Overview of the Past Half Year!

So today I finally finished my first semester at the University of Texas and I must say it was quite an experience. I meet some new people, hung out with old friends, and even exchanged ideas with other artists. I know I have posted in a long time and it’s mostly due to being loaded with homework and the fact that I couldn’t access my flickr account so I could upload photos for the blog. So here’s a basic quick overview of what went on the past few months.

My classes were interesting to say the least. All of my teachers were unique in their own way and had a lot to talk about certain subjects and even included their own opinions which I didn’t see as much as my past professors in my hometown. Though out of those four classes, two of them were always a delight to attend, and of course they were both about art.

My art history class was always very interesting due to the fact art is already interesting enough but also because my professor was such a unique individual. He was always energetic, optimistic, and very entertaining. Even our TA who taught our discussion class was very passionate about art history and was also very optimistic. I must say that I’m going to miss that class a lot.

But the of course, one class that I will terribly miss will be my digital art class. I seriously had the most fun and was the most stressed because of  this class. I’m glad to say that I actually learned a lot about many different programs such as Premiere,  Illustrator, and AfterEffects. I even got some artwork displayed in one of the hallways in the ART building at UT, so I’m actually very proud of that. Plus, Neal is such a cool guy so his class was very enjoyable.

I also went to Wizard World Comic Con here in Austin with my friend Javi a few weeks ago so that was kind of fun! We even got to meet some cast members from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Here are a few pictures from that event:

Thor called me a mortal!

I even made a TARDIS bag for the event!

One thing I’ve been doing a lot since I moved here to Austin is baking and actually cooking meals from scratch. No idea where  I got this inspiration to cook from but I’m glad I’m actually being productive in some way. So of course, here are a few things I’ve cooked and baked:

And I even got to make a sugar skull for Dia de los Muertos with a $1 skull mold I found at Michael’s:

I went back to my hometown last week for the Thanksgiving break and I must say that I really missed my family. Next weekend I’ll probably be back in my hometown for about five weeks then it’s back to school again.
