Ah, internet, how fickle you can be. Due to the lack of internet connection at my house, I have had to rely on the library, but am generally too busy or snowed in to make the trip. So, there's fewer updates than I'd like. I've been a busy bee, making christmas presents for the family. Being flat broke brings out the crafty side of me. Well, the fact that the last weeks of school were spent staring at a computer screen also gave me cravings to just make things with my hands. Here, though, is what I did the last weeks of school, starting with the rest of my intaglio final:
The devil and angel in color, which I then used for the multiplate piece in the previous post:
Basically, I was playing with the idea of the "characters" who control our fate being trapped and no longer in control of their fate. I bound them into a little booklet, which I will probably improve when I take bookbinding next semester.
I finally finished my tea kettle that I'd mentioned weeks ago. I decided to do a glass/metal fusion:
I love how blogger changed the background colors to a putrid green. Ah well.
Finally, my type class did a bus wrap project for the Connective Corridor and Centro. The Post Standard reported on it here.
Oh my! I have to run and finish my Christmas shopping and making! Hopefully more updates after the holiday!
