Tag Archives: 104

and it all came tumbling out.

Now that I have been away from that godforsaken computer lab in 104 for a few days, and have already started our final project for the semester I am feeling a little less completely consumed by bitter rage as I previously felt [circa Friday’s review around 2pm]. I have even gone back to liking packaging, and have even found a stellar site that is all about it The Dieline [thanks to following FFFFOUND! on tumblr that posted some stuff from thedieline.com – isn’t the internet a funny little thing (or rather, never-endingly-huge)?]
I am proud of what I accomplished for the third project in theory and in graphics – which I was actually done with Wednesday night. I am not proud of the “end result” I produced for Friday’s review. I just couldn’t get things together, and it seems as if everything that could go wrong did, of course, go terribly wrong. I think that if every project this semester had gone so generally smoothly as they had been going, that perhaps the karma backlash I would’ve experienced would have been much more devastating than the one that I did have. I was burnt out and angry over being in that stupid, small computer room for so many days in a row with what seemed like nothing to show for it – but, of course, as a simple third year student I had simply forgotten that all projects are for the greater good of THE PORTFOLIO and not necessarily ‘the review.’ Days, MANY extra hours of sleep and some good meals of chips&dip and/or nachos [to ease the ‘WTF STUDIO SUCKED’ pains] later, I am back to being a happy little studio worker and am looking forward to this new project.

Project Four is a serious group project about non-motorized transportation. I’m working with Allison, one of my loverly former roommates, and Chris, a boy that can sketch like nobody’s business, on wheel-related transportation. I’m not usually a group project person, but thus far, I’m very happy with my group and I know that they’re both fantastic designers/hard workers. Looking forward to what this project has in store.

epidemik.

I went to a screen printing party @ the Epidemik Coalition office/home of Ted. It was really rad and I did what DVA said and I made friends with people. Ted gave me a tour of the office space upstairs and got a sort of ‘inside scoop’ on what they do.
Pretty interesting to see those kids outside of 104 and actually talk about different things.
I’m excited to get more involved in IDSA and start some things.
Screenprinting was soo fun; I forgot how much I enjoy it. I think I’m going to put a screenprinting kit on my Christmas list [with a new Lomo flash ring, etc.]
I’ve also decided I need to think more seriously about getting a bike – or a bike that is practical for city riding and is not a sweet orange Paul Frank cruiser that sits in my apartment and holds magazines. Parking over in downtown ATL was so sketch, and I’m awful at parallel parking [although I did manage on my second try].
Speaking of sketch, I know what I have to do the rest of this weekend!
Hopefully we’ll all be amazed on Monday.
