After a lack of internet in the last weeks, I'm finally back. Seems like it's impossible for the school dorms to have a stable connection, but that's ranting I'll keep for my fellows in class
I will keep my word this time and post some of my art from last semester. Things went smoothly after all, I obtained every good grades on all but one class (the cursed one). One of the final projects was on creating a logo for the university radio in Rimouski, a city between the one I'm currently studying with and my hometown. I still don't get why, but my project has been selected along with 7 others -on a total of 44- as one of the possible choice. I personnaly don't find it would be the best, but then again maybe I've looked at it too much. And graphic designers generally have this bad self-depreciation habit versus their works.
Enough about being sorry for myself. I'd speak about this year's projects, but since this will surely turn my journal into a novel, I'll save it for another day. So instead, let's talk about my kickass holidays since it includes MAGFest. Family reunion was enjoyable as always and it gave me the chance to get more accustomed to my digicam settings. I then visited my godparents for New Year, and met my cousin's newlyfounded family for the first time in 3 years. Her kids are adorable, but the "Why?" phase of her boy was killing me. A few days after, it was finally time for me to take the plane to Virginia for MAGFest. Two words: fucking awesome. I had a great time all weekend even with the severe lack of sleep, met a shitload of people -and barely remember half of people's names, RL and screen/nick- and did I say I had a great time there? Jamspace was a new part they added to the event this year, and it did more than meet expectations. Not only they're bringing it back next year, but they'd like to make it bigger (the scene wasn't big enough for the electronic drum to be set on it). People there gave mini improvised concerts there while there was nothing happening in the Concert room. I visited some panels and other rooms too, played some old school games and met even more people. I also took a bunch of pics you can see here img.photobucket.com/albums/v31…
Not sure if I'll go next year, because a thousand bucks isn't easy to come by. We'll see what happens, but no matter what, I'm definitely going back in the future.
Look at me, it's turning into a novel again, tsk... Anyway, still got some school work to finish, research to do, an oral presentation about a board game we had to do for my english class(lol) and a little side-job I've been able to find. Finally, I'm truly happy to have finally kicked myself in the ass and started working on my colouring skills with my tablet. It's about time I stop being jealous and envious of other people's works and do something to fix that.
