Today I turned in the first of the paper work for my summer internship and put the first downpayment for my housing. So it’s official, I’m going to D.C. this summer. Don’t get me wrong, I’m supper excited about this it’s just that I can’t wrap my head around it quite yet.
I’m not really a forward thinker, the farthest ahead I tend to think about is the end of the month. It make processing things a lot easier and less overwhelming. Another reason why this doesn’t seem real is because of the time of the year. School ends in less than like 4 weeks and everything is starting to pile up. Hell, I have a term paper due next Tuesday and I have never written one in my life.
Wish me luck internet. Life is about to get pretty crazy.
Last summer my Shakespeare troop asked me to create a new logo for them. What I did was recreate a portrait of The Bard using his words to make his face. He is made entirely out of the names of his characters and his play titles. In the end this was the finished project:
Not only did my producers love this (I gave them the original) but so did everyone else who I showed it to. This led to an idea for my latest on going project. I call it A Thousand Words. Basically the main idea of this project steams from the fact that words hold power. They can influence nations to band together or destroy each other. A person’s words live on even after they have died. So far I’ve do Maya Angelou, Jane Austin, Oscar Wilde, and H.P. Lovecraft.
Now the really exciting part of this project is that I entered the images that I so far had in a contest for a seminar that was happening on campus. The topic was, “What makes us Human?” They were looking for some media and fine art related works to the topic. The winners would be invited to talk at the seminar and receive $100. Wouldn’t you know it, I won! Not only that but I’ve also started selling some custom made Thousand Words and people seem to really like them.
While I am going to continue on this project, I feel that my next one is going to be a little bit darker than my others.
