Illustration and Design at Dawson College

A study of different styles of line work for my Materials 1 2D class....me in many different universes....


I started the Illustration and Design Program at Dawson this year! I figured this would give me a chance to learn somethings I didn'T already know and polish up some of the things I do know and maybe learn some suprising new things on the way. So far I've really been enjoying the program and I think all of the above things have already happened and will continue to do so. The really great thing about being at school is that it's allowed me to explore other ways of working that I either wouldn't have had time to do in the past, or maybe wouldn't have thought to do; like exporing making patterens and texture with tape for instance. Learning Photoshop has been both rewarding and very challenging so far as I've never worked with it until this year and everything is pretty new to me. Slowly but surely though I can see that I'm retaining more and more of the things I need to know....maybe someday i'll even be really good at it.
Being a student again generally has been a learning curve in it's own right as it's been quite a long time since I studied and went to school. My brain is adapting as am I with a lifestyle that has done a full 180 from being work oriented to having learning become my job in an institution I used to work for as a life model. Its both familiar and new at the same time.
