I have a little breather this weekend, and gosh darn it, I miss my blog!
So I wanted to take a quick minute and update you with some recent things that have been going on over here. Or should I say 'ova hee-ya'? Does that make me sound cooler?
Ha oh that reminds me of how I love that song "Cooler than me." Anyone else? You think you're cooler than me? Yeah, you're probably definitely right.
Anyways... gosh I missed my blog. It's my place to say whatever floats my boat! Like 'floats my boat.' Or 'for pete's sake.' I love that one. I remember hearing it a lot growing up. "Oh, for pete's sake!" What does it even mean? (Ah, I googled it- and found it's a way to not be blasphemous- http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-pet2.htm)
Okay so that was written on Friday, when I was like "oh yeah! time to do my blog!" Except for it was a fake out, and now it's Tuesday night. But here I am, and here's some recent drawings I've done!
We learned 1 point and 2 point perspective in drawing class for our last unit. I was happy to do something different than still life, but it was a challenge for sure. I remember in high school art class, the 1 point perspective drawing was my worst grade. It was actually the exact same assignment as this...
... to draw the inside of any room we wanted... a dream room if you will. I think I did much better this time around, thankfully! It may look pretty boring, but it was hours of work, and a couple do-overs.
And here's the big drawing we did in class. Mine is a new building we have on campus. We used black paper, black and white pastel/ charcoal, and one color of pastel. I really love the look of the monotone, and I'm happy with how it turned out.
Here's the calculations and planning it took to get this done... I could never be an architect! It seemed like such a mess in the beginning, and for the life of me, I could not get those windows to be even without measuring them all and then scaling up. I know there's an easier way... right?
Also... here's a clue to what my life has been for the last few weeks in my 2D class...
Making a graphic novel. In a group. Soooooooooo not my favorite thing. Yes, I checked this book out to make sure I was even doing it correctly...
So how have you guys been!?? Any other exciting projects going on?
