Romance with my Shoes.

The next assigment for my drawing class was titled by the teacher "Romance with My Shoes." The purpose of this assignment was to take the title for our previous assignmment (Dorm Life) for idea generation. Using objects that represent us we were to create a drawing showing our relationship with our "stuff" in this case my boot and my sweater.

I chose these items becasue it is the pinacle of dorm life to be grabbing things off of the floor and moving on with the activities for the day.

Woodcut Anyone

Ok here is the first project we had to do in printmaking. In this process we use the process of relief to create the image (any printing process in which the ink is transferred to paper from areas that are higher than the rest of the block). Using the technique of woodcut, I created a plate out of MDF wood that would create an image. We were allowed to use any image we liked so I used one of me lampworking.

The title of this piece is "Through the Flame"

New Semester, New Year, Better Teachers

Happy New Year! I still cant believe it is already 2010. With the new year comes some new classes andd particularly some new teachers. Last semester I wasnt particularly impressed with my teachers so when the semester ended I was relieved. Now I have much more exciting teachers and projects to look forward to. Such as this first drawing project:

In this drawing I was to use objects that I thought represented me at this point in time. The objects I used are: an NIU sweater, a boot, a power supply, a cup, a toolbox, and a brick wall. I'll let you decide why I chose these items.
The drawing's title is "Dorm Life"
