FYP - My Life is like a Rollercoaster

September 19 - September 25
Hit a pothole, in that I lost my sculptor for my character maquettes. Le boo. After spending Sunday night in a frantic state, and Monday in a livid state, I had a talk with one of my best friends and the Go-To guy in my inner circle. Rather that sculpt clay maquettes, he suggested I go a different route with materials I could handle - like paper. I felt a lot better after speaking with him, and 100% back to normal after I did some research on the net that very night. I found a blog entry featuring the work of a number of super talented paper artists: Masters of Paper Art and Paper Sculptures

FYP - Research, Research and More Research

A key part of this project is research - this post will cover my progress in researching children's book illustrating and writing, and in shopping around for excellent local printers/graphics firms.

FYP - It's Back to Lab Again!

One thing that life throws at you, maybe to test you or to shake you up...perhaps even to be a right bastard, are set-backs. They vary in size, but set-backs are usually occurrences that make you stop, reassess and then progress with a more learned view point about getting from Point A to Point B.

I had such a bitch-slap wake-up call set back just this morning, in my first consultation for my senior project. ^^;

As it turned out, my target group for my project and the project itself weren't compatible. And since this is something I desire to publish at some point, missing the target market completely is as wrong as wrong can get. In short, I have quite a great deal of research ahead of me in order to get this thing done right.

Wish me luck, people! (Post illustrations to follow. School's scanner's too danged far.)
