This week, I almost finished my name piece. I think that what I have so far is a very strong piece, however I feel like I need to do something more before I can call the piece completed. Yesterday, I began a new piece, in which I will creatively combine two things into one image, and I'm contemplating doing something meta with my face and Post-it notes, but we'll see what happens with that.

This week, I continued work on my name piece, and I have completly rethought it, and I'm very happy with how it is piecing together. I have used the mixer brush exclusively for this piece so far. The inspiration for this piece struck almost immeaditly after my previous blog post, and I'm so enthusiastic about this piece that I've used a lot of free periods/ lunch/ breaks to work on it. I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

This week, we were assigned to do a project that reflects on the meaning of our name, in one way or another. Apparently my last name means spear, my middle name, Wade, means traveller, and my first name, Richard, means brave ruler. However, I prefer the urban dictionary definition, which includes, among other glowing remarks, the most amazing guy ever, the nicest guy ever, and the super attractive male who every girl dreams of. I find all of these to be relevant, so I may incorporate some of this into my project. At this point, I'm still in the planning phase, but I did make a very cool monogrammed spear in Photoshop!
