Before leaving a College of Environmental Design, I would be remiss if I didn’t take a legit design studio, especially one co-taught by Elizabeth MacDonald and Allan Jacobs.
I’ve been taking and loving a course in Visual Notetaking this semester. One of our weekly assignments was to record ourselves live drawing a topic. The undergrads illustrated Taylor Swift songs. I illustrated my thesis. To each his own.
My presentation on Oakland’s parklet program won an honor prize at the UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design’s “Circus”. Not a bad practice run for the APA conference in April. Update: I won the top poster prize. Cool. To celebrate, I ordered my poster tube to take to LA.
