Lost Photos, No More Facebook, Fashion Blogs, & "Art"

Well, I just solved my dilemma, but for awhile I had lost all my photos that were saved in iPhoto, but the iPhoto library had been saved to my external hard drive.  I didn't understand why my photos weren't showing up?  Was the myth true? That if you don't safely eject your hard drive everything will be erased? I was in a near panic! But thankfully, the myth is still a myth. I just called Apple Support, apparently it was an easy fix (hold down Option while clicking on iPhoto, and choose library).  The apple support techies are such smarty pants.

Why is Facebook so addicting? I don't know why, but I am giving up Facebook for as long as possible; I'll start off with one week and go from there. But I wonder how long that'll last, I hope my resolve will endure.

I feel like I should type more stuff in in this post since I never write on my blog...Like, maybe, (sorry for the horrible grammar Mr. Benitez) how I'm super behind in Eng 200 and I should probably be annotating sources, writing my review of the literature, and starting on my rough draft, but instead I'm posting theses images and telling you (whoever you are) about my inconsequential little life...yeah.  enjoy

i know that water bottle sucks, ok?!

My roommate and I were photographed for a Richmond Fashion Blog at First Fridays.  I don't know if they'll actually put us up, but it was pretty cool at the time.  My roommate was ecstatic. A real confidence booster.

I went to Crossroads with my Aunt, her sister, my cousin, and his girlfriend.  I had a great time with them.  It's nice to hang out with family.

so...have a nice weekend

Getting Into Digital Painting

Since I suck at traditional painting, maybe (without wasting money) digital painting would be good practice. This is the (5 hour) start of a thumbnail I started in my Moleskine. I've still got a LONG way to go, but it's been pretty fun for the most part! (I should be reading a world lit only by fire...but I'm procrastinating with practice)

Crap I'm going to have to upload the image later! it's not working right now :/ enjoy this instead

I had to do an assignment for my software class turning myself into a zombie. It was fun learning how to use textures to manipulate a photo.

Photo Series 2

This is my 2nd series of three that I included in my portfolio for the 2009 AFO Portfolio Review

Portfolio Photos

This is a series of three digital images that I put in my Portfolio for the 2009 AFO Portfolio Review.

Portfolio Reviews

Perry the Owl Trophy Head (he's fierce, so watch out!)

Ravens In Flight

Big Daddy Marshall

Aggghhhh! The Portfolio Reviews are coming, the Portfolio Reviews are coming! Well actually it's today, but I won't find out if I got into Communication Arts till next Wednesday (I'm so nervous, but very excited!)

Time to for Some Art

This is a large (30"x40") piece I did for my Drawing Studio class in AFO Fall 2008. I loved my teacher, Anthony Meloro, who had us draw ourselves "Incognito". I chose to represent myself between a mix of masquerade meets robin hood and throwing in a bit of late 18th early 19th century clothing(?). It was fun to do, but stressful nonetheless.

Whaaaat a glorious morning!

It's so nice outside I think I want to go out and play...

by Shel Silverstein

"I cannot go to school today,"
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
"I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.
My mouth is wet, my throat is dry,
I'm going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I've counted sixteen chicken pox
And there's one more--that's seventeen,
And don't you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut--my eyes are blue--
It might be instamatic flu.
I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I'm sure that my left leg is broke--
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button's caving in,
My back is wrenched, my ankle's sprained,
My 'pendix pains each time it rains.
My nose is cold, my toes are numb.
I have a sliver in my thumb.
My neck is stiff, my voice is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,
I think my hair is falling out.
My elbow's bent, my spine ain't straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,
There is a hole inside my ear.
I have a hangnail, and my heart is--what?
What's that? What's that you say?
You say today is. . .Sunday*?
G'bye, I'm going out to play!"

*changed 'Saturday' to Sunday...since today is Sunday
