1st marking period finished?

Even with a few delays the first marking period has flown by so quick... It was a great start to my senior year i got to start papers for my book (picture above) i trying to stay a little more neutral then i usually do for my book but we will see if i can keep it up. And i just finished my project for Marist, I hope i get in! All the extra time in first period really helped me out. But i cant wait to start lanterns i think they are going to be pretty awesome when they are done and i cant wait to see what the rest of the year will bring!

Mixed Media!

We are starting Mixed media again! and even though some people hate it i love it, and i love how my collage turned out. we needed to pick a presidential candidate and an issue and i chose Obama and bringing the troops home. I chose them one because i wanted to use the picture from when i met Obama and two because i have quite a few cousins and close family friends in the army and i want to see them safe and home. But back to my collage i started with matt transfers for the base and then just layers of paint and peeling off of presidents faces to finish. i think the colors are great and i think i get my opinions across. take a look for your self.

Shoes and more shoes

So this year instead of apples we drew something that didn't rot oh so quickly. We drew shoes! I think they where a little harder then the apples, they had more detail I guess, and we had allot more space to cover on a full sheet of paper then the half sheet in last years books. but over all it was a fun time and i think mine turned out pretty well even though i had some issues with the shading because i didn't know how dark to make it all. what do you think...
