I had my Jewelry final critique today!
my instructor Joan Irving invited along Jeff De Boer another jewelry instructor at the school who is highly decorated. Any who… he looked at my portfolio and my pieces, asked some questions from me and Joan, and then began to spew compliments at me.
Firstly, Jeff is NOT someone who butters up to you and makes you feel good, students have cried in his crits before.
secondly, he game me a name of a company that I should get connected with.
Jeff said that I did very well with combining concept of sculpture and design of jewelry, and that he wanted to see me in his design class next year. He complimented me on my Doctor Who pin and explained that those who think with the mind of science fiction, in combination with my sort of creativity are the new culture, and that I should use it to my advantage. As well as crediting me for my commissions, he suggested that I continue on with the photograph “A Wardrobe of Sorts”.
I accidentally brought along my Bullet Ring which he was really excited about, and suggested that I make MANY more and sell them to those connected with Gun Culture, Jeff said I could make a boat-load of money.
Joan also kindly put in a number of things about my contributions to the class and how I was a team player.
So overall, Jeff said that I could do amazing things, that I could be responsible for making subcultures into cultures, creating new systems of economy, that I will be so much more then just a technician, and that I am gifted.
He also gave me helpful criticism on my crown in regards to wire work and the appearance of perfection.
That really made me happy and proud of my decision to come to ACAD. I have learned many many things over the past year and a half, and suddenly I can see a whole future I had not even considered.
"I would NEVER have guessed you had anxiety and depression issues ! You’re always so confident and everything !”
So I had a church class tonight, and I was on my way out the door when this boy stopped and asked me what my name was. so I told him, and he said “oh I though it was.”
I DON’T REMEMBER MEETING HIM BEFORE so I awkwardly asked for his ( it was Matthew). he asked me what my hat was (a red panda). and then I basically said goodbye and barrel-rolled out of the church. SO AWKWARD.
I wanna sing but I am too scared.
How long does your ideal hug last
that’s really impractical
u said ideal, not realistic
