So last week, I started the International Foundation in Art and Design (IFAD) at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.
I kind of had this idea of just rambling on about it so one day I can bore my kids with it. ..But then I never got around to it. So I’ma just compress the first week in here.
The very first day, I was late because I got the TIME CONFUSED WHERE IT’S GMT+0.
I thought the daylight savings thing would have kicked in .. but yeah. I actually thought I was nearly an hour early, when in reality I was about 10 minutes late.
The first couple of weeks are called Orientation/Disorientation. HOW COOL IS THAT? Yes, basically I’m just spazzing all the time in my head, so my eyes are just super wide all the time. I probably look like a caffeine junkie, which is actually my housemate/classmate/so far closest friend Sy. She’s literally chanting coooffeeeee all the time. Not figuratively, literally.
That’s her on the right, and Sally on the left. We got invited to an international students’ dinner held by the Baptist Church next to the university. Food was good. People were nice. House was amazing. Dog was big.
The first thing I made in class was one of those egg-holders that are .. break-proof.. supposedly. I didn’t really have a design, and it almost worked.
..Ugh I’m tired now, continue later.
Yesterday was my first day of art school, and here’s what I’ve done so far.
It’s like, the most amazing time of my life, srsly ;__;
Painting T shirts is something I’ve been doing for money off-and-on for four years now, and it’s recently started to really take off. Of all the T shirts I’ve painted since I started (well over 50) this has been my favourite.
It has all the important elements of Donnie Darko wrapped into one image, in a flat-colour street art-style design. This, however, is not my own design, and I’d like to credit the original designer, but unfortunately was not able to find him/her even using the Google image search. So if anyone knows who it is, please let me know.
