Here is a logo I did for a friend of mine for her business. The Illustration came easily, but the type was very hard to do; spacing, placement. I know next to nothing about type. I should take a class on it. Typography is very interesting.

Final Proposal

Here is my final submission for the Bay Window Project. Made the scale model...which was a new experience for me, my head just about exploded with all the math I had to do!
But I am pleased with the results.

BSU Bay Window Project

So exciting news for myself, as well as a confidence booster. I was accepted to the next stage of the Bay Window Project at BSU. The project was a call for artists to submit ideas to BSU to add Art to their permanent collection. The works accepted will be hung in the Student Union Building for everyone to see. I haven't been truly accepted yet, but they did allow me to move on to the second stage, which is building a scale model of my idea for the public to view and comment on. I don't even care if I get chosen, just the fact that I got off my bum and tried for something is GREAT! ...not that I will try any less to get accepted. I'm definitely going for it!
My idea is based on the prints "Snowday" and "Sundown." The idea is to take one print based on nature and turn it into an abstract idea through repetition. I'm not sure on a title yet, but here are the sketches...

This is a woodblock print I did in January. I've been enjoying working with the concept of nature as abstract. A great artist to check out, if anyone is interested, is Gerhard Richter and his book entitled "Wald." He does an amazing job of capturing the idea of abstraction in nature.
