Sorry!

I made a promise last year to create this blog and to update it with my works, doodles, sketches, and thoughts. I have clearly broken that promise to myself because I haven’t updated this since last year. Ahhh, I apologize and I have found new motivation to actually use my blog mostly because I am studying abroad winter semester of 2014-2015 and I want a place to document my adventures! I don’t want to be one of those people who create a whole new blog just for the whole shaabang and I think it’s not necessary.

TLDR; I swear I will start updating this blog.

I guess in some ways it was a good sign I didn’t have a chance to update this blog because I have been busy with life and such. This summer has really propelled me to believe the infamous cliché that everything truly happens for a reason. This summer came like a whirlwind. I worked at University of Michigan Auxiliary Marketing & Communications as a graphic designer 2 days a week and then the other 3 days of the week I was a creative intern at the creative marketing agency Re:group which was located downtown. On top of that, I helped rebrand a student-run food publication called Wolverine Cuizine and had duties as designer of SHEI Magazine and member of the PR committee for CKI. Also I branded myself and redesigned my resume. So I guess I had somewhat good reasons for not being able to devote more time to this blog.

It’s crazy how time flies because I swore just yesterday I was back in Jersey binging on Netflix for a week. This has been an adventurous and yet extremely productive summer. I can’t believe school is starting so soon.

xoxo, bng

Drawing, Fall 2012

This was my first time using india ink. 
Another extremely challenging drawing that I had to do. At the beginning of this drawing, I had no idea what I was going to do because of the size of the paper and because I never used india ink before. For once my professor allowed us to create a more abstract drawing. We had to use references of nature, an image from inside the studio,  and an image directly outside the studio. The night before the drawing was due, I was finishing up the last few strokes of my piece when india ink drips into my detailed drawing. I was extremely upset to say the least, but after talking to one of my professors, he told me that these things happen all the time and that it could be a happy accident. Through this drawing, I realized that things won’t always go as you plan and accidents will happen, but you don’t have to let one accident ruin your work of art. How you view any situation can change it completely.

Public Art, Fall 2012

Framing public spaces. 
Unexpected inspiration from public, yet at the same time, private spaces.
