I may not have everything done this week for my BFA portfolio. Trying to mix the different talismans together is a bit more difficult than I thought it would be. 😑
In truth I wanted to been done with them this week so I can send images of them off for a winter residency I want to apply to. But I think I'll just send a cluster image of them and name them as 'works in progress.'

I have a critique for Bookarts tomorrow. I have the majority of it done, I just need to bind my last stab/wire-bound hybrid.

I had a friend take me to walmart this Thursday and was able to get suede cord (black & brown), a dowel and some wooden caps. Since I'm  limiting the number of talismans and totems I'm going to be using, I thought I'd make a scroll (much like my codices) to actually connect them together. I decided not to add the wells, vessels, mullers, and palette I made. They just don't fit in this go round. But I can still post them somewhere, and use them! They are completely utilitarian. 😊😁

Tuesday is advising day! Which means a free work day for me since I already met with my advisor. 😁

I have a Painting critique on Thursday. These boxes have been a struggle for me. 😔 But I have been working on them here and there, and hopefully I can get them done on Tuesday. Or at least I'm going to be devoting most of my time to them on Tuesday.

I have a photomontage due Wednesday. Not looking forward to that. I really wished I dropped this class. I don't see it being useful. We really haven't learn the specifics of how to take a good pic or what makes a pic good. But that's kind of the dangers of studio classes, they want you to learn by doing but sometimes is helpful when things are explained.😒

But enough ragging. I need to get some sleep.

Much Love,
Hema ❤️

P.s. I did relax and stay in on Saturday. I will not burn myself out (at least not yet).

Sorry for the lack of a journal last week. It completely slipped my mind!🙇😥

This week was my school's fall break and, of course, I spent it working on my portfolio stuff. There was only one day I didn't go to the studio (it was raining and I HATE walking in the rain, i do like looking at it though 😜). I did let myself wake up when I felt like it, so I got quite a bit of rest.

I manage to work a little on my painting project too! Not a lot but I got a good start.

Today, I managed to get all my stuff glazed!!! It only took 10 1/2 hours...😌😒 I am so tired right now!💤 But it's well worth it! I'm on schedule!!😙I just have to get those puppies fired and arrange them.

Please pray for me! 🙏I'm going to need it. 😊

Didn't do much of anything else. I did manage to catch the transit to Walmart to get some stuff. I'm going to have to go back though. The converter box I bought doesn't work. The techs managed to talk me into getting the wrong one. 😒

I posted this months tip yesterday. Forgot about that too until my calendar reminded me. I hope it was helpful. If you have suggestions, don't hesitate to message me.

That's it for now!

Much Love,
Hema😘❤️

Codex by Hemamal
Codex
My first project in Painting 2. The theme was beauty. I love ancient things/artifacts so to connect my three things together I made all of them in codex format. Here is a (left to right): a peach pit necklace, a (made-up) purification ritual, and a game cartridge motherboard.
