I went to Pixar!

I went to Pixar animation studios this week! It was completely amazing! I am hoping to post some pics and some thoughts on the day trip I had with my mom on wednesday. I just wanted to say that one of my childhood dreams was just was awesome! Thanks to my friend Kevin for making it happen!

Rest in Peace, Steve Jobs

Someone at church asked me today if I was going to color it, my mouth said yes, but my heart said no.

So to be safe I say, "More Halloween stuff on the way, maybe."

It's a Skeletohhhn! (Oct. Banner)

I ended up drawing a bunch of sketches for the banner for this month (believe it or not); some of which took me a good chunk of an hour or two. And then there's this one. Me likey. I kept in the original sketch below, because he has this whimsical look which I feel I lost in the colored version. But whatevers. And you may also have noticed that the composition I have in my blog header and the one in this post are different (props to you). I like the one in this post more as a picture, however, it looked weird compressed into the header (namely my John Hancock), so I have a different one up. More Halloween posts still to come! and I changed some pics on my blog around for the haunt-ivities!

There you go, the original sketch! I drew this in history class, because you know I had nothing better to do, after is history class.

Art 140

duuhh-duhh-duhh-dUuhh-dUUHH-dUUUUuuhh-DDUUUUUHHHH! Behold, a few of the steps to painting a PAINTING! Hahaa...well there go. I sort of like how you can see the still life in the background of the second one.

As you can see the first two were taken at class, and the final one was taken yesterday, on my bed, right before I went to class. I find it sort of ironic that the one thing on earth that could possibly ruin and destroy my beautiful painting just happened to be the vile thing falling from the sky yesterday! I don't think I ever walked across the school parking lot from my car faster than I did yesterday. Here's hoping I get a good grade!

As I mentioned last time (and as if you could guess), these pics are from my Beginning Painting class. It is lotsa' fun, but kind of slow. However, I didn't tell you about the other thing I have been doing with my friend after my Beginning Painting class on Wednesdays: Animation Club! My friend's dad knows the instructor, so I have gone with them the last two weeks, and let me tell you--it is AWESOME! Last week I did I walk cycle (similar to the September banner except more frames), and yesterday I did a four-legged walk cycle which was suUUUper fun! I'm learning a lot already, and I have only been there twice.

Well, this took waaaay longer than I was hoping it would, but I thought I would catch all two of you up on my life right now...and right now...its time for history. :'(
