Another month has rolled around and I would like to recap my life as it was, through August 2016.
During August I was pretty busy with study and found the time to design my own WordPress theme. It was something I had been wanting to do for a long time (and was also on my 30 before 30). I also made two prompt websites; Artprompt.xyz and Blogprompt.xyz. It was really wonderful to rekindle my interest in website design. I think my study has actually influenced me, because I am examining a lot of typography and layout spreads. I wanted to have some freedom to create something in my own style.
Speaking of study, I have been getting marks in the 80s and I am continually working hard to try and improve. I have only been getting good feedback, so I am not sure if my teacher is a strict marker or I have really been missing things…
I read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and I liked it. Yes, there are many parts of it that are…. noodle… but it was actually completely different to what I thought it would be. It made me feel like I was revisiting an old friend. Although, maybe in a sense like; I was visiting said friend/s and I had new glasses, and the glasses where I bit too strong, but I knew it was a friend….
I have always been experimenting with traditional art and it has been a challenge. I just need to take it slow and to actually learn how to create and work with certain mediums, instead of expecting to be able to create super amazing artworks without knowing how… I have also been incredibly slack with taking photos and I am hoping throughout September I can find the time to explore and snap.
