For my fiber class I have to make an embroidery portrait of someone. My initial idea was Roy Halladay but I'm worried that would be kind of silly and that after baseball season ends I wouldn't be as excited about it. I also kind of want to go some famous historical woman but I don't know who yet. I've definitely decided to do someone famous though rather than someone I know. An embroidery's a lot of work and I'd feel weirder making it more personal than not.
I'm also really enjoying my photo class. I'm kind of surprised at how much. I took the class because it fulfills a requirement and a printmaking teacher recommended the majors take photo, so I wasn't really expecting much more than a fun and somewhat interesting basic class. But every time I take photos I find it super exciting and (usually) when I make prints of them I get really into it. I don't think I could ever be a photo major because I'd miss being able to draw and design and have a little more creative license in my work, but I would like to take more classes and I could definitely see myself using photo techniques in my printmaking.
Anyway. There's my update on school if anyone cares to read it. Mostly I just needed a place to put these thoughts because I feel boring when I actually say them to people. Also Halloween and the Rally for Sanity/March to Keep Fear Alive are coming up. I don't know what I'm doing for Halloween but hopefully something fun.
