Sheep and gift

I've been working on a design to submit to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, so there it is. Watercolor obviously, because really, what else do I do? The picture completely sucks, though, it looks so much better in real life. The words inside are different breeds of sheep that are raised for their wool. Thanks to Mom for helping me think of more than Border Leicester and Merino.

The other set of pictures I've uploaded are of a t-shirt that I made for the president of Students For Life, Lauren. An assignment in my CFC class was to make a gift for the group we volunteered for that they might not necessarily want/need. Lauren told me (and others) that she would love to have a tshirt that had a picture of a vacuum cleaner that said 'Abortion Sucks' on it, but she wouldn't wear it because it kind of crossed the line (what line, I have no idea). So anyways, I made it for her, and I think it turned out really nice. I've half a thought to make one for myself. I hope she wears it, but I kind of doubt it. We shall see.

SFL debate

A couple weeks ago I joined Students For Life, a Pro-Life group here on campus. The first day I joined we did this peaceful protest (LIFECHAIN) at the intersection of E. Huron and Washtenaw (by Whole Foods, me and my mom's favorite place to eat in A2). That was pretty cool. Now the group, along with Student Society for Stem Cell Research, is hosting a debate to discuss Proposal 2 (the legalization of stem cell research here in Michigan). Guess who got to design the posters? Guess who had only 2 days to do it? Ka-chah!

Printmaking Project

Today I was working on my Exquisite Corpse project for my Printmaking class. The Exquisite Corpse project is this cool idea where people draw out different sections of the body, and they all connect together to make one whole body... I didn't explain that very well. Whatever. Anyways, I got the head and shoulders, so this is what I came up with. I just began carving it today, its really kind of hard to get all those little details in. But still fun.
All the kids in my class brought in drawings of whatever section of the body they picked the other day, and we made sure they connected...It looked way cool. I'm really excited for all of them to be printed out and connected together, because we're going to be showing them in the All Student Exhibition in the art school this November!
