Sticks and Cellphones Phase I

Twig Project

My original idea for my twig project was very defined. At first my original model reminded me of an angel but later seemed to resemble a candelabra or a menorah. At the point my bonding agent was tape but I had hopes of using copper wire in some way.

I had difficulty allowing my model to progress because it had been so defined but I realized that I should allow the wits to run along the seams of the paper. I could then tie them in with copper wire.

I found gold floral wire as my bonding agent and large brown paper to make the base. I twisted pieces of wire together to give it thinker and textured so it would be more easily seen and pronounced. I made the mistake of adding gold spray paint which over complicated the project and took away from the gold of my bonding agent.

Over all I believe that my project looked nice but did not grasp the concept of the assignment.

Logs and Chair

Right after drawing them I didn't think that they looked like logs. Now I think they look pretty nice.

I was surprised that this was easier than it seemed. Not my favorite thing but I understand the concept of curves and shape.

Bike and Downtown

I really wish I was able to continue this. I love negative space and it's really hard to draw something like a bike when I don't have it in front of my face.

Contours of Downtown and area trees that I could see through my window.

A pile of sticks I still had sitting around.

Some DVDs and games laying on the floor.

Leaf Project

A photo of my leaf project.

My leaf project drawn without picking up the pencil. Not too hard for this at least.

Negative Space and Blind Contour

First negative space drawing. I see it and I like putting it on paper.

Blind contour of Christy. I remember doing this in AP Art with people I didn't know and it was horrible. Now its not so bad...Even if she looks like a zombie.

Blind contour of Stoel. It kind of looks like him.

I had never drawn a hand before this and I am excited to see that it's not as bad as people say.

Also some blind contour. They look pretty cool in a funky deformed kind of way.

5 Random Objects

Just a few things I had on me. I'm not to proud of this drawing but I think the glasses turned out very well. I think they look almost real.
