WEEK #12 ACTIVITY

Algorithmic art is simply known as computer-generated art. So in other words- a lot of Photoshop is used in this type of art. Now-I LOVE Photoshop, my dad is one of the lead graphics designer for Apple of Irvine. ❤(ˆ‿ˆԅ) I grew up with Photoshop in my life, and so I have a few tricks up my sleeve.

I am a water type of person, so the thought of bubbles fascinates me! But as bubbles to the world may be all clear, white, and blue, I thought to switch it up with black, red, and a hint of yellow. I used the circle tool, magic wand, gradients, and many many layers upon layers in photoshop to create this. (❛‿❛✿̶̥̥)

Please enjoy! ≧✯◡✯≦

WEEK #12 ARTIST INTERVIEW

≧◠ᴥ◠≦ CATS ≧◠ᴥ◠≦ CATS ≧◠ᴥ◠≦ CATS ≧◠ᴥ◠≦ 

I just could not STOP BEING SO IN LOVE with Ashley Sharpe’s gallery!

Four cats are better than three ➳♥

Four cats are better than three ➳♥

Sharpe would identify her art as more modern day pop culture, obviously with cats, but with a bigger meaning: Ashley finds fluffy little animals- cats and dogs alike- to be very comforting. Because Sharpe moved to California to pursue her art degree (she was born into a family heavily influenced in the arts) she found her art side in cats when she moved in with her roommate who owned a ROOM FULL of CATS! (I forgot to ask if Ashely has any cats of her own.)

With her childhood, Ashley got her art influence with her family, especially her dad and grandmother. She told us that her first official art class was oil painting and that the only trouble she got in at school was drawing instead of paying attention in class.

Ashely will continue her art passion with printmaking at CSULB.

WEEK #10 ACTIVITY

≧◠ᴥ◠≦ STUDENTS CHOICE ≧◠ᴥ◠≦

For this Spring Break of the year 2016, I went on a little trip with my cousins to San Francisco. I really love this city and how lively it is along with the BEST FOOD EVER in its very own Chinatown. 

To bring back and go on memory lane, I actually went to San Francisco for the first time ever with my bested friend Kevin. We were on a science trip with our 5ht grade class and Kevin knew it was my first time every out without my family with me, so he- as a responsible best friend and big brother- he guided me and protected me from this that were bad (in example- not going to shady neighborhoods) and our friendship lasted from there.

Anyway, I will always look forward to going to San Francisco anytime of the year ! (👍≖‿‿≖)👍 👍(≖‿‿≖👍)

I took all of these with my iPhone! ᕙ(`▿´)ᕗ

WEEK #10 ARTIST INTERVIEW

I like to call these colorful dreads.

I like to call these colorful dreads.

Dawn Ertl  says her art pieces are her interpretations of the world and that the weaving installments shows “the relationships between the people who are very industrialized and the other people surrounding them” says my bae Beatriz.

(⊙.⊙(☉̃ₒ☉)⊙.⊙) To be completely honest, I walked into her gallery with NO IDEA what her art means, and I am sitting her now STILL not able to comprehend it, but after asking Dawn, she gave me a few answers, such as: she is particularly really interested in the current political and environmental issues in the United States, and also she strongly advises to think about what we have and what we waste on what we have- which is seen in the piece she pointed out given that it was made up of plastic bags and wastes. ✍(◔◡◔)

WEEK #9 ARTIST INTERVIEW

Ralph Acosta has had one of the most emotional art pieces I have ever came across.

When asked about why he decided to make huge poster of different residencies in the Los Angeles county, Acosta revealed that those were the places he and his family moved in the times of hardships and turmoil (as he said it to be). He thought that each place had a big part in his life, because through the struggle he and his family (and some cousins) were still happy and had many good times. Ralph’s overall message was that he encourages us to cherish our family moments together and have a family first sort of life.

WEEK #9 ACTIVITY

Dear Glenn, as a moment of truth, I must say that before going into pre-medical I dreamed about being an interior designer, mostly because of how my mom would put on HGTV all day! Plus I enjoy making a stylish and comfortable home (っ^▿^)۶🍸🌟🍺٩(˘◡˘ ) 

For the building I designed- or RE-desgined, I chose the USU. This wasn’t because of the time ASI wanted to remodel the USU, but because whenever I go to the USU I think its tragic, the interior designing. So what here is the remodeled USU created with the Home Design 3D app:

Sticks Lounge

Sticks Lounge

The Sticks Lounge is the place where students can rent video games and play on the XBOX, PS3, or PS4. Its a gamers heaven at college when they can’t be at in the comfort of their own home to play video games. I added a few other things to the Sticks Lounge: foosball table, drum set, and hanging lamps that give the Sticks Lounge a more “man cave” room.

USU Hallway

USU Hallway

The USU Hallway is the connector of the rooms. So I wanted to make it look classy basic. There were originally some small round tables and light wooden chairs, but to replace that I made some dark oak wood as tables and add some black bar stools to add to a classier hallway.

USU Lobby

USU Lobby

The USU lobby would be the living room of a house. There were orignally TV’s in the Lobby but I added two 55″ TVs because I don’t think the people at the USU realize that the TVs are that small. To go with the dark wood floors I added some white furniture and a light green to have the room balance out colors and make it look as homey as possible with some stands with vases and flowers.

USU Lounge

USU Lounge

I hang out in the lounge a lot with my boyfriend, so I spent a lot more time to design this room. I stuck to the white furniture for this room because white furniture just looks good okay. A lounge- to me- should be relaxing and calm, so I chose a pearl and green wallpaper to surround the room, along with a piano to whoever might want to play some music for us. The lounge originally connected to the Sticks Lounge, and I kept it that way.

I should’ve posted this on time… its so pretty… (╥︣﹏᷅╥) 

Thank you for reading Glenn! ٩(˘◡˘)۶
