Well, the semester is, at any rate. And it went quite well, I must say...once I settled in. Coming from a science background and most recently a university, an art program at a tech college was a bit of a change. While I may not be any more or less in touch with my creative side, I'm certainly more in touch with my ADHD side. Having some actual time management skills from the real world turned out to be my saving grace because with graphic design work comes a whole slew of logistical nightmares from broken DLLs and plug-in mismatches, a lack of lab hours, color correction fiascoes, winter driving conditions, cloud storage fail, thumb drives in the wash--breathe!--to idiots at the bargain print shop.
By the way, CopyMax: I love you with all of my being. You are full of win.
I have a few new pieces up on my portfolio in the School Projects gallery, and there will be some more to come once I get photos from my instructors. Especially since I hear it's rare, I'm very happy to have something to show for my first semester other than "A"s (not that I'm complaining about that!).
In other happy news, I managed to secure a freelance job for AMATYC, the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges, designing their quarterly journal. I seem to be the only graphic designer who thinks this is choice fun. Well, their loss. Hooray, math!
Merry Yule and all that.
