“You ready Steve!?!... Uh huh... Andy!?!... Yeah... Nick!?!... Okay... Alright fellas.... LETS GOOOOO!!!”

“Ballroom Blitz” by Sweet

Line 1

First I found an energetic song to use for my line. Then when I created this long, curvy line, I started messing around with the stroke and things. In the end, I was happy.


I had to think of a shape or object to make to reflect. I like tanks, and tanks have symmetry. So, I made the images and reflected them over.

Shape 2


Pattern/ Tessellations 3

I didn’t have any pre-planned ideas for the tessellations. I decided to just go crazy with all the shapes. After reflecting many shapes and stuff, it ended up looking exactly how I wanted it to... crazy.


This was a pretty simple project. It wasn’t easy but it was simple. After a short, annoying process, I got a wheel of may colors.

Color 4


Mandalas 5

This was one of my favorite projects. The complexity or simplicity is completely up to the “artist�. I after many colors and shapes were used, I ended up with pure insanity.


I got the inspiration for my charater from the video game called Little Big Planet. I really liked how creative you could be with your little person. I feel like my two inch tall ragdoll warrior came along nicely.

Character 6


Typography Poster 7

This project took me the longest out of them all. I got the idea for it from the World War II Soviet propoganda posters. After working for a painfully long time, I got a poster that I was proud of.


The logo project was my favorite. I really liked how the logo you make could be very simple, clean, and modern or colorful, crazy, and childish. After cutting up and connecting some letters, I got this handsome logo.

Photo Essay Collage 9

This was supposed to be my collage but I couldn’t find that. Instead, I had to used the unfinished version. This was the project I didn’t like the most, because I just didn’t feel like I had the same amount of freedom to make art.


Composite Collage Poster 10

This project I liked much more. In this, I showed the transition that Beverly Hills made from old to the modern. After adding and bluring the edges of the photos, I made something that the city would be proud of.


Self Portrait 11

This project wasn’t very difficult for me. All I had to do was to paint over my face. It was a bit awkward to use the eyedropper for various things. I am happy with how I came out.
