self portrait of this week

not as complicated in terms of design as last week, but much closer to my comfort zone. the lighter load gave me time to push the values. I might add some narrative elements to the background. clocks maybe? dali? we shall see.

self portrait of last week

here's me at my workspace pushing the envelope of modern composition! Okay its pretty straightforward, but it works in a down and dirty way. I can do better.

Another self portrait

I keep going back and forth on this one, im not sure what I think about it yet. good likeness, I guess but something a little bloated about the features. something is always a little askew with these things.

Chinese dragon- BIO 200

This is an assignment on creatures of myth. I chose the dragon, specifically the serpent-like chinese version because I think it has the most character. Looking into the subject further I found that dragons are to the chinese as gods and goddesses were to the ancient greeks. The chinese dragon also seems the least traditionally dragon, as it doesnt breathe fire or have wings, and additionally it looks more snake than lizard-like.

Halloween 2009

I think we bought somewhere in the neighborhood of like six pounds of assorted candy for the trick-or-treaters this year. We got a special door sign from management telling children that we were a trick-or-treater friendly unit. I actually had my fingers crossed that we wouldn't get too many kids because I wanted to have a little something left over. That wasn't a problem because we didn't end up getting a single knock on our door! :( Do you think it has anything to do with me taking the garbage out in my underwear? Oh and I carved a frankenstien pumpkin.
