I have a TON of good news today! Eeeee! I'll try to cover everything in order.
I'm still able to invite, if someone is interesting in becoming a film member of deviantART.
I bought a new camera lens! I haven't really had time to do any photoshoots with it yet, though. I hope to do some soon and have lots of sweet new pictures to upload!
Here's the super big news:
Sunday was my 22nd birthday and I had a DINOSAUR themed birthday party at this really awesome dinosaur-themed restaurant with electronic moving dinos and cool decorations and stuff. It was incredibly fun, a ton of my friends and family were able to make it, and I got lots of presents, including Portal 2! But the most awesome part was my last present, from my boyfriend. It was a giant pink box with adorable smiling cupcakes on the wrapping paper. I opened up the lid and inside was a nest with a huge dinosaur egg, and a card. The card was hand-drawn by my boyfriend's sister (original idea designed by my boyfriend) and had a dilophosaurus (my favourite dinosaur) on the front, and said "You're turning 22! And I think it would be dinomite..." (I'm also a huge fan of terrible puns), and on the inside it had a boy and a girl dilophosaurus playing video games and said "if you picked me as your player 2!" I opened up the egg and inside was a small box. Then my boyfriend got down on one knee and opened the box, which had my engagement ring inside. I said YES! My engagement ring has the symbols from the Playstation controller on either side of the diamond, with coloured gems set in the symbols. He had it custom made and it is AMAZING! It fits us so well, since we love playing video games together.
Also, after the party we went to Dave and Buster's, which was super fun. I had never been before and I had wanted to for a while. We played a bunch of games and I got a Pikachu plushie with my tickets!
I'll for sure take pictures of the ring soon. I love it so much!
And finally, I'm pretty much done for the semester! My last final was today, and I turned in a 28-page business plan early so I could get extra credit. The only thing I have left to do is finish up my honors project (Dorky Dino). I can't finish it until I get my stuff in the mail, though. I ordered a bunch of cool products, business cards, letterheads, envelopes, and a banner! I can't wait to get them! I'll update and let everyone know when I get products online. Should be awesome!
Sometimes I feel like graphic design doesn't get enough attention. That's probably because it seems like the boring business side of things, when conceptual and expressive art can be much more fun! But I would like to show you that graphic design can be fun, attractive, and make you think, as well!
This is the forth of my graphic design features. This is all stuff that either didn't fit into the other categories I featured, or I found after I had already done them. Check them out and be inspired!
