My classes ended yesterday and I am getting geared up for a long roadtrip home. I am going to visit family and friends for a week in Indiana. When I get back I am going to get my studio organized to get started on a few new bodies of work. I want to complete a series of portraits in graphite and continue my thought paintings. My summer reading list consists of Harry Potter, A Whole New Mind, and lots of reasearch on design thinking, critical thinking, and idea development for my research paper presentation in Mexico City in Oct.at the MX International Design Conference.
