PLUR makes chaos mello

Chaotic There’s something so amazing about concerts. Everyone has the enthusiasm of someone at a sporting event (or more), and you’re all there supporting the same person. I went to see marshmello last night, and it was such an energetic show. I spent the past two days making the helmets, and they were a hit. I…

sweet, sour and a little salty

Tart I could be describing orange chicken, but I think that’s one of the grossest dishes on the face of the earth. Instead, I’m talking about Taylor Swift. She’s been out of the spotlight for the most part, and I commend her for that. After years of incessant touring (but please come back to Atlanta…

command-c

Copycat Of the 8 or so pieces I made for a “design principles” assignment in my AP Photo class, this has been the most successful. I’m honestly surprised, because it was so inspired by Flume’s album cover, but people loved the simplicity and symmetry of it. I scanned an image from a Sotheby’s catalogue, cropped it so…

it’s always ourselves we find in the sea

I’d hardly call myself a fan of poetry- the closest I can get to that length of fiction is short stories, and even those I am particular about. That being said, I appreciate it much more when I receive an in-depth analysis or if I know it’s important to someone. I just remember Taylor Swift using…

#1 in my heart and playlists

I loved making this in Illustrator because of how clean it made the repeating figures. It was much easier on the computer than on mobile Photoshop, which I used to mask out Taylor, recolour, and overlay the backgrounds. This is supposed to scream colour, both figuratively and literally (the lyrics are from Taylor’s most recent single, Out of…
