So I'm at the University of the Incarnate Word. It's a private catholic university and I'm majoring in Graphic Design... and I LOVE it.
I have some feelings to share and then an idea!
So first off... things are so much fun! There's freedom, awesome projects, actually learning things I WANT to learn about, awesome professors, awesome new friends, UGH. AWESOME. The not so awesome part
is that I have loads of homework. To the point of when I'm done with my homework it's about midnight and I fall asleep to wake up at 7 to get to class by 9. Then it starts over again...
My weekends are more free than during the week, but they're not really... "free". More like I have more than a night to do some homework.As for my idea:
Something that I want to do is start posting what I do for homework in my Graphic Design classes. So far I've been posting them to my tumblr and instagram (I'll probably stop doing instagram though, I know nobody on there) and I want to start posting here too! I mostly post on those other sites because it's almost instant. There's not a bunch of boxes to check off or fill in when submitting, I just... submit. And it's there. But I think I can make time to post here if I have time to write this journal right? XD
I mostly thought about this just recently because we're finally moving away from the "basics" of design and really cookie-cutter stuff to projects that have more creative freedom. About to do a collage in photoshop to test out masking and blending modes using pictures that we can choose that represents a famous person or event. I chose the Gorillaz and I love that style so much so I think it'll be awesome when I'm done! Maybe if any of you are thinking about Graphic Design as a major
these lessons and things will be cool for you to look at and see how I interpret them.
I've also been too busy to check up on ZealZone
and we really need some critics
to help out... if you want to please let me know!
Also let me know how you've been the past month, I'd love to know!
Stay safe and have a great day!
