In an attempt to eat something that didn't come from a box, bag, or restaurant, I cooked (baked?) some bruschetta. Alright, alright. It was for a potluck, but I do mean to start cooking more. You know, going to the store, buying ingredients, learning about spices, the whole shabang.
Jenna made mac & cheese (from scratch!) and learned what paprika was...

Today, the 25th of April year 2010, marks the end of the largest collection ever to be seen of Mr. Marcel Dzama's work at Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal. It hurts me to have not made it out to see the exhibition.
On the bright side, he is only 36 years old. There have got to be more collections like this in the future, right?

Today is the first day of my never-ending summer. I celebrated by sleeping in and watching Lost. This life of leisure will quickly end as I realize all the projects I'm taking on aside from having more than one part-time job. This is what I chose for myself. My life as an illustrator.
Here's my new workspace that needs sprucing up now that A&D is taking away my studio (thanks a lot, ya jerks!).

Here are a few photos of my I.P. project from made from scratch at Spare House.
Being as smart as I am, I forgot to scan my drawings before hanging them. Enjoy the nice 'orb' effect before I go professional on ya.

I always knew Matt Shlian (young, bearded professor here at A&D) was a master of paper folding, paper cutting, and the like, but I had never seen his drawings...until now.
I'm in one of those don't-study-for-your-last-university-exam-ever-and-procrastinate-instead moods. I was perusing blogs that make me feel excited about creating art, found but does it float, and saw the name 'matt shlian.' CLICK -- drawings galore!
Here's to hope in the future of drawing at A&D...

I don't want to show in the A&D galleries. I knew that from the start. With so many IP students, I wouldn't be able to get the right amount of space I see my project having. There are 101 kids this year, and yes, we are like dalmatians due to the fact that we're all lost puppies.
I introduce you to made from scratch at Spare House, an offsite IP show! It's turned into a complete home installation, indoors and out!
Be there or be, well...not there.

I like the idea of taking the art out of the gallery, so I'm giving away small books at the opening of my IP show. It also goes along with the hope that I'm not the only one who experiences moments of self-pity, sadness, unluckiness, etc. as my character does...
Here are two of the drawings in pencil. Soon to be inked, where I can then decide whether to use the pencil or pen drawings for the final product.
