Hey guys! So I'm going to study abroad in Costa Rica tomorrow and the program gave us all black messenger bags with the Israeli paratrooper logo from army surplus (they basically looked like this: http://www.fatiguesarmynavy.com/images/items/odisraelibag77.gif but black). They're having a bag decorating contest, so here's what I came up with. Sorry there aren't before pictures, but it was just a black messenger bag:
Here's the inside pocket; the colors are a bit weird in this one, but the second one looks like it does in real life:
Aaaand here's the strap with my name on it (nobody stalk me )
So as I was packing to come home from college, I brought back with me approximately 4 million paintings etc. that I did on cardboard I found lying around downtown or that people gave to me. I was taking pictures for something else anyway, so I thought I'd post a few. My friend and I decided to go downtown and collect posters for bands' shows that had already past, then made collages out of them. Here's mine:
A purple curly-haired dude:
We decided that David Bowie was the patron saint of our dorm room, so I made this to go on the door:
And if you have an angel, you need a devil too, so Demon Sid Vicious got created to counterbalance Bowie's angelic charm:
David and Sid got put on the top and bottom of our door, respectively . So there you go! Maybe sometime I'll get around to posting the other 3,999,996 paintings.
OK, so here are a couple projects from my first year at college! The first one was for my portfolio review to get into the art school (which I found out that I passed on Monday, woo!) The theme had to be "dead heat," which means about the same as "neck in neck" I suppose. So here is God and the Devil fighting over a soul...
The whole thing is made of paper, and the little person in the middle is suspended in between their hands with fishing line.
Aaaand here's another project, an accordion pop-up zombie book. I took a picture of each page before and after you pull all the tabs and everything. Here's the cover:
And the whole thing:
When you push up the tab on the first page, hands rise out of the ground and the sky turns red:
Pull the top of the tombstone on this one and the zombie rises out of the grave (you can even make him dance around; super fun.)
This guy's eyeball just hangs loose. Pull the tab in his mouth and yum! Delicious brains! There's even a little maggot friend in his shoulder.
The zombies come rampaging through the city:
Delicious shoulder chunk:
Aaaand the last page. Originally it says "December 21st, 2012," the last day of the Mayan calendar. But when you pull on the little tab, the date changes to the 25th (how festive!) and you can pull the tab down to change everyone into zombies. Hurrah!
Whew, well that was a lot of pictures. Hope you guys like it!
Well, I've been officially sucked in. My first ATC was the one in the ATC Newcomer's challenge (which I guess I'll post in here after the challenge is over...), but here's ATC number two, inspired by this picture: http://www.woostercollective.com/HalfWayThrough1.jpg
So I wasn't sure if I'd like ATCing, but it actually rocked! It's just as creative as regular-sized art, but it caters to my impatience So here's my entry, dedicated to my darling mom, without whom I wouldn't have made this or anything else, ever :
Hello! So I've been wanting to customize my Macbook for awhile now, and yesterday I finally did, using plastic paint:
Or a better quality version: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v419/alezandria/More%20pictures/Mac1.jpg His cyborg-y eye is right over the apple logo, so when the computer is in use, it lights up. I must admit that my favorite part is the hand, the design of which I lovingly stole from the amazing Matt Cipov: http://www.mattcipov.com/. Hopefully he doesn't mind . Oh yes, and the little pink button on his hat says "Sex Pistols" and the white one has the logo of my favorite TV show, The Mighty Boosh. Sorry for the rather detailless picture.
Remember that if you're thinking about doing anything like this yourself, it may void your warranty!
OK, so I recently got a Macbook (yes! ) and want to make it my own. I was wondering if anybody knew what sort of paint I could use to paint a design on the front, which is made of plastic I suppose. Alternatively, is there any kind of sticker that would stay on really well and not deteriorate? Thanks guys!
