I did a some TFiOS fan art while I was listening to the audiobook last weekend. I had a bunch of notecards, some nice pens, and no homework, so I made a thing. This was my first time doing something like this, and I’m really happy with the way they turned out, especially the first and third ones.
I’m thinking about rereading Looking for Alaska this weekend, so maybe I’ll do this again! If you have any favorite quotes from LfA, I’m totally looking for ideas.
Made my morning.

I diagrammed some John Green quotes.

For my Final Major Project, in Photography, I decided to base it on the book Looking For Alaska, by John Green.
I knew that from the start, I wanted at least three final photos that I could frame and display with quotes from the book - the photographs each representing a quote from the book. My exhibition starts on Friday. Scary stuff.
So these are my three final prints and these are the quotes they represent:
Photo 1: “Scared isn’t a good excuse.”
(For this, I decided to recreate the kitchen scene when Alaska was younger.. The description when Alaska describes what happened will be displayed next to this photo, along with the scared quote.)
Photo 2: “She fell apart because that’s what happens.”
(I just hoped this would work well. I hope it does!)
Photo 3: “Memories fall apart too. And then you’re left with nothing.”
(I decided to do a photo of old letters and keys and ended up focusing on the flower that looks similar to the one used on the cover of the books. I even plucked the petals to make sure there were exactly twelve, like in and on the book cover. I made the flowers a running theme through all the photographs so that they all linked, too.)
I just hope this is okay.
Drop me a message and let me know, nerdfighters, please!
I know these aren’t quotes per say but they were far too stunning not to reblog

Wonder Fair invites you to go on an adventure…
Soon, soon, the shadowy Secret Order of the Black Diamond will emerge from obscurity, joining forces with the Wonder Fair Gallery to help cement their reputation as one of Lawrence, KS’ best-kept secrets.
Our goal? Instead of curating a Gallery of artworks to be passively and privately consumed, the Black Diamonds will curate a series of experiences—adventures on which you will embark throughout the Lawrence community (and beyond) during the month of April, 2013. As with any traditional Gallery exhibition, there *is* art to be seen and art to be obtained from our printerly Secret Society—but it will not be found within the walls of Wonder Fair…
It’s an art gallery run by nerdfighters and looks really cool!
