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!

New Semester, New Post

Hi everyone! I was on somewhat of a hiatus this summer which wasn’t necessarily intentional. This blog mostly functions as a kind of school blog but I usually try to make posts even when I’m not in school because I like sharing things with you guys. This summer I was pretty busy, I was working a lot and when I wasn’t working I was trying to enjoy the summer with my leftover time. That being said I really didn’t do much on the artsy side or writing side for that matter either. However, I wasn’t gone, I’ve been trying to go on Twitter more often and try to make a somewhat interesting tweet. By the way if you haven’t followed me on Twitter please feel free to do so @melfranco17 and send me a message or two!

My goals for this semester are to start working on ways to develop my style more and expand my portfolio. At this point I’m not completely worried about my portfolio but I definitely think I need to start focusing on it more. What I had a hard time on during the summer was coming with projects to create. I really wanted to do simple projects so that I could have a couple of small items instead of a larger project since I was low on time. I guess the good thing about school is that time is more balanced and scheduled, at least for me. I’d like to keep doing mini projects along the way not only for fun but so hopefully something will come from them. I’m thinking more like postcards, posters for events, even maybe some promotional-like items, who knows! Also, I promise to have much more interesting posts with pretty pictures soon! Until next time guys!

New Year, New Semester!

Hi everyone! I’ve started another semester of school so that means more consistent blogging, yay! I was pretty busy over break, more than I wanted to be, so I kind of took a break from blogging for awhile. I’ve been back at school for two weeks now so a post is going to go up very soon! I just wanted to let you guys know what I’ve been up to and why I disappeared for a little while. I’ve already started so interesting projects so I’ll be sharing my process on some of these with you guys so you can kind of see the things I’ve been doing! Thats all for now but see you guys soon!

Back to School!

Hey everyone! I know things were really slow on here during the summer but I really wanted to focus on my artwork and more specifically my drawing. I just wanted to let you know since a new school year has started I’ll be posting more frequently on here! Yay! So I hope you look forward to that and there will be some changes on here that will be different from what I was doing before. I really want to personalize this blog more so I hope to add more of my school projects on here and other stuff I’m doing as well! That’s all for now but I hope you’re looking forward to this year as much as I am! See you in my next post!
