So Where In The H*ll Have I Been?...


A really good question for just about everybody these days...

But anyway... I've been taking this art class. For some reason it's required for a Graphic Design degree...

I hate art.

I mean, I don't really "hate it" hate it. I just hate going to class 3 nights a week from 5:45 until 10:00 after working all day. It pretty much computes to Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. until Friday evening at 5:00 without much time for even a squat.

But I'm learning alot, I guess. I'm on week four of weekend projects too (in addition to the above mess.) All sorts of weird and funky stuff too that I've never done anything like before. I promise to share it with ya'll someday. Anyway, surprisingly I finished up early tonight. Usually I'm glue gunning things on the poster board at 5:00 on Tuesday in the restroom at work...

So I did this little extra credit project. Worth 10 points. *g* I figured I might need it.

Task: Take a black and white image and scale it up by 50% using a grid...

Here's the random image I chose:



And then I drew it bigger...



And no, I didn't cheat like by tracing or anything... I just took it one little box at a time...

Have I said lately how much I love art?

Chardonnay,

Great to see you back with a blog! I am in awe of our graphic designers, but you really do have a terrible schedule on top of your work.

Looking forward to many more "arty" reports in the coming weeks!

You have been busy! your art work is great, I like your girl better than the original :)

I like looking at art work, but have no talent for doing it..thought about lessons, but I totally dislike lessons of any sort! So I stick to doodling, LOL.

Have a good week.
