Processing Processing

For the past six weeks, I’ve been enrolled in one of the most challenging classes of my life. In said class, I’ve been learning how to use Processing, a computer programming language in which I’m desperately trying to become a native speaker. However, the rigorous parameters has made it difficult to learn the local slang. (Wow sorry, getting a little carried away with the foreign language comparison.) Some days, when I’m up at 3 in the morning unable to understand why my program isn’t running, it feels like I’m deaf and trying to learn to speak Italian. Every once in a while though, the clouds part and the sun shines down on my keyboard and I make something that I think is pretty nifty. This piece was designed using a function I created that makes the various shapes in the composition move around the screen at random. 



Candy QueenOh hey there, sorry I’ve been out. Since March, I’ve been busy with fun end of high school activities, like my prom and speaking at my graduation, and other getting my act together and taking it on the road events. But after some vacation time in Mexico, Los Angeles, and New York, I got back into using my favorite medium for a typeface project, candy. Because seriously, who doesn’t love candy? The only downside to this medium was the melting in the sun factor, but other than that working in M&Ms was super fun and of course colorful.

I also really liked this subtly brilliant quote from Katy Perry, I actually related to it very well. Probably because I also know that one day, some of the cutesy stuff I rely on in both my personal and creative life can’t be the main focus if I want to be more serious. Still, I think it’s important to always be a little whimsical.

A brief photo tour about my room, where bright colors and tiny objects run amuck. I’ll probably post more about the place I spend 70% of my time later.

Stellar Aspirations

What humans and what stars are made of aren’t very different. I also made this piece as an answer to the eternal suggestion to “take a deep breath.” I used watercolor and Photoshop to create the finished product.
