Sunday Morning 

Passions of rain, or moods in falling snow;
Grievings in loneliness, or unsubdued
Elations when the forest blooms; gusty
Emotions on wet roads on autumn nights;
All pleasures and all pains, remembering
The bough of summer and the winter branch.

We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.
Deer walk upon our mountains, and the quail
Whistle about us their spontaneous cries;
Sweet berries ripen in the wilderness;
And, in the isolation of the sky,
At evening, casual flocks of pigeons make
Ambiguous undulations as they sink,
Downward to darkness, on extended wings. 

Wallace Stevens

Soooo this was the vector I was talking about in my last blog post! I had some free time and wanted to experiment with making more realistic vectors because mine haven't been so great in the past. I'm pretty happy with this one! The quality is pretty awful here, so check out my flickr page if you want to see a higher quality version! 

Anyway just thought I'd share some of the projects I've been working on. Now back to pinning! I'm obsessed. Does anyone else have an account?

My room at its cleanest (these were taking a loonngggg time ago). This weekend was surprisingly slow work wise so I was able to experiment with vectors that I'm actually really happy with (photos will hopefully come soon - still working on it). Also finished a roll of film which includes the nicest weekend in Toronto as well as some photos from Montreal in fall, I'm really excited to get them developed!

Soooo I haven't exactly been making good on my promise to post more often, school has been completely hectic the last few weeks! I did get a chance to go back to Toronto for Thanksgiving which was really nice, I'll have photos from that as soon as I can get myself over to the store to get them developed. The weekend was so beautiful and surprisingly warm, so I was busily running around the city to take advantage of the amazing weather.

I've been thinking that since my whole life revolves around school right now, I should start posting some of my design work that I make in class. For my last intermedia assignment, we were given the task of creating a typeface. Being creative with our materials was highly encouraged, so I decided to use 35mm film to create my alphabet. My idea of collage quickly evolved into 3D letters and I used a light box to capture the traces of the photographs on the strips of negative. Anyway here is my completed typeface:

You can view the full version on my flickr account if you are interested! Anyway that took up wayyy too many hours of my life these past few weeks so I just wanted to share.
