Magazine Overload

This is the beast I have been putting my heart and soul into for the past three weeks! It is for my introduction to graphics class and I could not be more happy with the way it turned out. I drew the image on the front cover, and the page with the history and food titles on it. I also did all the typography for the Titles and sub-titles myself! It took a long time but it was worth it. The only thing I am not happy about is the actually title of the magazine. I seriously spent an hour going through different type faces and nothing worked so my professor and I settled on this.

I have had a bit of a love/hate (mostly hate) relationship with this professor. I have not been getting the grades I think I should be getting, making me not a happy camper in that class. However, for this project I was determined to get a good grade. So I went to his office hours to talk to him and spent around 15 to 20 hours on this project alone (the others I spent about 5 to 10, which might be the reason for my poor grades). Nonetheless at the end of my last visit to his office hours he asked me my mayor. When I told him public relations he told me I should switch and be a design major. I don't think I would change my major ever, but I was very very very flattered. Stay tuned for when we get this project back, if I don't get an A or an A- (*knock on wood*) I will probably cry.

Well I have to get more work done, but I promise more blog post this week! Maybe some of my favorite Thanksgiving desert recipes and outfits of course. :)

te amo
