2010 work- First Project


So I guess I've been hiatus. Last semester we had a bunch of open assignments and I varied them to tailor different styles/portfolios. I realized that I couldn't decide on one style (not because I'm indecisive, I just don't want to limit myself) so I pinned down my styles to Editorial, Cutesy, and Creative. I'll be updating this with last semester stuff in the next few days... I PROMISE!

My first project was an editorial based on an article in Psychology Today. It was about how introverts aren't necessarily antisocial, but like to reflect and organize their thoughts. A nice quote from it was "Introverts are collectors of thoughts and solitude is where the collection is curated and rearranged to make sense of the present and future." Here is some process work.

I was really happy with how this turned out. Even though some people mention it looks like her guts, I wanted to convey her brain and how she "organizes" her thoughts into brain-like containers. Puzzle pieces would have been to obvious. Hooray for conceptual thinking!
