Hey guys! How are you?
Me? Oh, I'm okay just stressed a little lately. I'm in the middle of finishing my final projects for this semester, plus tying up any other unfinished assignments. So far I have the following to do:
Graphic Design Class - Art Deco Poster
Graphic Design Class - Two Logos - One Black and White, One Color
Graphic Design Class - Finish Sketchbook Collages and Pre-Sketches for Projects (about 4 items in total)
Drawing - Illustration of my choice that includes at least one person, one tree, one form of transportation, and utilizes perspective. Done in colored pencil and ink.
Drawing - Finish Sketchbook, Four Sketches with five thumbnails each
Typography - Two Book Assignments (due tomorrow)
Typography - Single Leaf Newsletter about a city or town of my choice, created in InDesign, includes 10 activities, a mailer, a QR Code, and a Bar Code, printed and bound (this is also due tomorrow)
Everything else is due next week. I've already started on all of it, but I'm still stressed because I also need to find time to study for the written parts of the Graphic Design, Photoshop, and Typography final exams I have to take next week as well.
And then there is Christmas! I've been invited to three parties this month. One of which I had to decline because it is for this weekend and there is just no way with all this work I have to do.
I also have family coming from out of state to visit for Christmas, and I hardly ever get to see them, so I'm looking forward to that, but it's still a little bit of stress planning for their stay. That's a good stress, though, or at least I like to consider a good stress because I have fun planning for family visits. Still I also need to finish Christmas shopping. I have six more people to buy for, but the vast majority of my Christmas shopping is done and those are all wrapped. We already have our Christmas Tree and Wreath, but neither are decorated yet. I hope to get that done before the weekend is over.
My saving grace is that my amazing husband got me a computer program that I used to use years ago to organize and plan my life. So now everything is neatly put together, and I shouldn't forget anything, and I can plan better because I see everything in advance. Awesome!
Personal Art and Owed Art wise.. Well I plan to get at least both commissions plus two busts that I owe completed before the new year. Plus I have a few other pieces I'm doing for myself because my God I've missed it, and I'm going to go nuts if I don't draw something that I want to. So definitely be expecting art this month. I really want to draw something and get a few more pieces of my Art Owed list. The Christmas Busts I'm also working on and currently have 3 of the 25 completed. I'll have the first 5 posted on December 5th since people seem to want them spaced out.
These don't take me long to do at all so there is no concern.
Speaking of the Art Owed List, because of the planner I was able to do a proper scheduling of all the art I owe. I should have everything that I owe people completed by the beginning of Summer! w00t w00t! Thanks again for everyone being patient. I really am trying and I don't want to forget anyone. ;3; I have it all written down pretty and what not so I won't forget.
I'll be done with Fall Semester in two weeks. Classes end next week, but then there is a week of Final Exams. Then I'm out of class for Winter Break for about a month before Spring Semester starts in the middle of January.
Thank God I obsessively love art, or I'd be completely miserable.
And that's what I'm currently up to! So, what about you? Do you have plans for Christmas? Art plans for this month? Some other plans? Let's chat!
Love you guys dearly~
