The Blue Collection

All the creative arts classes brought in blue objects and put them all in a big pile to create a big blue collection.Blue was the color chosen by the votes of the students.
I love this picture because it shows American culture in today's world; painkiller meds, shaving razors because of our obsession with hairless bodies, everything probably made in China, food with nutrition information all over. It's a strange, artificial world were living in,but it's definitely colorful.

About Me: My Nature Collection

   I've had my nature collection for about 2 years now. It's a special little place that I set up in my cabinet where I keep all the eye catchingly beautiful bits of nature that I find on my travels. I believe in paganism, which is a polytheistic Celtic-based religion centered around nature. My collection includes a Barn Owl mask my mom made for me, bird feathers, Deer and Opossum teeth, my baby teeth, dead Cicadas and their shells, dried mushrooms, dried plants, a dead Pandora Sphinx moth, rocks, seashells, crystals, "Sleep Balm" (a lotion with special oils in it that are supposed to enhance dreaming), some of my own drawings, and jewelry that I feel is sacred.

First Marking Period Reflection

  I was a little less productive than I hoped to be this marking period, but I still did what I had to do, and I'm proud of the outcome. I definitely preferred the candy jar project, just because there was a lot more room for color and interesting visuals with the glass and wrappers. I'm not a big fan of bikes.

Candy Jar Assignment

My still-life drawing of a jar with candy inside, done in black pen and Prismacolor colored pencil, on ink-stained paper!

Bike Drawing Project

This marking period, our first assignment was to draw a bike. I personally don't like bikes or the idea of drawing one, so I wanted to make this more than just a drawing of a bike. Mediums used: Prismacolor pencils and sharpie on ink-stained paper
