Eenie Meenie Miney Moe...

Listen to "Freedom Hangs Like Heaven" by Iron and Wine, I am truly obsessed with this song right now!

the life of a not-so-starving artist

Soon I will be applying to get into the visual arts dept for my major (art ed) and I need to get my portfolio ready...a little anxious seeing as I don't have as many pieces ready as I would like. But hopefully it will turn out great :) here of some of my favorite pieces:

this was an abstract where i used tempra paint, and then outlined and went in and put detail with graphite pencil.

this one is charcoal expression, inspired by a brazilian contemporary dance video. it was one of my final pieces for summer.

this is a charcoal drawing of a bust with a turban.

for my portfolio, i plan on adding some photography too, as well as some other pieces not featured here.


Europe Anyone?

I have submitted my long awaited application to the Art History Study Abroad in Europe for spring! It goes to Italy, France, and England. All I have to do now is wait!

let's shoot. vignettes that is.

I recently purchased a Mini Diana 35mm Camera (minus the flash) from ebay! I first saw it on Urban Outfitters but wanted a better deal, and plus this order came with 5 rolls of film already. Hopefully I get it in the mail soon so I can start shooting and developing amazing vignettes for fun and for this blog :)

My Life is Like a Bad Game of Tetris

I wish things in my life would finally fall into place, but lately it seems as if nothing at all is connecting the way it should. When will I get the high score for once?
