school of media arts and design


Hi Tumblr! Long time no see!

I’m excited to share the product of my absence!  For the past year, my thesis partner and good friend Esteban Bravo and I have been developing a computer animated short film, “In a Heartbeat,” for our senior thesis project at Ringling College of Art + Design. We are launching this Kickstarter to help cover the costs of hiring a professional composer and sound designer for our film!

“In a Heartbeat” follows an insecure middle school boy who has yet to come to terms with his sexuality. When he crosses paths with the most popular boy in school, his heart pops out of his chest to go after the boy of his dreams. Please visit the Kickstarter page for more development, information, and production artwork on the project!

We are currently mid-production, about to wrap on animation and begin lighting, rendering, and compositing the film, but we need YOUR help to make this film the best that it can be!  Any contribution helps, be it a donation or simply sharing the video and spreading the word!

THANK YOU SO MUCH! This film has been a true labor of love for us both and I am so excited to share the finished film with you this Spring!

Our uni has a bookbinding workshop, so I’ve saved up all my scraps and learnt how to bind them into pocket-sized notebooks. Perfect for writing down observations at art shows! I might try to befriend someone from the letterpress department to get these monogrammed.

anonymous asked:

Omg what are you going to school for?

I major in Entertainment and Arts Marketing and Management! It’s a custom major I made at my school where I take marketing, film/tv, theatre, etc. classes! I’ve taken courses in graphic design, video production, social media, the business behind film, screenwriting, theatre business, ad design… All that sort of stuff! 

Quickie Hiatus

[I really just need some time for myself away from most social media so I can focus on improving + learning things relevant to my career path, since that’s what I took time off school to do in the first place.  I’ve just been feeling really incompetent lately so I figure the only thing to do is improve. I’ll only be active on @studychu​ for the rest of January.

Currently I’m:
-Working on the artwork for a game called Ember Regalia
-Taking my first real art class at the local community college
-Taking game design and 3D modeling classes online
-Really needing to get back on Japanese
…And I still need to make use of my Adobe subscription since I’ve been paying for it for months and barely touched it.

slowly slinks out see u in february


Appropriate Practitioner: Barbara Kruger

Kruger is an American conceptual artist who developed interests in poetry, writing and graphic design. After study at Parsons School of Design, her work landed her jobs as a graphic designer, art director, and picture editor at Condé Nast, Mademoiselle Magazine, and Aperture magazine. By 1979, Kruger began using found imagery in American print –media sources. The type would be collaged directly on top. These early collage pieces would explore political, social, feminism within religion, racial and gender stereotypes, greed and consumerism. Through these themes she developed a style using large -scaled, cropped, black- and- white photographic images. The images would juxtapose with the printed, white Futura Bold typeface against a bold red box. This would be the most notable feature of her work, as it would draw the most attention.

‘Who Does She Think She Is?’ piece uses the typical red, irregular box and white type, alongside a white box with red and black type. This breaks up the statement for the viewer. The ‘who’ is emphasised heavily through the red colour. The image in the background shows a woman’s eyes in focus and centred. The eyes draw the attention of the viewer as they look straight at them. The top and bottom sections of the sections are blurred. This allows the type and boxes to stand out making them easier to read. The red frame boldly highlights the other boxes within the poster as well as the bold type. The slanted, layered boxes help break up the type so that certain words come to the viewers’ attention more than others. The image helps reflect the statement about woman and their identities.

The way in which she presents her typeface allows the messages to get across to the audience as well as the red to instantly catch your eye. I think this could be potentially be used within my booklet as I want my sarcastic titles to stand out. 

A progress shot of my afrofuturist muse, Chali, without her usual uniform. Grad school has been sapping my life in these last few weeks with a mountain of reading. So, I’m pretty happy to snatch a few hours for myself to work on my art and personal writing.

Schools suck
  • School: STEM fields are the only things that matter! Arts? What are those? We don't need them. STEM jobs will guarantee you success
  • School: *is still based on a supremely outdated model of teaching and education for an era long gone*
  • Society: *has STEM graduates unemployed or working at Fast Food jobs to make a living*
  • Society: *Pays for music, art, & design for advertising, television, radio, and other media that is a consistent part of our lives*
  • Skilled Artists: *use their skills to make a living and as a positive means of discipline and maintaining mental health*
  • Skilled Artists: *are always complimented on their skills by strangers*
  • Skilled Artists: *Help illustrate complex STEM concepts and help future STEM hopefuls grasp said concepts with visual means*
  • Skilled Artists: *make songs and performances of complex STEM concepts to help STEM hopefuls memorize important concepts*
  • History: *Literally mostly documents the most memorable moments in history with art, photography, music, theater, and other important artistic media*
  • Schools: Yup, the arts are useless, cut their funding! Artists won't be successful!

Today I’m trying something new: putting text faces under a microscope.

Rudolph Ruzicka was born in Bohemia in 1883 and in 1894 his family immigrated to Chicago. Young Rudolph spent three years while working as an apprentice wood engraver (1897–1900) while attending night classes at the Art Institute of Chicago and weekend classes at Hull House. In 1903 Ruzicka moved to New York City to work for the American Banknote Engraving Company. He continued night school at the New York School of Art. The Calkins & Holden advertising agency hired Ruzicka in 1906. In 1910 he went solo and started his own engraving and printing studio. As a freelancer his work included illustrations, advertising, book jackets and layouts, and engraving in at least four media.

Fairfield was commissioned by C. H. Griffith of Mergenthaler Linotype as a replacement for Century Schoolbook. From 1935 to 1940 Ruzicka designed the Fairfield and Fairfield italic. Fairfield Light was released in 1940 and expanded with medium and medium italic fonts in 1949.


Hello Hello, Property / Shirou here doing commissions~

I should probably make a post like this so I am, those above are just some of the examples of things you can get as commissions from me, the price varies depending on what is requested and what is asked of course.

Some extra money on the side is always helpful for a 17 year old. I have a lot of free time these days as all I do is design yearbook pages for my school all day long.
