Looking inward

Looking inward - student project

For the first exercise, I chose a song that always uplifts me, "Baba O'Riley" is my work jam.

I did not like the result as much, but for the sake of the exercise, I did not redo it.

For the second exercise, I thought about what was bothering me that day, and I had to add the green in the color palette.

That's the board I like the most, probably because it's so positive and gives me that warm fuzzy feeling.

This was hard to do, being vulnerable is not something we are used to, but I loved the result! It made me reveal things to myself that I would normally ignore.

For the freestyle, I imagined a series where I represent the message I want into a vintage tattoo style.

I loved the class! It gave structure to be creative and not care so much about the end result. And by doing so, I created pieces that I loved :)
