Really, I shouldn't be writing this now - since I have a Marketing Research to do as part of the project that I have to hand in TOMORROW. But, the level of excitement from the product I just created, it's just too hard NOT to.

"At the beginning of all growth, everything imitates"
-Pramoedya Ananta Toer

The final product for this one is a lookbook, with my illustrations. The concept started with the word: plants. Then I took the ambiguity of the word which could mean the botanics, AND power plants - especially nuclear plants. This is the perfect contrast, something that is very natural and beautiful against something controversial, mad-made, and destructive. Taking the idea from Pramoedya Ananta Toer's quote, I specifically looked into flowerbuds - as the 'beginning of growth'; then completely destroy it with the effects of nuclear radiation that includes contamination, and mutation. Hence, I give you:

Full view recommended - and you can read the collection's narrative too

Mind you that this is just the end product. I will also be graded based on the process I show in my sketchbook - which I think is not the best. So, I'm not expecting a good one for this one.

Oh well.

how do you compromise with the lack of motivation and deadlines that just keep getting closer

and closer

and closer

and closer

It's just unfair that I'm this badly unmotivated for the last project of the year :(

Writing this makes me feel more like a dork.
