pre-graphic design

i'm finally finished with my freshman year of pre-graphic design classes! woohooo! i loved my drawing and design classes but i won't miss being in biggin all the time. caroline says biggin was eating her friend. i don't really miss pulling all-nighters weekly, but i will miss hanging out with all my friends in the studio when we did have to stay up all night before a project was due. and i will definitely be sad when i don't see them as much next semester because most of them applied for summer graphic design. i do still have 2 exams left to study for, but i am so thankful to have a little more time on my hands to rest and hang out with friends. and now i'll just be waiting to see if I get into graphic design for the fall at the end of the summer. i know it's in the Lord's hands and i trust He will put me right where He wants me to be to glorify His name!

i'm going to post all my projects, i just need to re-take a bunch of the pictures, so here's just one for now.

Drawing 1- this was a project in class one day taking one of my professor's prints and altering them to be our own while leaving a few elements from his print in the piece. Professor Velazquez is also the printmaking teacher and is extremely talented. He co-owns a print company called Drive By Press where he hand cuts designs into wood and then custom prints on site. Hopefully I'll get to take his printmaking class one semester.

beauty divine

Does it ever catch your eye?
Beauty divine
In an old man's tears
A little girl's smile
If it feels like a song
One that belongs to you

Stop making sense
Your weakest defense
Just quiet your mind
Let the world unwind

See we're not alone
He makes Himself known
in time, His own time

So Breathe
Life will surprise you
Just Be
It's what the world denies you
You see
The truth is all around you

We're not alone
He makes Himself known
in time, His own time

So Breathe
Life will surprise you
Just Be
It's what the world denies you
You see
The truth is all around you
Believe, Believe

Does it ever catch your eye?

jars of clay

7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. 8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. 11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So death is at work in us, but life in you.

13 Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, 14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. 15 For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.

16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self [3] is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:7-18
