Pictures Of My Recent Life
Well, art class is over for this semester. In fact, all of school is over for this semester. I completed Drawing I at Front Range Community College in Larimer. It was fun, I’ve never drawn anything before. I shared my pieces on Facebook as they developed, but I didn’t follow up with another post from my previous here on my blog.
Unfortunately, I don’t exactly have all the pictures to flesh back out here on my blog. But, I do have what I could consider the culmination of my work as it hung in a community gallery. It was kind of cool to see it there. Here’s a picture of it:
This was I believe white conté on darker paper. I was able to do reduction on it to get the details, but I forgot how exactly I did that.
I made a HUGE picture for my final, and I’ll see if I can put that one up later. Maus says I’m better than I think. I like to think I picked up a few skills that I didn’t have before. It was definitely challenging. I’m taking Drawing II next semester. It’s scheduled in the evening, so we’ll see how well that goes.
I went to see Tomorrowland with our friend Rhiannon. She took a picture of us when we came out of the theater. Tomorrowland was awesome. It was one of those movies I would’ve been really upset over and self hating had I seen it a couple years ago. I mean, obviously the characters in the movie are over the top, but at the same time it’s hard not to feel like you’re not doing something with your life.
I have been doing something, I’ve been working on the same project for fourteen years. It’s super hard, and I never am able to ever get where I want. Fourteen years is a long time. I have to remind myself, “I have invented it, it’s just not feasible yet.” It’s a computer program, and I did invent what I wanted to invent but unfortunately I can’t fully run it on a machine because it runs out of memory. It does work when it doesn’t run out of memory, so that’s something.
Anyways, here’s the nifty picture Rhiannon took:
