I randomly found these pics on my computer so i thought I'd share. They're all pieces I did in various art classes in school (we're talking elementary/HS. I'm an enginerd. My academic career is less arty and more ASCII). They're nowhere near the level of the stuff I've seen in this category- the amount of talented people here is crazy!Peacock:
I had a pic of a peacock out of the National Geographic (love the NG). The assignment was to take a piece of card, cut out a 1cm^2 square, place it on the picture and then draw what you see in that box on a bigger piece of paper. Here is the result.
I used chalk pastels on the worst paper - I think it was that type you draw on at Jack Astors or something. I rubbed my fingers raw, but I love it so. I also handed it in a week or so late because it wasn't perfect yet. I was cheeky as a kid.Camel:
graphite pencil. This is just out of my sketch pad. I have a camel figurine that I got from the UAE from a friend. Here he is gracing my wall.Scissors:
Another assignment. We were supposed to represent the concept of repetition.
I love the idea so much I might redo it someday. I've always loved modern art and the use of everyday object as the subject of art. I used those little pucks of paint you used when you were a kid and yet another piece of paper you'd draw on at a resto-bar. Sorry for the shoddy pic! Battery:
Completely amateur lithograph of a battery, but I think the colours match my room pretty well.
Here they all are hanging out together!
These pic is from 2 or 3 years ago. I used to put anything I thought was beautiful/interesting/fun up on my walls. It was kind of a sensory overload when you walked in there. I don't decorate like that anymore, so these are in a box somewhere.
I hope you enjoyed the work of my younger self!
