A leg to stand on.
After banging out a couple of rudimentary sketches of underdeveloped ideas for pieces of furniture this morning, I realized with dismay that my work was nothing short of MEDIOCRE. Mediocre is the place I never want to be. Except in the sciences. I'm pretty mediocre in sciences. M-E-D-I-O-C-R-E. (In my defense, all of those took about 15min.)
Suffice it to say, I need to do some research into this whole furniture business, and NOT in Ikea catalogs! Sooo as I go out to do some last minute Christmas shopping on today the 24th (worst idea Ever) I will probably pick up some kind of magazine at Chapters. Research will be done.
I will be back later today with refreshed sketches, hopefully of consequence.
edit: problems to fix
1) make design that is not only pleasing to the eye, but also FUNCTIONAL. must fulfill some kind of previously neglected need or practicality.
2) do some research into materials
3) do some research into how to make furniture
