So, school has once again started and I've decided that it's been far too long again since I've updated so here I am with the news! My classes this semester consist of World of Ideas, (which is, in short, a politically fueled philosophy class surrounding the idea of 'obedience to authority'. It is, to the least, interesting and something that I'll be focusing a lot of my non-art time on.) Speech, Art History: Modern and Contemporary, Advanced Painting, and Advanced Drawing. I should also note that I was also taking Advanced Composition, but immediately dropped the class after one session. This class was bullshit on terrible levels and every single human in there was an Accounting major except for myself and the professor. They were all pompous, including my professor, and they spoke of everyone's major and decided to pointedly leave me out. It was all very stereotypical business/accounting major of them and I could have done without that. So! Next semester I will remedy this drop by taking Creative Writing instead.
Art wise, life has been...stressful. I've started my Junior Review dealing with Insecurities...but it still has a ways to go before it can be put on panel, which I've realized after discussing my idea with my professor. It's a simple enough idea, I just need to pull out of this constraint that I've thrown myself in and I need to start writing down ideas. Unfortunately, only tar comes to mind, so I'll have to make some interesting decisions on how to psychologically display the behavior of insecurities.
While I've been distracted with my Junior Review (being that of painting), I've ignored my Advanced Painting class. Not homework wise, but I usually think of interesting things to do before the beginning of class. So, now I'm having a mixture of thoughts like mixed media for my junior review involving drawing......AH. But yeah, journalling is the best way to get this all out and start organizing and creating.
Ideas for drawing:
Depicting several paintings of a man out of his sorts, involved and yet not involved at all with the world around him because he doesn't belong in the same space. Perhaps "Death". Perhaps influences around us, otherworldly. Death, Life. Two massive drawings, crowds of people. Death - handsome woman/man? Life - demented child. Perhaps on a crowded 20's train.
I'll probably be updating more and more on this. Sorry for my absence x)
