The semester is finished which means I've been enjoying relative freedom for the past couple weeks. I've been so happy with the LEEP program at University of Illinois this past year, and have been really excited that in addition to learning a lot about libraries, information organization and intellectual property, I've also had a lot of opportunities to create interesting creative projects. I wanted to share a couple of my projects I've worked on for school this year.
This first one I made for my Libraries & Society class. It's a zine about libraries that carry unconventional items for patrons to check out. It's a pretty simple little project, and it's far from perfect, but I'm relatively pleased with how it came out.
This next one was made for my Storytelling class--which turned out to be the best class I've ever taken. After work shopping the story a bit with my class and rehearsal group, I put together a digital story based on a trip I took to Prague almost ten years ago.
Parts of the story have been fictionalized to better fit into the constraints of the assignment and for clarity. (P.S. Sorry about the 3 minutes of blackness at the end. I really need to fix that and re-upload)
Nothing too fancy, but it's nice to see my artistic skills grow along with my librarian skills. Hopefully there will be much more art in the weeks to come while I enjoy my time off from school!
