the hatebook

This is an illustration practice for the second module. We have
to make a book focusing on a person, object or philosophy that
we hate.

Hate is a strong word and our imagery should reflect this emotion.

What is hate? Why do people hate? Why do you hate it? Have you
ever encountered this subject at first hand? Do you hate it because
your peers do? What is your experience / philosophy regarding
hate? I want to collect as much research material as possible :)

additional modules in new class

I'm going to switch to English from now on, since I'm on my exchange
semester in England and rarely speak or think in German anymore ;)
So the first week of uni has passed, and I'm really enjoying my time here.

The students are so friendly and helpful, I get along with them very well.
Our projects are quite interesting, and I am eager to do my best.

I will be doing three projects in my graphic design module, which I really
do appreciate, but I was missing some illustration stuff. So I approached the
lecturer and talked to him about taking a second module, but he reclined to
let me take part in it, since it would have clashed with the first module on two
days. I was disappointed, since the overlapping wasn't too big. While
discussing the matter, I sensed that there was another reason why I should not
take part - The lecturer said that he can't just allow anybody to attend the
module, since it is based on the first year module, so I would lack the basic
understanding of the projects. I told him that we did similar things in Germany
as well, so he asked me to show him my portfolio ...

I had to explain some of the ideas in my pictures, and finally he
said he would arrange something for me, so that I can attend both modules! And
I was soo happy, I was just sitting there and didn't know what to say :)

So now I have lots of work waiting for me, and I'm really excited to do it! :D
