I think we all know by now that I kind of love art museums. I lost count of how many I went to in Paris and my friend practically had to drag me out of one in Chester when, after two hours, I’d only seen the first two of five floors.
OK so I’ve got pictures on my camera of my recent adventures BUT I forgot the little cord that gets pictures from my camera to my laptop. So here are the pictures I took on my phone instead.
Unsatisfied with my design education (though keep in mind I’ve only been in school for 10 weeks out of 52), I spent my weekend watching videos, reading books, and researching graphic design, in particular, typography and book covers.
Today on the way home from work, I was reading Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice when I caught a glimpse of an extraordinary piece of artwork.
I can’t remember the last time I did a crafts post. A few arts posts, sure, but I think the last time I did a crafts post was back when I first started blogging and I drew on a mug with a marker. This craft took a little more effort than that. But not by much.
Oh no! It’s been too long since I last posted!
Quick update: I did nothing all weekend. Today I had class, two meetings, and some reading to do. I’m still working on the reading, but it’s coming along. Will I be able to read 177 pages for 9:15am tomorrow? No. Was that my fault? Yes. Will I be able to get away with it and participate in the conversation during tomorrow’s class? Probably.
Here’s a comic I did for Textual Intervention last semester. I mentioned it here, here, here, and here. I knew I was taking a chance by doing a comic, and either my teacher would love it or hate it. Lucky for me, she loved it and I was very relieved to discover that I received an A- for this.
Here is The Eye That Sees All, based on the story The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe. (You can click on each of the pages to make them bigger, but it’s even better if you can get them to open in a new window.)
I was going to write what was supposed to be my first Arts+Crafts post, but I’ve never painted a mug before today and I kind of messed up. You’ll have to settle for a picture of a dollar-store mug I drew on with a multi-surface paint pen. It was much easier than painting with acrylics. It looks good with my mini pink Christmas tree, doesn’t it? Nice contrast. Anyway, that’s it for this post. It’s actually forty-seven minutes past midnight so I guess that makes this post officially late. I apologize. Since tomorrow is Christmas Eve and the day after is Christmas, I might be too busy to post. If I have the time, then I’ll definitely put something up, but I’m telling you just in case. Hopefully, you’ll be too busy to notice if I do or not.
