Skye--22--Richmond, VA:
A casual blog of my art, filled with school work, panic, personal art, works in progress and information!

Project 1 for Senior Portfolio (well a screen cap, at least)This is what I turned in for my crit today but even before our critique I realized I still have quite a few problems to solve! I’m excited to keep working on this project, but our Project 2 thumbnails are already due on Tuesday, so I’ll have to put it on the back burner for now.  Maybe it’s better that I can step back from it for a bit and return with fresh eyes and new ideas! 
Next up… why do fish float? A lesson in buoyancy and fish anatomy! <3

Portfolio: Logo Design

Portfolio: Mission Statement

"With a heart for exploration, and a strong belief in curiosity, I aim to learn and translate intricacy into simplicity to promote understanding.  The world around us contains infinite processes and complexities, and within these lie a minute level of detail which must be magnified."

Botanical Illustration: Unusual Produce

For our first botanical assignment, we were to go out and buy an unusual produce item (fruit, vegetable or herb) that we have either never seen before or never eaten!  I stopped by Tan A asian market on Broad Street and picked up a Choyote Squash, Bitter Melon and an Eddo (which is just another name for Taro Root)

In class, we took turns sharing our unusual produce and I taste-tested them all under the mantra that anything is edible if you eat it. Later I found out that eating uncooked taro root is poisonous but I only had a little so everything is fine.  The only thing I didnt eat was the bitter melon (until later when I tried and failed many times to make it taste less disgusting by first boiling it, then adding black beans, turkey sausage and olive oil…then curry, worcestershire sauce, Chinese 5 spice, lots of salt and pepper and onion. Still bitter)

Once we all decided on our products (mine will be Choyote Squash) we started making a visual note taking page!
More on that next!
