Cuckoo Clock Progress

Here's where I'm at with my first Make Art That Sells project-a cuckoo clock phone case!
I ended up choosing my castle clock for the final project and went with a palette I don't normally use to try and flex some color muscles. Still have a ways to go to finish it up but am having a great time with this assignment. Who knew I could make amends with purple, my color nemesis?!

Cuckoo Round Two

More cuckoo sketches for the February Make Art That Sells Bootcamp mini assignment! In my last batch of sketches I tried to keep my doodling loose and explore some different media and mark making. With this round I had a theme and story in mind for each clock. For the first one I was thinking of a love story/musical/alps motif. Like Sound of Music, but with less nuns. The second revolves around a story of a Bavarian pretzel factory, run by a short tempered but benevolent cuckoo bird foreman. The clock on the far right is the clock I would've wanted as a kid...and still sort of want today. Looking forward to the main assignment-can't wait to see what other people come up with!

Bootcamp Kicks Off!

You guys I'm doing so many burpees. And just ran up the stairs of the Harvard Coliseum like, 800 times. Easily.* I also enrolled in Lilla Rogers "Make Art That Sells" Bootcamp! I'd been looking to add some new energy to my portfolio and push myself creatively with a group and MATS seemed like perfect match. The class kicked off this week with our first mini assignment-cuckoo clocks! I am so excited to be part of such a talented community and this week have been happily exploring the world of folk art, clocks, woodland creatures and pretzels. I feel stronger and more toned than I have in weeks and I didn't even have to pick up a kettlebell once.

*No I didn't. It's just that bootcamp makes me think of crossfit. Which makes me want to lie on the floor.
