Hello! Hema here (Leslie to my family and classmates), letting you get a sneak peek into my artistic journey.
I'm a continuing student with a BS in Forensic anthropology but my dream is to inspire people through my art and writings.
I still have a ways to go but I would love you 'constructive' input on my art to get me to that point.

Current Residence: NC
Favourite genre of music: Rock, R&B
Favourite style of art: Manga/Illustratiion, Painting
Favourite cartoon character: Storm and Remy, Alucard and Integra, Kurama/Yoko and Yusuke, The Count , Gutts, Sebastian
Personal Quote: Humanity of the Human Hand (Traditional over computers, no offence)

You know, sometimes I wish I had somebody to talk to, hang out with, shout out some ideas. It doesn't matter the gender, not a romantic partner. A companion to help me voice aloud this confounding enigma that is my growing destiny. Then I remember... I don't really like people all that much. 😝😏

It would be great to have a friend though. Seeing everybody else hanging out, having babies and getting married has me feeling some type of way. But, onward and forward!

This week was kind of exhausting. I have no idea why but it has been. Agonizing over the supplies for these class might be a big part of it. I so should have dropped Photography, the supplies are so expensive! 😔 at least at this point. 😌

Still not 100% sure about the teacher for my BFA Portfolio BUT I have came up with some new ideas for pieces! Ceramic stuff, much like my tile experiments. I'll thinking of using a mixture of red and white clay for my projects. I talked with my intro teacher day and he said he teach me how to fire and I can pretty much do it whenever I want after he's taught me. He may even let me use this ash fire glaze that gives the appearance of an open-fire. That would be epic!

I finally sketched the images for my painting 2 class today (pics tomorrow). We have a "working critique" this week and I did want them to have something see beyond 'awesome faux vellum!' Discovering the process took much longer than I thought it would. It also doesn't help I had little idea of what I wanted to do at the beginning. I like how it's going so far! We'll see how well it continued to go. 😏

Bookmaking, not as consuming as I thought it be. I still have quite a bit of stuff to get for it but we have already started making books (to be posted later this week) and our own personalized books now. This project, using the binding we've learned already, we're to make the book tell a story. Of course I've already went overboard, or at least stating to😜! I'm making a journal if a murdered truth seeker. I've already burned the edges, aged the pages, dyed some hemp for the cord, and started to think of the images for the inside. I think I might sand and ink the cover a bit... We'll see...😕I'm already thinking that this could just be a prototype for a real leather bound book I can make in the future. 😁 ***overachiever right here*** 👉😊👈 (if you don't have emojis you have no idea what's going on right now 😱😜.)

I still have to read and write a summary for Development of Modern Art and get ready for a presentation on the 11th. Sigh, fun times.

I'm also thinking of doing another contest. I had 20 people participate last time and if I can get at least that many people interested this time I most likely will. It'll get me to stay longer in my studio. 😁 the light work so far really isn't compelling me yet but I'm working on it.

So, still quite a bit to think about and plan but not enough to stress. Thankfully. 😙

My hiatus will officially be over this week. I'm kinda going to miss the free time. Seriously thinking about make this once a week ( I also have another blog, entertainment, that I post on Mon-Fri). My little computer is getting slow and it doesn't really like scheduling. 😒😔 But it's seen me through a lot so I can't complain.

Well, that's it for now!

Much Love,
