Summer!

Since it’s summer I might not post all that much. Actually, by now summer is almost over, and I haven’t posted anything… Actually, I haven’t even made this blog until now.

So let me fill you in on what’s happened so far!

Before the summer, I proposed my senior thesis idea (eventually for my senior show) to my teachers. To be honest I struggled thinking of an idea, and I’m still struggling figuring out which direction to go in exactly, but I have my topic: Movies! I did a write up on it (which I will post next, mainly to document my progress and changes that my thesis will undergo).

Then I had about a week before I was on a fourteen hour flight to… JAPAN!

This year I decided to take the summer courses our school offers in Niigata, Japan, as I was interested in learning woodblock printing and some bookbinding (I’ve also signed up for bookbinding in┬áthe fall as well to continue!) And I’m also really interested in Japan, especially the graphic design they do there! (They have so much impressive packaging design, you better believe I saved almost all of it! Which, maybe I’ll make a post about some of their packaging designs and such!)

It was truly a wonderful experience, and I still miss it to this day (having been home for a month now).

Though now that I’m home I’ve been focusing on finishing my homework for the classes in Japan, working on collating a book for the Comics class at my school, a job for a starting business, and artwork to sell at Boston Comiccon next month! Wish me luck, it’s a ton of work! But hopefully I’ll be able to update this blog regularly!
