Been a while! Lots of changes have been going on since school let out...but I'm finally bringing it all back together!!! And I have plans lol...hopefully now I can get back to keeping up with everyone...one of the things I've really missed over the past few months has been not only doing more art but seeing everyone else in action for inspiration...

I spend a lot of time teaching the students about the art of refinement. This year I helped students follow the creative process to design templates to redraw in Illustrator. They often had good core ideas but weren't seasoned enough to really see what I was pushing them to...I get excited when I see the base potential there but the struggle is to get them to realize what they have. It was also their first Illustrator attempt and the tools can be clumsy until you get used to them. So after the students finished I took several templates to show them how just little tweaks here and there can make a world of difference. Too often they are satisfied with very 'raw' work. The purpose of this wasn't to embarrass the students but really an attempt to say 'you have it...now you just have to polish it!"
