well not too old but old enough to be old.
first we'll tackle the 10th grade school project: The Julius Caesar Theme Park.
in 10th grade English, you read Julius Caesar. The teacher gave us an assignment sheet with about 10 different projects on it for us to choose from. The one project was actually a brochure for a Julius Caesar Theme Park. I decided i was far too cool to just do a brochure so i made the whole theme park. The park is the size of a foam posterboard. I used various Wal*Mart craft supplies such as felt, paint, Crayola Magic Mold, wooden dowels, wooden bits. It took me 14+ hours in the span of 5 nights to complete. It was a bitch to carry onto the bus but i got a 100% on it so i guess it was worth it.
The park itself was divided into the 5 acts with the ride names being fashioned after something that had happened in that scene. There was even a kiddie section with a Trojan Horse because i just wanted to make one. Onto the pictures.
the tallest ride, The Soothsayer, is about a foot tall if not bigger.
Acts 4-5 + Kiddie Land
Now 11th grade year, we had a jerk of an English teacher. We had this project for a whole grading period called an ABC Book. Basically you read a book and then pick elements out of the book, one for each letter of the alphabet. You had to have descriptions and pictures. I only got an 87% or something on it? I recieved a B. I wasn't too happy considering i had about 3 weeks to make it when everyone else had 9 (its a long story). The main reason i did so poorly was because i used newspaper as a background and it was "distracting" and it confused the teacher because she wasn't sure if it had a purpose or not. My purpose was to make the pages look uniform. Splatter painting played a huge part in this. The whole thing is made out of poster board, paint, glitter, and ribbon. Plus whatever else is on the individual pages.
I read Life, The Universe, and Everything. I only took pictures of my favorite pages because i didn't feel 29 pictures would be appropriate.
