Above is my finished poster for my 10 Things in 2010 project. I met with one of my thesis teachers yesterday and was encouraged to keep going in this direction. Finally, someone see’s my work has meaning and thought! The next poster I want to finish will be 11 Things to do in 2011, and we’ll see at the end of the year what I ended up accomplishing. I’m hoping they’ll be some great unexpected things, as there was in 2010! Here’s hoping …
I have lots of exciting news this week, and if everything pans out, I’ll be super excited for my luck in the new year. Tonight, I have a hot date with Debbie Millman, author of Look Both Ways, the book I’m always talking about. After meeting her in November, we’re finally sitting down and talking. I’m so excited! It also makes me happy b/c my “oh so positive” thesis teacher said I’d never get a meeting with her, I proved her wrong! Take that.
Also in exciting news, I have an interview for a design internship at Jonathan Adler! But there’s the catch, as of today. The Pratt MFA schedule online isn’t correct, so I had this great plan of using my two “full” days off (which actually don’t exist) to work there. Turns out a class I thought was at night, meets during the day. Now I’m going to have to create some really messed up schedule based around having class pretty much everyday. I have no idea if they’ll be open to that, but I really hope they take a chance on me. It just makes me angry b/c this is my last shot to do this (I can’t do the summer b/c i’ll also be busy b/c of … you guessed it, PRATT!) and I refuse to do an unpaid internship after I’m done. It’s not even so much that I refuse, but financially, there’s no way I can make that work in the Fall. I think Jonathan Alder would be a great warm up for this summer when I study pattern and textile design in Copenhagen. I’ve always loved his brand, style, and products, and I feel this could be a good fit. I’m just praying school doesn’t come in the way … yet again. Will keep you posted.
I seem to be on solid ground (finally) for thesis, might have a new internship, and meeting one of design crushes tonight … 2011 is off to a good start indeed.
