1. Digital Art Tutorials

A page I came across while working on an Animation project – trying how to create the “low-poly” look. After taking the Animation studio, I have a new found appreciating for computer arts, especially C4D and After Effects. Honestly, I think that class taught me more than any other class at ISU. I struggled through it and earned an “A” at the end of the semester! Definitely one of my proudest academic moments. I think if you have animation art under your belt, you are set for a career in graphic design.

2. Organizing Finances

I appreciate this article, because it puts in simple terms how to take control of your finances. Although I wish it went more in-depth with each step, it’s a good way to start looking at your finances as something that is under your control. I’m slowly learning how to properly take care of my finances. I don’t want my life to seem in order, but then my finances a mess. Articles such as these are encouraging, but it’s better to get advice from a christian perspective, such as Dave Ramsey. I’m going through this book right now, and it’s very straightforward and challenging. (in a very good way!)

3. Simple Kitchens

The house I live in now is somewhat retro…all you have to do is glance at the floor. It is nice and open but I don’t appreciate the setup or color palette. It’s interesting living with four other ladies – everyone has their own style. Most of my roommates have brightly color dish ware, while my dishes sit in a cabinet, tucked away, with an all-white color palette – just the way I like it. My ideal kitchen would be open, bright, fresh, minimal, and mostly white!

4. Des Moines Art Center

Only near the end of this last semester did I realize that they have fun events! They had a film festival near the middle of March which caught my attention. I haven’t ventured in DSM very much, but I plan to keep my eye on these events next semester so that when I need a break, I can do something fun and different!

5. Sketching

These photos encourage me to sketch much more than I do! My professors would definitely love it!


6. Sustainable Cities Collective

It’s interesting to see what cities all over the world are doing to be sustainable. Taking a look at other projects helps me to understand Design Across Boundaries better and gives me ideas about how to implement sustainability into what we are doing.

7. This site

I actually have no idea how I found this site or what it is, but I like the style of clothing (most of it anyway)!
