First week back?

My inspiration, folks.

I really liked this magazine layout. It was from the IIDA 'perspective' magazine Winter 2009 edition. I liked how well it represented my first week back. For those who don't know...our assignment this week was to find a magazine layout and recreate it somehow, representing our first week back at school. So I decided to pile up all of my events, to show my chaotic week, and how I've had to do things from 'a new angle'.

New semester. New sketchbook.

As our first sketchbook assignment, we were instructed to go in our rooms/studio and find 5 objects that have meaning to us and to draw them, using pen and one colored pencil. On the left page, I drew the things that were more or less ritualized to me. Like my medicine container and my room number. My medicine container holds my Topamax, which keeps the migraines away, and the room number is my's where I always end up. But the things on the right are the things I take pride in, and the things that mean the most to me. Like my religion, my bible. Or my ADPi, my sorority, my best friends. Or my love and my memories. These are the things that I can't always explain, but I'll cherish for the rest of my life.
