The Herschel backpack

Here's the backpack that I use everyday for university. It's by Herschel Supply Co. and I love it. It's spacious enough to carry everything (my laptop, sketchbooks and books).

I've always been very picky when it comes to choosing backpacks,  I always try to look for something simple and minimalist, but beautiful and functional at the same time. Well, I think I found the right one!

What do you think? Do you like backpacks?

So yeah, I know (maybe?) you've all wondered why I stopped blogging for a while... And, I don't know why I didn't write this post before but here it goes...

I started university two weeks ago! That's the main reason why. But, finally... I mean, remember what happened? Yeah, not cool at all. Well, I managed to enter and I have to say that I'm loving it!! The teachers are awesome (well, some of them) and I've made a lot of friends (ok, 6) so far! And they're pretty awesome, we're always hanging out.

But the only thing is, there's a bunch of stuff to do. Like really, my design teacher (I'm studying Advertising) is leaving us like 6 projects every week that we have to work on. So, that's a lot for me. He's the only one leaving us a lot of work, but it's okay. At least, I like it.

Well, that's it. Just a little update. Now I'm off to do homework, I'll tell you more soon. Have a nice day!!

Remember when I told you about my university exams? Well, last monday I had to go there again because  I had to take my drawing and design exams. Let me tell you how it went...

I woke up veryyy early (it was like 7am) I had to be there at 10am for my exam. So, I ate my breakfast and started to get ready at 8. The only problem is that I had to wait for my dad to drive me there*. I waited and waited and waited...

After half an hour, he finally arrived. And surprisingly I was 'on time'. At least that's what I thought.

But traffic is a bitch, it was like 9:57 or something by the time I arrived. Lucky for me, a friend of mine named Gabriela was waiting for me and we had to rush to get to the classroom, so I was not the only one.

This is Gabriela.

When we got there, we had to sit on the tables that were far behind at the classroom. The teacher entered and he told us to create or develop any idea we had, using the 3 basic shapes (triangle, circle and square). We had to cut the shapes with a scissor and then we had to stick them in a piece of paper.

I was like 'fuck this, what do I do now??'. I hated the fact that I had no ideas at that time. My mind was blank. I needed time to think.

I stood there for... I don't know, 10 minutes probably? just staring at the paper and all that. But at the end, I could think of something. I won't say what it was because somehow it wasn't very good. I think I failed actually.

But anyway, after that we had our drawing exam, and I had to say it went pretty well. I think it was good for almost everybody. Some people did cartoons, others did flowers, landscapes and portraits. I was very impressed by some of the work I saw back there, they were really amazing!

Maria smiling!

After our drawing exam. We were starving so we went to a small yet really nice cafeteria that's right beside the university. We ate like crazy. I mean we spent a lot taking those exams and it was already 2pm, that's the reason why we were so hungry.

When we went back, we had our objectives and expectations exam which was pretty weird actually. The teacher was very funny and made a lot of jokes. I love it when people have a good sense of humour!

Well, I guess that's it for now, It wasn't really that bad after all. 


*No, I still can't drive. I mean I know how to but I still don't have my license.


PS: The illustration was inspired by De Fursac SS12 Lookbook.
PSS: It's my first time drawing on Photoshop, that's why the drawing looks  kinda weird.

On the Street... Apec University, SDQ

So, I was taking more university exams last monday as I told you. So far I've met great people. After I finished, I decided to take a walk with my friends. The campus seemed very nice to me, it's pretty big and you can get to the other buildings very easily.

When we were walking, I suddenly heard the sound of a violin. My friend said to me 'look at that, that's awesome!'. It was indeed, I saw this violinist playing a really nice melody so I took a picture of her.

It reminded me of the days that I used to play the guitar, but sadly I don't do it anymore.

What about you? Do you play any instruments? Let me know!
