So these are two of my art projects from last year in Grade 11 Art, I've just gotten around to taking pictures of them. (I just recently got my work back from this years class... so hopefully I can take pictures of those soon too.

So first up is a painting I did. We were suppose to look at the work of a specific artist, in hopes of finding an inspiring subect or style. My teacher reccomended some Emily Carr stuff to me, which isn't my style at all... but my teacher's the kind of person that forces you to do what she "suggests" anyway... this is called "A Path Through the Woods" and is incredibly hard to photograph considering the amount of gloss medium that's on it, and I don't think these do it any justice. so there's on fuzzy photo and one more in focus, but just ignore the blinding white spot from the flash.

We also did some work with felt tip pens, making posters. I think we had the choice of doing a political poster, two things that didn't belong together or using repeating patterns. I used repeating patterns obviously. Yes, It took forever and used up many many pens, it's a regular poster size, about 2 feet by 3 feet. I used coloured pencils for some light tinting.

Whole thing:

Have you ever put a brick through a big plate-glass window, Ralph? It makes a wonderful goddamn noise, and the people inside run around like rats in a firestorm. It's fun, Ralph, and a bargain at any price
