Since I'm back home with little opportunity to photograph street style, I'll be gearing my posts to musings and weekly posts of collections and sketches. I have a list of goals and "an accountability partner" to see that I stay on track. The hot days are known to make me fall short of my intentions sometimes.
To start off, I wanted to do an analysis of past work and present. I feel that I've grown tremendously over this past year as an artist and designer. To show you what I mean, below are 3 sketches from 2006 (my sohomore or junior year of high school) and 3 sketches from this past quarter.
Here's to continued growth and to my fellow artists/designers. To keep me going this summer, my theme song is "Creator" by Santogold. It gets me pumped and reminds me of what I am or hope to be.
"Me, I'm a Creator /Thrill is to make it up /The rules I break got me a place Up on the radar/Me, I'm a Taker/ Know what the stakes are/ Can't roll it back, it's understood/ Got to play our cards"
If you're a fan of Santogold, good music, and Nylon than I recommend (or rather insist) that you a) pick up the July 09 copy of Nylon and b) go to nylonmag.com/itunes to download a 22 song playlist of groovy artists including Santogold. Oh yes, it's free loves!
