'm done!
a lot of her photos focus on leftovers, decay, the delicacy of organic matter and past events which are all concepts that make her photos more than just visually appealing. here are a few of my favourites from her:
thank you for reading! i promise i'm going to try and start bringing my camera around with me more often when i'm at school because at the moment it looks like i never leave my room!!!
