Latest assignment completed! We had one week to illustrate any scene from the first chapter of Harry Potter (I almost had a heart attack from the excitement srsly). And because I love my Silhouette Cameo to death, I did papercuts of course.
Taking an illustration class in the midst of all of this GD thesis planning and job applications is really a breath of fresh air. I had so much fun with this one although the background
I can’t do perspective for shit so I just made it warpy and whimsicalgave me a lot of grief.

Happy birthday, Harry Potter!
To celebrate Harry’s birthday (and my undying love for the series), I made my own covers! I created patterns (Thanks for the inspiration Scandinavia!) using a significant object from each book. I used those in the movies as reference and digitally painted them. You can view the whole project here! :)

Table Topography: Wood Furniture Embedded with Glass Rivers and Lakes by Greg Klassen
Let me be clear: Unarmed college hopefuls don’t deserve to be shot. Unarmed kids heading to work or trade school don’t deserve to be shot. Unarmed kids floundering aimlessly through life don’t deserve to be shot. Unarmed kids who have been in trouble—even those who have been nothing but trouble—don’t deserve to be shot.
The act of pinning the tragedy of a dead black teen to his potential future success, to his respectability, to his “good”-ness, is done with all the best intentions. But if you read between the lines, aren’t we really saying that had he not been on his way to college, there’d be less to mourn?
That’s dead wrong.”
I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:
1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear. ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me? So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”
2) Women not having cheat codes. ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me. I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me. Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”
3) Women not being a hive mind. ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles. Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all. Make up your mind, women!”
4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”
Don’t forget “actual unwillingness to make an effort to understand women as a result of profound and privileged laziness” as a cause of the “women are mysterious” thing. That’s actually the one I run into the most.
"Women are confusing." "No we’re not. Everything I’m saying makes linear, logical sense. I could draw you a fucking flowchart of everything I’ve just said. You just don’t want to listen to me because that would mean stirring from the stagnant, self-satisfied torpor you’ve immersed yourself in, confident that because I’m a woman, you don’t ACTUALLY have to think about or engage with anything I say." "Wow, like, all that? Super confusing.”
