get back on this.  Will probably re-do everything soon! xo

So Intro to Product & Transportation design classes just started and we just finished wk 2.. Now that we know our proportions (somewhat) all I need to do is figure out a technique that I can own and just try to loosen up & sketch sketch sketch! 

Anyone have any good suggestions for books or blogs that I can benefit from?

Hey guys,

Summer 2012 semester has been over for a month now and Fall 2012 semester is starting, so I’ll be posting what I did during the summer for these classes soon!  Been too busy to do it in the meantime, which I need to change starting now.  I will try to keep this tumblr updated at least once a week, hopefully with some things to show!

Stay posted xo

I realize I am a horrible tumblr blogger keeper or whatever, so I’m sorry for the lack of posts.  But anyway, the reason for my absence of posts is that I was stressed the fuck out and busy with stuff for class.  Just finished my classes at ACN and it feels good!  I’m debating whether or not I want to post photos of my second (final) project, because it isn’t even 50% finished…. had it critiqued in class anyway, and got some good feedback.

All things aside, I have some things to get back on track for.  A lot of things actually…

One (obvious) great way to motivate yourself in life is to read about the success of hard workers and entrepreneurs.  The ones I (and I’m sure for most as well) find most motivating are those who started out with nothing, or at one point lived their life losing everything - to read about what they had gone through and how they got through it, but most importantly, how they continued to push themselves past being “ok” again once they picked themselves up from their lowest point in life.

So I’ve set myself up for a challenge, because I haven’t done so in a long time - haven’t cared enough to do anything about it in a long time.  Just setting a few small goals for myself right now, which would hopefully help me build up to the bigger ones in the future!  This is for anyone really, thus the second-person narration.

  • Go to sleep earlier, and wake up extra early.  Not because of your job (if you have one), not for someone else (e.g. your boss), not because of school (AM classes).  Wake up extra early not for any other reason but yourself - don’t waste the day, seize it.
  • Manage your time.  This is really, really important.  I can’t stress HOW important this is… You can’t get anything done if you don’t manage it well!  I’ve suffered (and am currently suffering on-and-off) from this, badly.  There literally are not enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do, so this needs to be straightened up.
  • Get things done efficiently, but not so efficiently that there is no care done with it.  I’m kind of a perfectionist, and it’s hard to break, but I’ve learned that not everything can be perfect, so you just gotta do what you can within a reasonable time.  I tend to work really slowly, or end up procrastinating.  Obviously needs to stop, right now.
  • Most importantly, believe in yourself, and don’t ever give up.  Don’t make excuses, just do it.  If you don’t believe in yourself and try things out for yourself, no one can help you!  You will be the blame for your own failure.  But even then, so what?  Pick yourself back up again and keep reaching for the sky and don’t let anyone ever stop you from doing so.

That’s it for now.  My brain is so blank right now.  I should be sleeping.  But I feel so awake and alive!  I am ready to change, I just hope I can keep up.

Something I need to work on!

So I guess I should finally actually use this thing, after having it for months. Hopefully it’ll get me started on my own art projects and I’ll post them here for the world to see…  Stay tuned! xo
