P is for Patterns and H is for Hunger...

I'm very bad at studying...


and I am hungry...



but here are some patterns I made a year ago when I was learning Illustrator of...


1. octopuses




2. friendly monsters




3. hexagons with killer smiles :D




4.Go on..zoom in! :) It's actually a pattern of a chopped up night scene! (But WAIT! Not too close...there's some imperfections.)


I think half of them were for my summer class project (Studio Art 65A) and the others were for fun.



Oh! Did I ever mention that these patterns tessellates too?


Peace out yo! :D

FREEEEDOM!!!

After two weeks of two final projects, two final exams, and a final paper...


*inhales air*



ahh! The smell of FREEDOM smells like the sweet, spicy sizzling kung pao chicken at Panda Express over a big firing wok...

...and *exhales air*


No matter the papers due, the mathematical proofs to remember, the drawings and ideas to come up with ... always remember what the Great Jason Mraz several times sang...





So remember...




....and have a wonderful and lovely summer...


..climbing trees! :D

Close up...




Oh my. This took 15 hours more than I thought it would take. This class was honestly challenging for me. It was my first drawing class I have taken and maybe the last. (I'm not sure it I want to take the Intermediate level.)But it was actually a good thing that I took this class because I feel like I improved a lot better compared to when I first day.



Looking at my work at a distance...doesn't the gameboy looks like its melting or glumping down? :D (yikes!)




back to studing for finals week.
2 more finals to go and 1 final paper.
