Set up honors meeting to revise proposal on Friday, meeting on Monday
Messed around with using halftone images and textures in Vectoraster
Researched getting cremation license (this is adjacent learning, I promise)
Did some hand lettering exploration
Messed around with layouts
Unfortunately, I found out on Friday that the proposal I submitted earlier this week requires some edits, so I scheduled a meeting with my honors advisor on Monday morning to review and discuss some options. I might have to add an additional research element to my project, so hopefully that won’t add a ton of extra stress on my process.
I’m hoping to finish my full first draft of copy this week and do some scale test prints once I’m back around a printer. I’m also really considering binding my own final booklet to make it a lot cheaper, but that’s kind of tbd until I decide on final book dimensions.
