October’s been an extremely busy month for me.
I’ve been hard at work at a capstone project. Capstone is what seniors in the Industrial Design Department consider their Senior Thesis. I can’t divulge what exactly my project is. However, it is related to motorcycles and aiding old and new riders alike.
I’ve been in contact with amazing resources here at RIT that varies from facility to the student themselves. Through the four weeks in October I’ve been to Buffalo for a weekend, and exploring the city and admiring the beauty of upstate N.Y. in the fall… especially when it comes to riding a motorcycle.
I suffered a devastating unexpected loss over the summer, so I really dived into motorcycles and art, something I shared a strong bond with my recently departed father. RIT and the Industrial Design Department have been incredible at supporting my goals. My capstone is primarily all about motorcycles and here is a link to my sketches that I’ve been doing recently. All the drawings you see were done in October. I may move to serious pieces that require more time.
My fraternity also was there for me all the way. They backed me up every time I was struggling. The resources here are incredible. That’s why I’m also humbled and proud that the fraternity, Sigma Nu, which is a predominantly Deaf fraternity on campus, chose me as their Eminent Commander for Spring ’15/ Fall ’16. I’m excited to see what the year holds for me.
‘Til next time,
