Reflection: What color scheme did you choose? Why? I chose these colors because these colors represent how I feel and my emotions throughout the course of the day.

What part of the project did you excel in? What part of the project posed a challenge? I excelled in my designs with the guta however I feel like i wasted a lot of the space I had to create different shades of color.

How is the word that you chose (if it is not your name) relevant to you? How is the imagery (the symbols, designs, and/or pictures around your word) relevant? This is relevant to me because I chose the very geometric images because I like shapes a lot more than random designs.

This is the other piece I admire the most because I like how he used thick guta lines and we both used similar colors.
