eastern-hemlock asked: Hey there! I was wondering how you liked VCU? I grew up in the Richmond area (King William if you know of it) and always wrote it off as not wanting to go to a big school (especially out in Richmond, not really big on busy city areas). It's sort of funny because I wanted to do pre-med when I was applying for Undergrad and now I've moved on to a major in Biology and a minor in art to try and do a lot of the work that you're doing for classes now, but trying to do it for myself without instruction


Answer:

Why, hello! :)
I love VCU!! At first I was really unsure if I wanted to go to school here because I didn’t know much about Richmond and it seemed kind of dirty and dangerous and big-city but now that I’ve been here for four years, I don’t want to leave! VCU is fantastic and dynamic and alive with creativity and diversity and ILOVEITSOMUCH. 
It’s interesting that you are majoring in BIo and minoring in art because I am doing the exact opposite! I have a major in Communication Arts (Illustration) with a concentration in Scientific/Medical illustration and minor in biology! :D It must be difficult to teach yourself! If you want any suggestions on reading material or anything, I’d be happy to help! Keep working hard!! 
Also sorry for the thousands of exclamation points, I’ve had a lot of coffee!!!

wabagoo asked: I see you're using black gouache! I'm curious, is there any particular reason why you use it rather than straight up ink?


Answer:

Ah, yes, actually! I’ve found that black gouache produces much better results when laying down flat areas of black. If mixed properly and allowed to dry, there aren’t any issues with overlapping brushstrokes/thicknesses of paint.  Also, it isn’t absorbed as much as ink is into the paper because of its composition, leaving a thick opaque layer of pigment on the papers surface. This provides a very solid, matte black that absorbs the most light and is great for pieces that you want a lot of contrast in!! Woo! 
(so for this project, which is a celestial map illustration, it’s perfect ^-^ )

Anonymous asked: your cubist self-portraits, while not cubist, are AWESOME!


Answer:

Hahaha Oy yeah I know they’re not actually cubist, it was just assigned after we talked about cubism and abstraction and whatnot! Also thank you very much ^-^
