The Great Galloping Bison

There is a snowstorm outside, so I'm stuck at home and I can't make it to my illustration class. Most colleges are closed today, but mine is not part of them. Going from Lac-Beauport to Ste-Foy by bus takes about one hour when there's no traffic, but with the snow falling horizontally, I guess it would take wayyyyy longer. Beginning the session with 3 hours of absence is not the best plan in the universe, but I don't really have a choice... I'll work on other projects instead.

I had a design class yesterday and the first assignment is a logo for a fictive restaurant. We have to choose between a Tunisian one, a Malgasy one and an Arizonian one. I picked the Arizonian restaurant (called La Conquête de l'Ouest), mostly because I'm very interested in the Wild West (cowboys! sheriffs! saloons!), the Native Americans (Navajo! Apache!) and the bison (haha). I'm currently working on the research part of the design process. I've been reading this super interesting website about the archaeology of Arizona and by the time this project will be completed, I'll be a pro in all things from the American Southwest. I plan to take a southwestern roadtrip after graduation. I really want to see the slot canyons, visit Old Acoma and photography a lot of things. I want to take a year a few months off, get a RV and visit places. I really miss roatrips and staying in our RV (my parents sold it before they separated), so this adventure would be awesome! As you can see, my Southwest dreaming was the (subtle) inspiration for this outfit: Navajo print, leather skirt (remember the bison?), canyon-orange tights and sand-coloured cardigan. So conceptual :) I don't have a sheriff's badge, otherwise I would have proudly worn it! Haha!
