Today was the first day of my fall semester of more graphic design classes, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I am usually one of the older students in my classes, and I think probably one of the few students who feels lucky, lucky to be taking these classes and lucky to be creating a new and uber creative career.
I have a crazy full load of classes this semester, with Illustration, Electronic Illustration, Graphic Design and Advanced Web Page Design. I am going to be very challenged in each of these classes in many different ways, ways I am excited to grow in.
It’s great to be back on campus and starting a new routine, but I must confess, I am already missing my summer routine. I was on a roll and getting so much done. I’m hoping I’ll have a few illustration projects to share with you over the next couple months. And I’m hoping to keep up with my own personal sketchbook experiments.
Thanks for stopping by!

I was a much better student when I was older than everyone else…a different perspective I suppose. Your classes sound intriguing and completely over my head! Have a great semester!
Good Luck to you Terri!!
Great sketchbook entries. As a professor, I usually love the older students. They are very focused. As an undergrad, I remember being terrified of the older students, because they were so focused and always set the curve. LOL. One confessed to me, however, that she was terrified of us 20-year-olds, because she hadn’t been back in school so long. It’s funny how that all works! Have a great semester!
Wonderful sketches Terri! I know you’ll gain a lot from your classes. Since I was an older student myself, I know how you feel. Some of the younger students will be intimidated, and others will be great to work with.
It’s great to be able to work toward a goal, you’re doing a wonderful job. Can’t wait to see what you learn this semester!
Nice work on the picnic table. The perspective on that looks super challenging!
It’s wonderful to hear how happy and excited you are – just the right attitude to have 🙂
I hope your semester is fabulous. I’m looking forward to hearing about it.
