I'm Liz, a senior illustration major. My hobbies include playing video games, picking up side hustles, and taking naps. Most of my art is illustrations and animations. Right now I'm working on two big personal projects: An animated comic about a girl with super powers working in a trading card store and my own trading card game which I've recently taken back to the drawing board. As for writing I would say I am pretty apathetic towards it. I do it when I have to and it is usually fine, but it's not something I go out of my way to do. I also do a fair amount of reading, especially on current events involving politics and new technology. I was thinking my writing in this class could relate to that as the Democratic National Convention is coming to Milwaukee and there is always new ways the local communities are taking advantage of new technologies. In relation to that have a meme.
Response to Todd
The last time our class met we talked with Todd Mrozinksi. We talked about how he went about becoming a writer, his process for writing, and different works he made and articles he wrote. I found it interesting that even as a professional in the field he still writes mostly based on inspiration, the example that comes to mind is how he visited the Milwaukee Art Museum multiple times with no inclination of doing an article on the Degas to Picasso exhibit. Yet the last time he got the idea and followed up on it by taking pictures of each piece in the exhibit and its information. Another example he talked about was how during his residency at the Pfister many of the pieces he created were of people who stopped by as he was painting. Overall i feel writing needs inspiration to be its best, without it you end up with something lifeless and dry. For my topic I have multiple people I'd like to interview and they all are super inspired to be making a difference both at MIAD and in the community at large.
