First Quarter at SCAD

Hello lovelies!  I've now been home on break for a little over 2 weeks, and it's been absolute bliss to be sewing again!  Most of my focus has been going into the wedding dress that I'm in the middle of working on.  Until I have other projects to show, I thought that I'd show with you some of my artwork from my first quarter at SCAD.

Design projects: 

 This quarter I had Drawing 1, Design 1, and Survey of Western Art 1.  Next quarter I'll be taking
 Drawing 2, Color Theory, and an English elective that focuses on the literature of Jack London.  I feel more optimistic about next quarter, because I did most of my initial adjusting these past couple of months.

Also, I wanted to say thank you to all the outpouring of love that I received after I shared about my homesickness and grief a couple posts back.  I really appreciate all the kind words, and I've been doing so much better now that I've been home for a couple of weeks.  I've been sewing and catching up on rest and just spending time with my family.

Until my next post, here's a couple update photos on how the wedding dress is coming along.  I'm working on hand sewing the bead design onto tulle that will be attached to front of the bodice.


  1. wow those drawings are amazing! i really love them. The dress looks absolutely stunning! I wish id came to you now for mine :P

  2. These are all wonderful Esther!

  3. You are a gifted artist! Glad your homecoming has been just the fuel you needed to recharge! Sewing is good for the soul.

  4. I remember my first semester at SCAD and I took the same classes as you. It's eery to see those images of your drawings because I still have mine!

    I'm glad you're feeling better and getting a lot of sewing done during your break. Stay warm!

  5. Your art turned out so well! I love the folds in the sewing machine picture, it's incredibly challenging to convey transparency in fabric drawings and you succeeded at it. I think my favorite two would have to be the red lined drawing and the flat paper cutout illustration you did, they have a retro charm that makes them particularly interesting. The wedding dress is also coming along really nicely, I look forward to seeing the finished dress.

  6. great work! You've got a very good hand developing there. The beading work on that wedding dress is looking marvelous also!

  7. i love your drawing so much,
    do yo love illustration? cause now i'm learning to draw illustration...
    i love your wedding dress to anyway.. :)

  8. love your work, beautiful drawings.. and can't wait to see that wedding gown finished, it's going to be a stunner, i can tell

  9. The drawings look cool, I like the final one. The beading on the dress looks stunning! Someday I'll have to teach myself proper beading techniques. Also wanted to say I loved your inspiration journal post during summer I've made my own one!
    Thanks for the constant beauty and inspiration!

  10. Ohhh, that is some awesome art! I really enjoyed it, thanks for sharing. As for the dress, just oh my goodness is all I can say
