The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.
So some of you have expressed interest in how my Graphic Design course is going so each week I will post a pic here of what I have done or I am currently working on. 🙂 Here is my first masterpiece…lol. He had us try and draw some trees in some squares and walked us through how to do it and use the paint brush mode…yeah very interesting….lol. So you can’t see it but my leave are green, yellow and orange, as I was going for a fall color feel…lol. It’s horrible but not as bad as some of the others I seen…so I don’t feel bad…lol.
Last half of Wednesday he was teaching us to use the pen tool to draw icons. Yeah, the pen tool is the devil!!! If I can make something decent enough to snap a picture I will but he had us trying to make fluffy clouds and funky looking birds (from Pinterest pics, he loves pinterest…lol) and well mine didn’t look nothing like what they were supposed too, I couldn’t figure it out and I was getting very frustrated!! 🙁 I am determined and he is nice about it so that is good.
Monday we start our first actual project of making animal logos from shapes, etc…little nervous…lol. I will be going in early and staying after class to practice this week. 🙂
Other than that not much going on here. The weather hasn’t been real cold but it’s letting us know that it’s still winter as the nights are in the 20’s again…blah.

Books read last week
- The River at Night – First half was a bit dullsville and the second have was a wild ride of weirdness. It was okay but not great.
- Murder, Madness and Love – A bit long, but a lot of twist. Overall it wasn’t bad.
- Pirate – Good start to a series about a space pirate. Not huge on sci-fi types but it’s Eva Langlais so I had too, it’s my first alien type romance. 🙂
- The Last of August – So disappointed in this one, I feel a rant coming on! 🙁
Put on hold
Trying to decide if I am going to finish it or DNF it.
- Beheld– is a bit draggy though I think it’s more me than anything, for some reason nothing is really catching me right now. 🙁
- Father of Lies – I just started so no opinion.
