OCAD U Grad Ex: Final Preparations


Today's my last post before the Grad Ex (cue the drum roll). I think I'm officially starting to panic.

I've been insanely busy these past couple weeks with a whole host of things that all require my undivided attention, and it feels like I've gone from one emergency to another when it comes to thesis to what I'm working on right now. There's so much to do its essentially the flight of the bumblebee on high speed - I've barely had time to think, let alone think constructively. I had hoped to have a small break in between thesis and the upcoming Grad Ex, but life has decided that I'm not busy enough, and has subsequently punished me for complaining.

When all of this is over, I think I'm going to eat chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate. Maybe read a book or two. In the meantime, I've set up my display at the school, and documented the process:

Dragging out all the original illustrations, to decide which ones to use in the show, and which ones to discard.

Going through my sketches...

Fixing up the illustrations in photoshop.

Business card designs. I went through so many iterations.

Test prints - many test prints - before printing the final products for the show.

And finally, show prep itself!

For those of you who live in the Toronto area, check out the OCADU Grad Ex, from May 2nd to 5th (see details here). My thesis work will be on display, and I'll be there for all four days.

For those of you who can't make it to the show, I'll be posting up the rest of of my thesis illustrations over the next several weeks. Keep your eyes peeled.

Until then, Grad Ex planning. Gogogogogo!
