The focus of this week was graphic design. I started by reading assigned articles and then writing a response to them.
I then went on a designblitz, in which I took numerous photos of design in the real world and then wrote about how they utilized the elements of design.
My first one was the Simple but Complex which asked me to design a logo that is both simple and complex. Can You Decipher all the Hidden Meanings of this Logo?
I also completed 3 daily create assignments.
The first one was to photograph an example of concentric circles in my world. I took a picture of the top of my beautiful Udu. As I explained last week, Udus are African musical instruments played with the hands.

Next, I had to take a picture of something modern and retro-fy it. I used my Wacom graphics tablet.

Finally, I had to take a picture of a book I will never part with. I took a picture of all 4 of my dream journals. I try to write in them every morning when I wake up, but I don’t always have a clear enough recollection of my dreams to write anything. They contain so many memories I could not keep without them that trashing them would essentially be trashing a part of my mind and I could never do that.
