Second post!

I had hoped to update before this, but every time I opened a new post I could never think of what to write.  I need to get things down, though, so I am making myself write.   I’m on track to finish everything by tomorrow..though I had hoped to finish things sooner.  I’m not going to sleep tonight..went out and bought masses of energy drinks to keep me up, though they make my heart spazz out about three times as much.  I was tempted to ask to have my due date moved to Monday, but I didn’t want to.  I can’t let this get in the way of everything even more than it already has.

In any case, I have just finished everything about my reportage project.  I got a small little 4″ by 2″ sketchbook and filled in all the pages with at least one ink sketch per half hour between 7.00 pm till 2.30 pm Tuesday, Nov. 3rd.  It came out pretty nice.  I need to finish the Narrative project and finish typing up the paper for tomorrow.  Then I just need to finish my sketchbook and by then it should be time for me to walk into University.  Yay!  At least I’ll have the weekend to rest and finish my paper for Tuesday.

I experimented yesterday with Acrylic Inks.  I am going to end up buying some more..I loved the intensity of the colours and the versatility.  I hope to learn how to use them soon.

The caffeine is affecting my heart badly.  Unsurprisingly, though.  This is what I get for slacking, though.  I hope that for the next Unit I stay on top of everything, including this blog/journal thing.

There’s not much else to say…I hope to scan in my works tomorrow (not all the Reportage ones) and then hopefully my next post will have those pieces in it.  I think the next thing for me to do would be for me to do show some more artist work.  I’ll be posting some things more relating to greek mythology this time.  Specifically, the Narcissus and Echo myth that I am illustrating.

Welcome to the Chaos that is my Blog.

Hello there!  How are you?  I hope you’re well, because I have no idea what you just responded with.

In any case, this is a blog created for the sole purpose of documenting my progress and learning of new art techniques for school.  If you have stumbled across this page hoping for interesting things, I apologize.  This is more than likely not the place to be.  I do not write much, and I’m sorry if some of my writing seems awkward and/or pedantic.

Now, for my University professors, my name is Nikki Serra, I am in the 1st year of Illustration, and I am very sorry for not starting this blog sooner.  I have a problem with documenting my progress, I always have, I always will.  I was never one of those little girls that kept a journal in which they gushed over their crushes in.  I was horrible about taking notes in class, still am.  I will start doing so and then I will begin doodling in the corner.  That doodle would soon take over my page and have my full attention.  That might be one of the reasons I am taking Illustration.

I do hope to keep this journal up, though.  It would be very nice to be able to actually do everything that is expected of me.
