In order for your project to be successful, it’s very important to plan each day and what aspect of the portfolio you are going to accomplish in that time. It’s hard because sometimes things can go wrong and your plan has to then be altered.
March 9th, 2009 – First day back from Spring break and we have already investigated about the artist portfolio and what it entails. Also, we have generated quite a few feasible designs for what our portfolio is going to look like inside and out. This can be found on this very blog.
March 11th, 2009 – We now have to write an artist’s statement but it’s hard to write something about which you don’t know so first things first. I have to research information about what an artist’s statement is.
March 13th, 2009 – In class, we will write out our artist’s statement. We have to clarify the tone and the theme of our portfolios. I think it will be quite a challenge because i’ve never done it before but it’ll interesting to learn new things.
March 17th, 2009 – Mr. Penning has to teach us how to use certain programs so it’ll be easier for us when we have to use the program to design our projects. Photoshop and InDesign are two programs of which we already know. By today i have to have started my portfolio so I don’t get behind in the creating aspect of the project, the most important part. On this class, I am going to work on the layout of my portfolio, as in when you pop in the c.d. what is the first thing you see !
March 20th, 2009- Hopefully last class went well and I finished my layout for my portfolio. This class I will have to write my biography because I will include that in my portfolio.
March 24th, 2009 – I should have all my clothing designs ready for scanning by March 24th, so on this day I can place them all in my c.d/portfolio and just focus on the c.d and c.d cover for the classes to come.
March 26th, 2009 – this class will be spent finishing up anything left to be done on my layout, nothing major hopefully. In Design and Photoshop will be used a lot in order for me to finish my whole layout.
March 31st, 2009 – Today, I will start putting together the pictures that I’m going to use for my c.d and have that done for this class and then start working on my c.d cover this class as well.
April 6th, 2009- This is the time where any last minute touch-ups will be made. Also, the music for my portfolio will be included today. I will save them to a USB and upload them to the computer at school. My layout will be completely and totally done. My c.d cover should be done today as well and i should be able to print it out and put it into the case. My c.d as well needs to be done so that next class when I need to hand it in, everything will be fabulous and ready to go!
April 8th, 2009- Our portfolios are due today ! If all the planning I have done is accurate and nothing unexpected occurs and ruins my plans, my project will be perfect and ready to hand in today! If any minor aspects need to be fixed I will just touch them up today and that’s it ! 🙂
I am planning on following my plan to the letter and if anything should go wrong or if i didn’t plan enough time for something, I won’t let it ruin my plan, I’ll simply go to recoup after school one day and catch up on my work. Also, I will make sure that I don’t waste my class time because we don’t have that many days left and one class spent doing nothing would set everything back. My drawings that are going to be in the portfolio are already drawn and ready for scanning so I’m not worried about them. I can’t afford to even miss one class because time is precious at this point and it’s really important that I finish this portfolio.
