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 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)

No truer words have ever been said (pretty sure there has but, meh 😌) Especially, near deadlines! Believe it or not, I love this work! Probably cause I try not to procrastinate anymore. I might be slow/methodical but I don't procrastinate. 😝😌

Woke up extremely late today (5pm) got to the studio at about 8 and worked until 12a in both sculpture and ceramics, came back to my room and worked on a piece till 2a. I have an in-process crit tomorrow in Sculpture. I'm planning on getting there a couple of hours early to finish up. My display is pretty simple (and already setup) so I just have to finish my pieces, which is pretty much just putting two together. The ceramics was just casting and waiting for them to dry. I finally have a base mold for my spheres that works!! And I lucked into some molds that will greatly help with a banquet theme. THEY'RE EGGS!! I wish I knew they existed last semester. They would have been a big help. I really do need to spend a bit more time in ceramics. Because of the molds taking so long to dry and my base mold messing up, I am about a week or so behind. Not a lot but enough. I really want some cool original works for my portfolio.

Bookarts, I'm getting started on my double fan books. I'm doing them along with making some linen paper (my teacher was worried that they were a bit too sculptural). But the most labor intensive part is coming up, forming the pages!! It's going to take a while! I'm still thinking through some things, like how to make them slide out easy, how to keep the pages from warping since it's thin wood, etc. I'm excited and can't wait till they're done! 😁 Pic updates as I go.

Painting, I hung the painting I just finished on Thursday (pics to come) and I worked through the design for the one I've already started. Still haven't decided whether to use ink or umber acrylic but I think I'll get a better grip on it once I have it sketched out.

Finally got that tip written and posted. I hope it was helpful. I think my next will be about finished yourself in your art. I have some funny thoughts to add in it.😁 hopefully I can do it on time. Doubtful, but one can hope😌. If there is any art related topic that you have questions about, feel free to message me. I'll try to answer.😋

Much Love,
