Illustrator and graphs

Did you know Illustrator can draw graphs…

Even pie graphs?!

I didn’t until today!

When I’m looking though blogs and tutorials for photoshop things for Illustrator also come up, so while looking randomly at veerle’s blog I found an entry about making pie graphs in Illustrator.

I had no idea you could draw pie graphs or any other kinds of graphs in Illustrator, my world has opened up a little more! What i find cool about the pie graph tool is, I don’t actually have to use it to draw pie graphs! I know how to draw pacman in Illustrator an easy way now! Hahahahah!

Praise me! Praise me!

Last week I wrote about my last assignment for MC2, it was an research analysis assignment where all I basically did was read papers and wrote what I found in those papers and then show the class my findings.
The topic is choice for my analysis was Emoticons and I called my presentation:

SMS me a smile: Emoticons and all their wonders

Today I had my talk, showed my power point and ranted about emoticons. I went over the topics: what are emoticons, how the pager was used as a telecommunication device before the mobile was introduced, I explained where the Japanese emoticons (kaomoji) came from and what some of the faces mean, talked about the use of emoticons on the internet, mainly talking about: E-mails, chat rooms and websites, also mentioned how people react to emoticons and I ended my talk with saying that emoticons can be an extension of the body. So, after an odd 10 minutes of me getting tongue tied, tripping over words and their pronunciation and mumbling my talk was finished.

At the end of the class I asked my lecturer for some feed back on how I went and she handed me over my assessment sheet. And omg.

A HD (HD = High Distinction = 80-100) And not just any HD, A HD++! Ah, it made me happy, since I had been worried for the past two-three weeks I was going to screw this up.

 

drawing – WIP

ryvin_WIP

Not sure where to start on my home work I though I’d do some drawing… but now I’m a bit tired of drawing. I’ll try and finish this off later when I feel like drawing again.
Haven’t come up with a name for this piece, thus the “drawing – WIP” title.

On my wall is a list of what I need to do… but nothing seems fun :\ I’m just killing time right now.

MC2 last assignment – anyone got a highlighter?

Final assignment for MC2, I’m still not really 100% sure what we are doing for this >.> I think it’s a case study, where we read about a topic and pick an issue and present it to the class, without saying what we think about the issue or adding in our own personal beliefs.

Elevator, elevator, take me home

I’m so hard for the rich girl
Her heels so high and my hopes so low
‘Cause I don’t know how to love

Well this is rare, I find myself with no assignment due within the week (since I’m pretty much almost at the end of the week) so I have this thing called spare time on my hands…and after a few hours of mindless nothingness I find myself listening to a play list of love songs (since all songs are some-what love-based) and the mood to draw something.

It’s been a while since I drew and coloured something in for myself. Tho I don’t think I’ll finish it, it’s just not what I had in mind…. The song I’m being inspired by is Elevator Love Letter by Stars. You can see their video clip on youtube. The lyrics in the song are just love. My favorite line has to be “I’m so hard for the rich girl” because it’s just win. You should also listen to your Ex-Lover is dead because it’s just as much win.

Don’t go, say you’ll stay
Spend a lazy Sunday
In my arms, I won’t take
Anything away
