Thanks for looking, as always :)

Elements 7-12





Here's the next batch! Credit for Oxygen's design goes to my buddy Ashley.

Also, once I put them all up I will also have a "thank you" section that will include everyone who has helped in the thesis process as well as in the process of "Elements" as a concept in the past years. So look out for that in the future!

More coming tomorrow!

Elements 1-6





Decided to put all the Elements up on this blog, 6 at a time. I currently have a website in the works but in the meantime I'll throw them up here for those who haven't gotten to see them yet. Expect the rest as the week goes on!

Senior Exhibition Success

Hi everyone!

Well, senior thesis is officially over - we had a very successful Preview Night on Wednesday and an awesome Gallery Night on Friday! I received so many great compliments about my work and I thank everyone who came out to see it! There were truly a great batch of projects this year and I was thrilled and proud to be a part of it.

I've got three weeks of the semester to finish up, and in the meantime I am concocting some plans for the Elements and will definitely keep everyone updated on that front!

Postcards and Last Night


Postcards arrived today! (finally...) There are four of these as well as four corresponding buttons that will be available for free tomorrow night and Friday at the exhibitions!

Well, this is my last night of relaxation; tomorrow night is Preview Night, and my family as well as some professionals and community members will be coming to view the show! It'll be an awesome time - if you're in the Milwaukee area you should definitely come check it out!

In other news, I'm so burned out from thesis that my drawing skills are really rusty - that does not fare well because I have a ton of drawing to do before next Tuesday. :( Any pointers for fighting art block?

Thanks a lot guys, see some of you tomorrow!

Senior Thesis Update #7

Hi guys!

Well, thesis is almost done! Well, technically it hasn't even started yet but the process is almost done. Check it out!


All the elements are printed and mounted on their respective boards. These boards will be installed tomorrow (Friday) night so nobody messes with them. Hooray!


Also, I have buttons! Four different kinds - Silver, Bromine, Carbon, and Radon. These four will also be featured on my postcards, which have just been shipped (but will probably not be here until Monday). Oh! And I also entered those four (and Titanium) into this year's 3x3 Illustration competition (Young Adult); not sure anything will come of that but it never hurts to try!

Otherwise, my shelf is up, my business cards are ready to go, and I'll be helping install nameplates tomorrow for my and everyone else's spaces. All I really have left to do is install my boards, fix my portfolio, and write my artist statement and put that up. Victory is near! I'll take pictures of my finished space tomorrow or Saturday and put them up here so you guys can see it.

Well, bye for now!

Senior Thesis Update #6


This is what the elements look like in their final templates, complete with fun facts! Oxygen's design is credited to my dear friend Ashley. <3

Update!!

Alright, so I'm closing in on the end of the project. As of today my elements are all printed, my mounting boards are 95% completed, and my goal today is to get all said elements trimmed and mounted on said boards! And if I have time, maybe I'll get my button templates in order so I can have some sweet buttons to give away. But that might wait until tomorrow.

So yeah! I'm pretty excited. Overall I still have a lot of loose ends to tie up but the bulk of the work should be ready today. I don't think I'll be installing my show until Friday since it's in the main hallway and I don't want anyone to see it/mess it up before the deadline, but I should be ready to go long before then if all goes well. :)

Yay! I'll try and update throughout the week as updates allow.
