Self-Portrait

This was probably the worst experience I have had in my sculpture class. For our final project, we had to carve our head out of foam, and it had to be realistic and anatomically correct. The foam was extremely hard to work with and I think each week I got more and more frustrated. To make matters worse, I had to also create a pedestal. Naturally, I decided to sew some arms out of fleece (with my mom's old sewing machine)... AND, we had one week less than the other classes. Great. It certainly doesn't look like me, but people pretended to like it.

Hanging Out

Wow. It has been awhile since I have posted. Oops. It is actually finals week, and so I have been pretty busy, but I finished my sculpture a long time ago. I ended up hanging it from the ceiling and I thought that it looked pretty good. you can see all components here: the abstracted volume, the container, and the connector. Turns out I actually got a 97 on it (Yay!).

APRIL FOOLS!!

Wouldn't this be the perfect place for a really funny April Fool's joke? Well, I am not that clever. I have only managed to get one of my friends today, and it wasn't that great. I did actually start sewing a new sock creature and it is almost finished. I am working back stage for a play, and I whipped it out during my down time. It is needless to say that the actors all think I am freak, but they aren't really wrong... I will post it soon.

And in other news, I am trying to sign up for an Intro to Costuming class for next fall. There is one spot left in the time slot that I want, and I sign up tomorrow morning, so wish me luck. Well, this was a boring post, but a quick update is always nice, and I was avoiding studying...
