Endeavour

Endeavour

My video Endeavour has been out in the world since March, but was updated in July and gifed in August. This project is one of my favorites for a few reasons. One, it’s about space and NASA, so obviously it goes on the favs list. Two, I got to team up with my former roommate, Erin Stepp. She composed the music and asked me to make a video to accompany it during her senior recital at TCU. Three, it was a personal challenge in every way possible. The music is over nine minutes long – I had previously only done videos under four minutes. That’s a big jump in terms of editing. I also had to dust off my Photoshop skills for this new technique I wanted to check out.

Redbubble Shop

Redbubble Shop

I’ve started a Redbubble shop! The idea to open up a shop online has been mulling about in the back of my head for about a year now, but especially once I designed a couple of stickers and sold one design through the School of Art at TCU’s sticker machine.

The original idea was just to sell my two original sticker designs, Space Ace and Seeing Compass, as they were originally intended: stickers. But when Redbubble showed me all the different product options, I couldn’t resist. Variety is the spice of life, right? So now, you can buy my stickers, but you can also by journals and pillows and clothes with these two designs on them.

Semester in Review: Fall 2015

Happy 2016! Before I look ahead, I’ve decided to take a look back at all that happened. All in all, Fall 2015 was the busiest semester of my college career. Here we go…

First up, a new job/internship/thing (how many am I at? 6? 7? a lot). I started at The Art Galleries at TCU, working on their social media, tracking metrics, documenting events, filming interviews, gallery sitting and pretty much anything else that can be squeezed into about 7 hours each week. Which is a lot, surprisingly. This job, though high-paced at times, is a dream come true for me. I remember on my first day the sense of complete relief and contentment that just settled in as I started discussing my ideas and responsibilities. After working for an agency over the summer, coming back to an art setting was like coming home. I know that this is the type of environment that I want and need to work in. This semester I really worked on organizing the various social media platforms, establishing guidelines and continuity, as well as developing new types of content. I have big plans for the future, so I signed up to keep working there next semester!

Portfolio Update

As 2016 looms and fall finals finally finished (alliteration!!), I knew my portfolio (along with the rest of this website) would need some major work. This semester alone I have worked on so many projects and art works. And so, this morning at 5:30, my mind decided that right then was the best time to do it.

Before you go off searching through this site, I’ll point you in the right direction! First up, the Writing tab. I added the most to my Writing samples, both in Public Relations and Research. This semester I helped write and develop research papers and strategies for three classes. You’ll see my presentation for Creative Strategy in the Public Relations tab and my papers for Strategic Communications Research and Creative Crossroads over in the Research tab.

FOUND: Houston’s awesome, the truth, another podcast

FOUND: Houston’s awesome, the truth, another podcast

FOUND: James Turrell’s “Twilight Epiphany,” Twilight truths, Houston’s Awesome, Wolf 359 and If This Then That
FOUND: Houston's awesome, the truth, another podcast | Constant Creations

I love Houston, so just expect a lot of things about Houston to pop up in my blogs. The “Twilight Epiphany” skyspace by James Turrell is a beautiful example of what Houston has to offer: culture, art and a unique place to live. It also says that not longer how much you know about a place, you will continually find new people, places and things to love about it. I have lived near Houston all my life, yet I never knew about this place until this past week!

Free Art Friday

Free Art Friday

What Free Art Friday taught me about good branding.

First off, Free Art Friday is a weekly scavenger hunt for art that occurs in many cities across the world, including Houston. Artists of all trades put out a free piece of art and then post clues on Instagram with #htxfreeartfriday for people to find. When somebody finds the art piece, they have to post on Instagram that the artwork has been found. I participated in Houston’s own Free Art Friday for the first time a couple of weeks ago and was so inspired by the event. As I was running (well, driving) around town with my mom and brother, I realized that Free Art Friday was all about branding.

Read what #htxfreeartfriday taught me about branding and promotion over on The Back 9 Blog.
