Tumblring Forward

Hello everyone!

Splotches has been quite quiet recently. That's due to me concentrating f.eg. on getting my diploma work done for the game graphics school. Yes, I'm a fully licensed game graphics designer now. You may congratulate me! :) Check out my shiny new portfolio over here.

I've also set out to Tumblr! Blogger isn't the very best platform for quick visual entries and in my opinion Tumblr offers better possibilities to interact with others. All my recent sketches and wip-images can be found on nooralotta.tumblr.com. Blogger will still be a home to my quirkier, more explorative art project entries.

My DeviantArt account has also seen some activity recently, so keep an eye out for more Splotchiness over there too!

Embracing spring and new beginnings, Your's truly,
nli


Reaching out to the future!

Lowpoly Tide

My first 3D model, a little lowpoly Seahorsie. Can I hear a little "Yeehaw!" and a "Bulb!"? I wanna see this creature textured and in full gallop.

Trying out...

...different versions.

It's Art When You Call It Art

The last session in Meilahti started off a bit differently than the others before it. I had a special guest: Arlene, the founder of Dear You workshops was there with me to tell about her latest installation piece. So we plunged to the world of installations and scratched the surface of performance art with a seasoned guide.

The outcome of the workshop was creative as always! We got a taste of Du Champ -style piece called Pen on the Floor, a miniature Pollock, Magic tricks of expectations, surprise performative art and framings and of course the Illuminati had it's hands on this workshop too.

We discovered that art is dialogue, a process where we interpet each other. Sometimes we get the gist of things and sometimes we get lost in translation but that's okay. No matter the distance we can always try to reach out to understand and find our horizons being broadened in the process. It's art when you call and treat is as such!

Using some of the words that the Dear You Artist in Meilahti mentioned, all in all we had a fun, new and magical ride on our Dear You journey!
