Special guest Katy Hendry

Pensacon on february 2018, 4 students will be selected and 26 pieces reproduced.

Theme: Starwars

Send work by January 15th 2018.

First Project Critique was on October 5th.

Nice works out there! The jelly fish was adorable!

My first option for the project did not work out well, I had troubles finding the right paper, so I went for plan B and designed a simple halloween lamp, and it may have been too simple...
