I'm employed!!

So school is officially over and it's still kind of sinking in. I'm sure it'll really hit me in the fall when I won't be going back to class with everyone. I'm glad to be done though! Three years is a long time!

The great news is that I've already found a job! I'm working as a costume production assistant on a feature film, for one of my absolute favorite designers! If you know me, you can probably guess who.. :) I've been raving about how awesome she is ever since I had the chance to help her in the research library when I interned at Western costume two years ago.. Anyway, the great news is that the film shoots in LA, so I'm employed through mid December!! It's a period film as well, with some great actors attached, so I'm very excited to get to see this one all the way through from prep thru wrap!

That's all I'll say for now.. but I'm super excited!

Done with grad school!

Well, this weekend was Design Showcase West, marking the end of my time in grad school! It's still kind of sinking in.. graduation is this Friday and then it's officially over! Too weird!

Two weekends ago I was at the National Design Portfolio Review, which was a similar showcase of graduating designers from across the country. We each had a booth where we put up examples of our work and had our portfolio books to peruse, and people came by to chat and give critique. While I was in New York, I had the opportunity to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met (AMAZING!) as well as The Book of Mormon on Broadway! It was pretty hysterically funny.. I have bought the soundtrack since I got back and it's still funny even after listening to it over and over.. Check it out if you're in NYC! (If you can get tickets that is..)

What with all of this portfolio organizing that I've been doing over the past few weeks, I updated a few things around here as well. I added photos and renderings from Erendira, my thesis production, as well as some new illustrations.
