Recent work from anatomical drawing:

I’ve done a bunch of work I’ve been really pleased with this semester, but have been lax about documenting and posting. Here’s some more of it:

“Use gestures to express emotion.”

I have also spent the semester producing Bad Paintings so far in my Beginning Painting class, appropriately. There’s something I really enjoy about the act of painting, but there’s also something I just can’t yet seem to grasp. Bye, GPA.

Here’s a particularly Bad one for an assignment in which we have to copy an impressionist painting. Mine: Monet’s Poppy Field’s in Argeuntil. Not really my favorite sort of thing. I’ve been trying to find some joy in abusing the canvas and my paint and experimenting with brushstrokes.

But it really just looks like color vomit.

My friend Rose invited me to visit her grandfather’s (who died this past year) old farm. It was about a 40-minute drive from Columbia got there just at sunset when the light was changing. Here are some photos.

Being watched by a field full of cows was almost as weird as the sounds they made, from cellphone vibration-esque to almost catlike.

I went out to get soup last night and came back to find I had a new task. We decided going with an evaluative piece (which I cut down from ~70 inches) from the AP on page 3, which readers would see as soon as they opened the paper, rather than blaring the news on the front the day after (though we did run a floorboard tease). For this reason, I chose to go with a quiet, more refined presentation set off from the rest of the page by white space.

Mucho thanks to Josh Barone, who is the best sounding board a girl could ask for.

So far, no one else has run the cuddly iMac photo. Which I think is a shame. It’s my desire to propagate it across the web:

A waitress wished me a belated happy birthday last night, so I feel it is still appropriate to mention I had one the other week (the 23rd of September).

It was marked by mustaches (Xiu Xiu, my face) and the state of illinois.

Back from SND today! It was quite fun, even if I probably did not schmooze as much as is conventionally suggested.

Nor did I pass out or trade as many business cards as I wanted to. Because I got too shy to show off in person, I’ll do it semi-anonmously on the Internet:

HOWEVER: I did see some excellent things and learn some excellent things and was stimulated enough to churn out a number of obnoxious sketches! Stay tuned.

PROFESSIONAL WORLD HERE I COME, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT
