A sketch for my etching class.

Animation for class project - Morichar

I tried my hand at stop motion last year for a project about the new square next to our school -it was to celebrate the inauguration of the 'Place Morichar'.
I can't say it was completely successful but for the effort, the hours and all the pain, here goes.

Class photography project - The Sacred

A small selection of my Sacred project from last year's photography course.
Me, myself to model.


Discarded photography project - Zoephine

It's always suprising when you stumble upon old projects. As specially when they're ones that never came to a finish.
This one was a series of photographs for my photography course last year. I had presented them raw, without any modifications for my final project of the year but it got shot down before I could develop it.
One year later, here we are, I found the old folder, thought they still looked pretty good and finally finished the project. I named it 'Zoephine', a mixture of the models'names.

Shooting this was quite fun.
(ps: the photographs are styled as polaroids, frame and all -unfortunately the frame blends in with the background...)

Class project 2 - Movement

Second project:  movement -and anything that has to do with it; it can be a change of state of mind, a political movement, etc.

My work is entitled 'My tears, they dance' ('Mes larmes, elles dansent').

Hope you enjoy.

Class project 1 - Faire l'amour

My first project of the year was to interpret a short story by Toussaint: Faire l'Amour.

-First task was to sketch it out completely, quick sketches illustrating how we interpret the story.
-Second task was to choose three of the pages and bring them to a finish.
Medium: free

Here are the completed pages.

I am Neon

Hey there, Neon Gishi speaking.
I created this blog over a month ago to force myself to be a little more creative; alas, school work, personal projects and my natural laziness were too much for me to handle. Thus here I am now, giving this another try.

First post. What should I post? Should I go on about myself? Hm. Let's make it simple:

Name: Neon Gishi
Gender: F
Age: 20
Location: Belgium
Occupation: Currently studying the art of comics or 'Bande Dessinee' here which is a much wider term for anything illustrated in strips (don't let my history teacher read this). Third year, last year -no idea where to head off too next.
Language: Bilingual french/english and does ok with flemish (bilingual country, yeah?).
Hobbies: Anything creative (sketching, painting, writing, designing music,...), anatomy of the human body, fashion (photography, design, modeling,...), music (written twice -I live on music, I work on music, my heart beats on music.),... the pursuit of happiness?

Good enough? I'd say so. Unless anyone needs to know my favourite foods and how many pair of shoes I own, this is it.

What is my goal in life? I've yet a goal to strive to; I just know that I won't settle easily.
