Where I’ve been & Where I’m going!

Hey everyone! Despite the title, no I’m not taking a trip of some sort, unfortunately. I know I haven’t made a post in a while and I kind of wanted to give you guys a brief update on what’s going on with me right now. If you follow me on Twitter you probably know that I have been around and I’ve been a bit busy with the new semester starting. That being said this is my second to LAST semester so things are really starting to get crazy already. I am going to have a two portfolio reviews soon as well as a public reading within the next couple months.

If you guys need a refresher, I am a Graphic Design and Writing double major so I have plenty of work right now. I feel like I’ve committed pretty fairly to this blog so I really want to continue it and maintain it despite everything else on my many plates. So…that’s exactly what I’m going to do! I can’t promise when or how many posts you’ll get but they will happen, that I can definitely promise. If you guys get lonely and start to miss me feel free to visit my Twitter page @melfranco17, where I am on there daily! I also try to incorporate articles and other art and writing sources on there so if the idea of reading tweets on the life of a college girl don’t interest you, don’t worry, it’s not all about me.

So yes, I will have two major events in my infancy as a professional coming up soon! I’m planning on putting some of my process and projects on here so look out for those as well. I think I covered everything I wanted to say and I just want to thank you guys for your constant support by reading this blog. Blogging is no longer required for my classes so right now it’s something I am choosing to do and you guys give me the push to do it simply by visiting. I recently had my four-year anniversary with WordPress, which I can’t even believe, and I’m amazed at this blog and what its accomplished. I never expected anyone to read what I was posting since it was just a class requirement and I was so new to the blogging world. Since I started I learned to love blogging and not just because of the writing aspect but also because of all of the people I’ve been able to interact with. This blog continues to amaze me and it is something that I want to continuing doing for a long time. So thank you guys, and here’s to a new semester of blogging! Until next time!

Final Project, Finally!

Hey everyone! Well its the end of the semester, which means finals! I had all of my finals this week and I wanted to post an update of what my end result was for my project. Overall I’m really happy with how this turned out and I’d like to do more over break and in the future. I felt like I really learned a lot of new things in this class and I know I’ll learn more by just working with the programs over break. Like I said I think this is my favorite final of the semester, I just think it really represents Grace Kelly very well if I say so myself! Below are my digital finals!
