Don't Worry...

18 by 24 inches

I know that I have been fooling around here, but trust me, there is plenty of 'serious' stuff going on too. Here is just one, much more to follow.

I knew it

This is an elephant, clearly.

This is a schematic for an octopus, you will know now that the eight tentacles are a lie.

This is a rabbit.

This, of course, is a cat.

Where I've been this whole time

Hi there, this is my actual studio. I still need a door, as you can see, I'm using an old painting instead from my impasto phase (good times).

I get shit every now and then for not working in the 301 or just always playing close to the vest in general. However, I have been interested in keeping a practice at home since sophomore year; my conviction is that if this is honestly the path in life that one chooses, the home studio should be a no-brainer (i.e., you shouldn't put your work away at the hardie, only work in school designated areas, and then go on with your life because THIS IS YOUR LIFE!!!! Well, at least it's mine) This room is also my bedroom, you don't see the mattress because I drag it out into the hallway in the morning and lay it back down to sleep at night.

Metal indeed.

Thanks, everybody!

Last semester, I made 27 2-inch square drawings of still lives in my apartment that I later put in my cubicle at 301 for people to take. I kept one and 23 of you took a drawing and I wanted to say thanks to all of you. It's really cool to see when someone puts one of my drawings in their studio; in Lillie's case, I see my drawing when I clean her office.
Thanks again, everybody!
