Woah.

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

I have some new thread. It GLOWS IN THE DARK.
I must make something excellent with this.

Things that are up.

Monday, July 5th, 2010

So, the last 2 weeks of classes have been pretty alright. My public speaking professor is cool, and gym is gym-flavored. I’ve given one speech in public speaking, an informative speech on what to do if someone has a seizure. Later this week I get to give a persuasive speech about something, I’m not sure […]

So Epilepsy.

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

I would like to talk about it.
I was born 12 weeks premature, and a lack of oxygen during my birth cursed me with epilepsy. My seizures, as far as I can remember, went unnoticed until I was 6, but looking back on them my mother thinks she can remember me having them earlier. I have […]

Final project: shading

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

I’ve never been good at adding depth to my 2D works. This project combined that with lessons in symmetry and color.
I had 7 things to turn in at the conclusion of this project. First, we had to draw 4 shapes, and create a composition on tracing paper. Then, using stippling, create different areas of light […]

Textures

Friday, June 11th, 2010

I owe my nonexistent readers a blog post!
I got a new theme. The picture problem the other one was having was just too big of a deal, since I’m posting a lot of pictures. I’ll try to pretty this theme up a bit more, but not too much.
This last project dealt with textures! For the […]

17 MILLION BEES!

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

A truck carrying about 17,000,000 bees crashed in Minnesota. One person died, another was taken to the hospital. AND NOW 17 MILLION BEES ROAM THE EARTH FREE!
So, for part 3 of the negative space project, I chose to make my found-object sculpture using empty Diet Coke with Lime cans, since I had them. Here are […]

My apologies…

Friday, May 21st, 2010

For the inactivity.  I have an 8 to 5 during the summer and I haven’t had much time to ’shop.  I’m trying to work out time, though, because I have some neat ideas!

The only thing better than this comic…

Is this tweet about that comic:

First few days back

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

and my desk is already covered in meaningless bits of paper.
Living in the UMW apartments is cool. But there’s no longer an easy way to get to class from here since they built a huge fence along the outside wall, which before now was climbable. The front gate is open all the time, what’re they […]

Summer school

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

Driving down to F-burg this afternoon. I do not want to goooooo.
That’s not quite true. I’m getting pretty bored. Everyone who keeps saying I’ll have fun at summer school is probably right. I’m rooming with one of my best friends, we’ll be living in an air-conditioned apartment, and I don’t think I’ll hate my classes.
BUT, […]
