I miss Figure Class

The other day I was going through my inventory and found this from my college days.  I never documented it, I think because I was not pleased with it or myself at the time.  But there is something raw about student work that I like in retrospect, so here it is.

Mural


My first mural is complete!  I should have my mom put that in my baby book.

My aunt and uncle are ridiculously cool and commissioned me to do up their wall.  Here are some photos:

My blank canvas, er... sheetrock.

At the end of the first day.

Crying Mermaid


It's been a while since I've linked up with Emily and her Imperfect Prose Community because I'm not a writer and I'm not totally convinced images can count as prose, but I'm linking up anyway because I like it.  So there.

Jack and Jill

When your bff from second grade gets married, you must party it up.
Here is the front of the tickets to their Jack & Jill, printed by the fabulous Vistaprint.

Checkers

 This is how it happened:
Early this past fall I saw this image in my brain:







Whatever it is.  I drew it on some cheap cold press water color sample paper because look at it for heaven's sake.









Then I took a photo that inspired me to draw so I drew on the back of the weird abstract thing.
After that, I soaked in car oil obviously and tore off the edges and let it dry for a long time.
Then the drawing inspired me to paint heavy acrylic in a blue-orange color scheme because everyone knows that's the best one.
But then I thought it was a little much so I gave my painting a bath because I'm a great mother.
Then I went back into and added details and declared that it was done.
And now if you hold it up to the light like this you can see both images.
