    Picture Me This…

    Do I take a lot of photos now? HA. Ask my moms who are CONSTANTLY making fun of me for my over use of Snapchat. As someone who appreciates a good visual, or prefers to see the face of of the person I am talking to, I have a huge appreciation for the use of pictures, especially as a form of communication. Truly, I take pictures of everything. Aside from the hundreds of thousands of Snapchats I have sent, I like to photograph animals, people, nature, and will not shy away from snapping a quick pic of my “to-do” list. When the lighting is hitting just right, sometimes the camera…

    Wanna See the Sign ?

    Showing off some basic sign language skills by using the alphabet to spell out digital storytelling! Included a the sign for “I love you” at the end as a little bonus (and because I love the class!). One day I actually hope to become more educated on sign language and would love to be able to hold a conversation using real signs as opposed to using the alphabet to spell out words.

    A Little Design for Your Day

    This is a cartoon/animated version of me and my sister!! I really love combining artistic realism/accuracy along with animation to create realistically drawn cartoons! Details are important, but come harder for me, so this is one of my favorite ways to spend time doing art.

But what if our fears were actually afraid of us? “How do you find yourself? ”Your honor, I find myself NOT guilty” Ok. You might be wondering how I ended up here. Me. In COURT. If you know me at all, you know how afraid and out of place I feel here. And anyway the reason I’m here isn’t even my…

    Week 2 of DS106

    Oh man this week was BUSY busy busy. To fill our time this week we began daily creative challenges called “daily creates”. Everyday we get an assignment posted on twitter and have to respond to them with whatever creative strategy we want to employ. This is the first time I have ever used hashtags for their real purpose, finding other posts with the same hashtag! Previously my experience with hashtags would be for #funny or to be #relatable or join a #trend. Though I knew their intended purpose, this is an interesting first experience actually applying them! I have been having a lot of fun with the daily creates, however…

    Artistic Ambition

    I wouldn’t consider myself a highly ambitious person. I mean…Uhhh…Oof. This sounds like it should have a negative connotation, but in all honesty, not a lot of things can hold my interest long enough for me to feel passionate about them. Again, not the most bright and shiny statement, but it is what it is. One thing that has always been able to keep a hold on me has been art. Over the last few years I have begun to realize what type of art I am most interested in, and what kind of artist I WANT to be. In high school I was a musically inclined artist. I sang…
