This final project assignment, I chose to make something very simple. As seen in previous assignments, there was a common motif of the 0.5mm mechanical pencil -- first as three different translations, second hidden in the shadows next to the sketchbook in the photographs, third as the subject of instruction in the explanation, and lastly here, as an abstract paper cutout representation towards the bottom of the paper that can only be clearly seen with the use of light. To me, this pencil is very important in representing myself as an aspiring designer and artist. I identify myself most with drawing and this is the tool of choice that I always use when I feel inspired to draw. This last assignment is supposed to be a reminder to the people to stay steadfast with their passions; that although it may not be clear to the eye at first, success is inevitable and it takes time to achieve it. Hope should not be lost time after time of trial and error.
