First Collab on Polywork


Connected with a fellow cognitive science major interested in the tech industry and accessibility. I shared how I approached networking and skillbuilding as an introvert from a nontraditional background. We talked about doing things the way that is healthy for you vs forcing yourself to do what others proclaim as the only "right" way.

Finished The Art & Science of Drawing SHADING FUNDAMENTALS by Brent Eviston
Designed my own learning path

Took a Shading Course


This course was only 1.5 hours long and what was taught wasn't completely new to me, so I completed it quickly.
I liked that it articulated lighting concepts that I was vaguely grasping at via intuition before. Now I can be more intentional about how I shade.

After years of wanting to blog, inspiration spontaneously struck over a quiet weekend while I was organizing my online course library.
