"It only goes to show, that though life's pleasures are few...

I have a week off of classes, which is filled with working ridiculous amounts of hours at my part-time job back home, knitting, working on commissions, planning out my next moves, and of course enjoying good ol' Utica with my friends and crazy Italian-American family.

So I figured, hey, lets blog on the only morning I have off from work! haha

This week I plan on knitting a couple new hats to post on RetroSorrento, and finally figure out my website. I'm actually really excited to be attacking Dreamweaver, it's a lot of fun, but I know I can go overboard.

So here are some of the things that finished up my last fall semester at RIT:

This is the final image for my hot sauce label for my illustrative design course. I loved the way it looked on the bottle (image coming soon, as my professor has the bottle), although I'd like to go back in and define some of the illustration a little more for a portfolio piece.

This, also for my Illustrative Design class, is my magazine layout. I really like the way this one turned out, especially printed. It was a real pain to scan the illustration though.

And finally...

These are horrible images, but they are all I have and the only proof I have that I've finished this piece, since I'm 2.5 hours away from it. The bottom background is a bit warmer, a deeper red-blue, but I think you can get the drift. I absolutely love this, and it feels so good to have a piece I'm proud of after struggleing with what I wanted to show for so long.

I guess that's it.
