Woo, just finished painting my friend’s roller derby helmet! First time I’ve done something like this, the curved & groovy surface made this super challenging.
Thursday night, 5pm
Friends: So we’re doing Jabba the Hutt for the sand sculpture event on Saturday!
Me: I should paint a cardboard cutout thing of Princess Leia to go with it, hahaha.
Friends: DO IT.
Java Monster: *is drunk*
Cardboard: *is aquired*
Beats Antique: *is playing*
Me: Let’s do this.
5am: *sneaks up on me*
Friday – Saturday
My body: can we collapse now plz
Me: Bo~ring! Instead let’s dig in the sand for three hours and get really sunburned!
My body: D: D:
My brain: *is clearly missing*
Massive fun: *is had*
This was ridiculously fun to do! First time working this big, first time painting figures in acrylic, very little experience making stuff out of cardboard either. Lots of trial and error, many interesting discoveries. Also the first public showing of my art! It was a big hit. Apparently it was even in the local paper, I haven’t seen it myself yet though.
Wrapping up the still life posts with my favorite paintings of the semester*, all done towards the end as I started to get the hang of acrylics.
* except for the metal ones, which I already posted over here.
This semester brought to you by Java Monster, Stash Tea, supersweet coffee and strategic catnaps.
Did this one on Halloween, breaking for a couple of hours in the middle to throw on a costume and go party.
I admit I bought this wine for the label originally, but actually it’s quite good. Goes well with pizza. 😀
The egg-shaped thing in the bowl is actually a rock. The brown box is my favorite brand of cinnamon coffee scented Japanese incense, which I was sad to find is no longer being sold in the San Francisco Japantown shops.
Or is it still lives? I still (ha) don’t know. Those last two were my final two projects of the class.
