Mint Chocolate Chip Kool-Aid

We had to create a tunnel book based on a dream we had for Artist Books class so I chose to make an abstract book based on the Mint Chocolate Chip Koolaid dream I had a while back.

After many many hours, many imperfectly cut circles, much rubber cement, and only one poke from an X-acto knife, I am finally finished this tedious project for my punctilious, persnickety teacher.

Final Full-scale Drafts

I've got my selection narrowed down to these three. I think I'm leaning towards the last one.

Just a few thumbnails....

What the architect's tools are for...

When I got my list of supplies that I'd be needing for foundations year, I was quite skeptical when I ran across numerous tools that sounded like they would be used for architecture and other things requiring straight edges and geometry, etc.

I learned a few weeks ago that they are for my 3D class. We were given a Lego block and taught how to draw it properly, to scale, from three different angles (top, front, and right side). For this I used my T-square, 45/90 triangle, and compass and one of those shmancy hard leaded pencils that architects use all the time.

They're lousy pictures, but you get the gist....

Newspaper Taxis

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
and you're gone.

Basic Drawing Portfolio

For my basic drawing class I had to put together a portfolio comprising of ten to twelve drawings from the past month. Here are my selections:

Froot Loops Finale

My desk is now Froot Loop free! The boxes are constructed, the Froot Loops are all written on and I didn't even have to make a second trip to Pick N Save!

Friday, October 5, 2007


For the past couple of weeks in my Space, Form & Materials class (this is my all-day Friday class) we have been working in the 3D Lab at school with hand tools making modules. These are two identical pieces fashioned out of wood that fit together whichever way you situate them (sort of like Lego). I completed mine today and also waxed them so they are pretty and smooth.

Still Not Enough

My desk is still being overrun my Froot Loops and despite this, I still don't have enough cereal for my project (although I admit eating half the box might have had something to do with this.....) so another trip to Pick N Save will be taking place this weekend.
