Goodbye Bon Appetit... Water Cycles Anyone??

Made this at Bon Appetit on my last day because I was not asked to do even ONE task that day. It was a very productive day in the end.

Sketchbook Catch-up Part 2

Why can't we all just stop be a bunch of WHINERS for a second yeah?! I'm sad to leave New York but am excited to get back to Ann Arbor but not thrilled about going back to school. Never satisfied--But thus is life.

Anyways here are a few more sketches

the whiner

The Ribbon Dance

The Word "Dark" (I don't know why this title turned into a link??)
This drawing was going to have the word wood under it... itttt was never added.

Sketchbook Catch-Up part1

In this first post of my 2 post sketchbook catch-up, I will be showing my smaller drawings... some may even call them doodles.

DOODLES, I think, are a wonderful thing. I have read and heard several times in the past, that it is a great activity to partake in while listening to a lecture. It keeps your brain active enough that you don't completely zone out or get into that state where you physically can not hold your eyes open against gravity anymore because you're so bored–BUT is also an easy enough thing to do without much brain activity that you can pay attention to what's being said. There is also, I think, a more scientific explanation for this... but obviously, i just took someone's word for it.

My FATHER actually is a HUGE doodler and would totally back me up on this theory. He's been doodling during classes and meetings for DECADES. His drawings are actually really beautiful if you can believe it. I'll try to get him to let me post a few sometime.

Anyways, I've stumbled upon a wonderful PEN and that has kind of guided a new direction in my doodling style...

Bjork, McQueen.

I've been inside a lot lately and thus doing a bit more drawing than usual.

Most of every thing is in my sketchbook so I'll put it up sooon but for noow... is a sketch I did of Bjork (on my tablet). Iiiii have spent an insane amount of time in the last few days just listening to her music, watching her crazy videooos, and just drooling over her awesome awesome repertoire of creative out-put. I WANT to do more WORK and to try out all different kinds of mediums and just have FUN again! Work is great and all but I'm really ready to jump into something more motivating annnd imaginative now.

I've always had kind of a tiny girl-crush on her but I got on this binge after talking to my boss at Spunk Design about her for awhile. He, as well, is an avid fan and spoke of the time they chatted at a party in ny. It all was going really well for him as they talked until he realized she was the love of his life and awkwardly excused himself... what a horrible way to react to that kind of realization haha.

Another person that really sparked this intense craving for weird and crazy work that feeds off the creators imagination is Alexander McQueen. I just saw his exhibit in The Met recently (which was made possible only because my mom is a member and so we could skip the 3 HOUR LABYRINTH of a line) and it was really quite extraordinary. Everyone should go see it accompanied by a Met membership card.. they make great dates. Each outfit was a product of a whole environment that was first created in McQueens head -a story, a character, a place, a feeling... I think it fits more in the category of costume design and fine art than fashion design.

That last image directly above wasn't in the exhibit but gave me a really great ALice in Wonderland / Matthew Barney vibe. Matthew Barney (Bjork's husband) being another one of those artists who's imagination you love to be scared of. Sooo beautiful but often very creepy. Love it.

Mk sooo see you again after I've attempted to begin my new endeavor to produce create imagine.. I should look a tad bit more like Bjork then... maybe.
