Hello dear readers,
I'm graduating tomorrow!
Thank you to those who have read my blog over the past four years. It's been so long since that first post so many months ago. My time at Carleton has been very special and full and there's so much that I've gone through and learned here. Much time was spent in my room working on various personal projects. This may seem like sort of a waste--couldn't I do that anywhere? But I really value the time and space I've been given here to be among a community of interesting and creative people, even when I was holed up in my room. It really makes a difference!
First, here's what I've been up to this term:
I took my second ceramics class, The Figure in Clay. Neither of this things are human figure-y but OH WELL.
This was saggar fired. One of the lil creatures is a whistle, the other is a shaker, then there's a big momma one. The little ones go in the big one (they were fired in it, with the big one as the saggar). The lid handle of the big one is a birdy.
One set of cups from my final project.
Also finished my comps book this term and put up the senior show! My book is available on Amazon!
And here's me working on a music video for Mad Rapture, a band featuring a Carleton alum, Maia Rodriguez! I finished this for an Advanced Production Workshop CAMS class. Here's the video!
And just recently, I made a digital version of my storybook Kelly Koala. The book was hand printed and bound, but the bound books didn't lie flat enough to scan. So I took an unbound set of pages that I had printed extra, colored a set (each of the 3 books in the edition were hand-colored), and scanned an unbound set of pages. Then, I added a gradient to make it look like the pages were folded! Here it is!
Well, I gotta go and do all manner of day-before-commencement activities. I wish you all the best and thank you once again for reading! If you want to get in contact with me, my Carleton email is going away, but tweet me on twitter, @JonathanKittaka, ok? Ok. Aloha can mean Hello and Goodbye. But originally it meant affection and peace. Catch you later, readers.
