Devious Journal Entry

Many new things at my Etsy shop! If you like cute little pendants and cool minimalistic posters, that shop is the place for you. Follow the link below! In other news, I applied for a giant private student loan yesterday. What have I gotten myself into? Oh well, I'm still in love with college, even if it's the most expensive lover in the world. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! ----------------- Etsy - http://mercedesbird.etsy.com YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/user/artgrlkiki OpenCanvas Download: http://mitglied.lycos.de/knyayane/opencanvas.htm

I was accepted to MCAD. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I get excited every time I think about it! I'm excited to meet up with old SES friends there, as well as get a fresh start. High school is still as heavy as ever, but oh I am sooo excited to do something new and move on mmmm. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Etsy - http://mercedesbird.etsy.com YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/user/artgrlkiki Tumblr - http://www.mercedesbird.tumblr.com OpenCanvas Download: http://mitglied.lycos.de/knyayane/opencanvas.htm

Wrapping Up and Packing Up

Wrapping Up and Packing Up

Hello, dA! It's been awhile, though as you can see, I've been uploading pretty frequently on here. This is all in preparation of my portfolio, which I should be sending to MCAD by tomorrow! I've looked through a lot of recent work as well as uploaded some old work for archiving; I'm putting my chosen pieces on a Powerpoint on a CD to ship out. Ohh, wish me luck! I'm so excited! And scared, but, you know, where's that going to get me? I've already funneled it into making my statement of interest and portfolio the best they can be. All I can hope is that my best is good enough. Eeee! :D :D :D ---------------------------------------------------

Got back from MCAD a couple of days ago. Wow. Just. Wow. I love it there. I love the school, I love the people I met there, I love the city. I would really like to go to college there. Really, really LOVE to go to college there. I'm gonna have to get working on my portfolio asap! Hope you enjoyed the pictures I took there, the shoot with The Melismatics was really fun. It was awesome working in a professional studio. That reminds me, we went on a little field trip to Alec Soth's studio at one point. How cool!! The man has a freaking cot in his office surrounded by all those gallery crate-things, it looks like a prison bed XD Oy. I can

Kidnappings and Colleges

Kidnappings and Colleges

My 7D was stolen this weekend. Yep, long story short, I left it on a coat/bag check-rack thing during the Crystal Ball at Kalamazoo College on Saturday night because I didn't want to take pictures all night as I originally thought I would. I come back when the night had made its merry, and the poor dear was gone. I didn't have the lens cap on it either. I suck, yes. And now poor Big Brother is probably shivering in the corner of some stupid bimbo's closet waiting to be sold on eBay with no lens cap, USB cable, or battery charger. Though Shelby and I did our best to ask around, look around, put up an ad on the Kzoo College website, and file

Thank god I got a Gaga avatar. If I got an Edward one I would scream. Anywho, my application for the MCAD program was sent in, and hopefully I'll be hearing back from them SOOOOON (except, not really, they'll be sending out results in May BAH). In other news, my artsiness is getting into the realm of ceramics, huge drawings of faces, and collage books. Basically everything new. Hope life is good! Happy spring break WOO. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Etsy - http://mercedesbird.etsy.com MySpace - http://www.myspace.com/artgrlkiki YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/user/artgrlkiki OpenCanvas Downlo

Hopefully I'll be able to send in my application for the MCAD summer program soon, I need to wait for my parents to get done with taxes so I can send in my scholarship application with it. Anxiety and excitement! Woo! Other than that I've been doing a lot in Studio Art, Mr. Burns is having me do some observational drawings before the trimester is over, and at the same time I'm working on this colored pencil bird that is taking forever. I haven't had many opportunities to take photos lately. Hm, I wonder when I'll next be going to Basement 414... --------------------------------------------------------------------- Etsy - http://mercedesb

Another Summer Destination :D

Another Summer Destination :D

I'ma head off to the Summer Expressions Sessions workshop at MCAD in June, this is exciting. It's going to be great because it'd be better to spend a week there and $2000 then find out i'm not interested, instead of deciding to spend four years there and $160,000 only to find out i hate it. Also, it's worth two credits if i go to Minneapolis. You should think about it, there's a number of different workshops like comic art and painting, I'll be in digital photography. Mmmmmmm, the more i think about it, the more excited i get! Here's the website if you're considering: mcad.edu/ses -------------------------------------------------------

Post-Halloween

Post-Halloween

As you might have seen awhile ago I went to University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) for National Portfolio Day yesterday morning. So here's a little review. I was actually scared out of my wits for no good reason. I was wearing my bright pink trench coat and my portfolio was an 8" x 10" scrapbook-turned-gallery; all of the Urban Outfitters-clad high schoolers with their giant portfolios and the representatives all sitting at their tables in a long line was simply intimidating. I also got there about 40 minutes early (10:20) because I had been hoping to get to the informational meeting about UofM's art program (10:00), but as usual I was late. Aft

NPD, UofM, Brickfish, etc.

Heyo, I'm about 60% sure I'll be heading over to National Portfolio Day at UofM in Ann Arbor on Halloween, let me know if you'll be there :) I'd also like some help picking out pieces to include in my portfolio.  Since I'm pretty much undecided as to what I specifically want to major in, I'll include photography, drawings/illustrations, and designs.  You can tell me what your favorites in those categories are, it'd be a tremendous help with everything. I still need to get some observational sketches done, though.  When I do I can upload those, if they're good enough, and I hope they are! And I made it to 47 on Brickfish!  Keep on voting ev
