After binding about 20 books over the past few days and having a secret love for pop up books and 3d illustration.. naturally this would amuse me.

Spring Break SCAD Tour

me gusta these posters.

On the tour, Anna (the tour guide) took us to the Student Activities Center. This is where students can go if they just want to hang out or do homework. It's also the place where you go when you want to start a new club.


Ok, this is a sleep pod. It's amazing. You can set it for 20 minutes and shut the top egg thing and after the timer goes off, the chair tilts forward, the lights come on, and it starts to gently vibrate to wake you up. Genius!

Figure drawing for fashion majors. They have costume wardrobes to the side because learning how to draw textures and fabric is very important for when they are communicating a certain style or feel of clothing.

Beauty is made here.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the stars. When you return, Earth will be waiting- even better than when you left it. -Wall*E

What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? Wall-E, spends every day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was meant for, as he adventures across the galaxy chasing his dream.

Why Wait?: Day 1 of 30

So, for the first day of 30 days of art, I have some (more) prints from NYC. I used a Canon EOS Rebel G11 and Ilford 400 speed film.

30 Day Art Challenge

once again, i have found myself in a rut. without getting into it too far (because this isn't the place to do it in) i kind of think i should say what (i think) is bothering me. lack of being productive and not living up to the expectations i have for myself discourages me more than just about anything, so in this ugly counter-productive cycle, inspiration does not "hit" and therefore i have no reason to make anything or do anything or be anything. because i don't feel like it.

and isn't that a crappy reason not to make art? i mean, this is what i want to do for my whole life and i let something silly like a change of mood stop me from making things. not good. especially if i want to get better and someday work for some un-realistic dream i may happen to have.

so here's the challenge. a 30 day-art challenge. starting (after exams- i'll let you know when) and going for the next 30 days i am going to be productive every single day whether i want to or not. and this is me asking you to hold me to it.

it will probably be bad some days. but since i'm trying to get a habit going here of making things continually, i'm going to turn off my mental filter and post everything. even if i think it's the most horrible thing ever. i hope i dont make anything that IS the most horrible thing ever, but if i do, then it will at least be out of my system for later.
