Procrastination :(

Idk why I'm procrastinating SO HARD on my stupid essays. I just can't write anything meaningful or logical at all :'(
But on a brighter note I just finished my very first illustration-type-thing for school (aw yeah even though it's like the end of semester 1)

I'll leave the interpretations up to you, but I'm hoping you guys get what I wanted them to be because... if your guess is totally wrong then there's a problem...


aww see, they love me :') 
I think I have a husky problem. Who needs a dozen cats when you can have tons... and tons... of huskies...

Royal Winter Fair + Sheridan Illustration Merch

I had the chance to go to the Royal Winter Fair yesterday in downtown Toronto with about 12 of my classmates. It had to be the best field trip I've ever been on,  you can't beat 5 hours of straight animal drawing :D

Everyone got their own mini Sheridan Illustration stool (it had Sheridan Illus. on it, I felt so cool ;u; ) and we sat in front of the animals and talked to them (or yelled if they moved, there was a lot of that happening). I tried using different mediums, but it all went back to pencil in the end. Watercolour was SO BAD holy shit now I've got to practice so I don't disgrace myself in public again.
And drawing in public was mildly terrifying. I've creeped people in public before, that doesn't even bother me, but when you're drawing the animals people walk by you and stare over your shoulder,
But yeah, it was fun and I could've stayed for another couple of hours (next time).

One of my classmates Melissa posted her sketches online too, you should check them out!

And in other news I officially love Sheridan. They had a mini-sale for the fourth year illustration grad show and I bought some stuff. I'm totally going to save money JUST SO I CAN BUY ILLUSTRATION MERCH.

Last years Grad book (so nice, the quality of the printing is beautiful! And the illustrations are okay too :p).

Some Kailey Lang buttons (Melissa grabbed the pair of earrings I was debating on buying, WHY). These things are so cute, like, they melt my heart (even if you can't tell by the photo).

Life's good when you can draw animals and buy really adorable buttons :)

Weekly Sketches #2

You'll see as the weeks go on the pictures get progressively worse (this week was pretty good though). I'm 12 pages behind and I don't have the drive to make anything creative.
UGH I'm going to extra life drawing tomorrow so maybe I'll end up doing some interpretive life drawing.
or something.

Painting 1

You know you're desperate when the only thing you can upload are still lives :'(
I'm sorry I don't draw anymore ;n;

Paintings start from week 3 to the end of midterm. It's pretty cool how we have to train ourselves on how we perceive colour, like where tones are warmer and cooler. And even when you can't use pre-mixed blacks or browns the class is pretty fun. 
Plus my prof is super nice and extremely helpful which makes me want to work harder :'D

Figure Drawing 1

Got my figure drawing portfolio #1 back today and I got an A :D!
My prof is the type of marker who is, "an easy marker but it's hard to get a good mark" type of guy (his exact words no joke). So the A was like... so much more awesome :')

He took my best pictures out of my portfolio, idk if he's putting them up or what, but if he does put any up I'm going to take a picture and blog it tomorrow x)

This one was my favourite out of everything.
Like, it was perfect ;o;

I know it's only my first 2 months of school, but that mark just totally made my week ;u;
OVERFLOWING WITH JOY AND HAPPINESS (my family can't take it much longer)
